Do you believe in coincidences?

About a year ago, a strange man suggested I read "The Celestine Prophecy" by James Redfield. At the time, I felt complacent in life and kind of depressed. I was interviewing for a promotion at work and was so sure I would get it having been in the same department for a couple of years, but life would take me to another path. The same strange man was the man interviewing me, and I didn't get the job. This really took a toll on me, being already depressed, and I decided to take a leave of absence from work.

My leave is almost ending, and I am not sure I want to go back to my work. I feel as if this is one of those opportunities in disguise. I was unhappy with my work to begin with as it brought me little fulfillment. My true passion is in being creative and artistic. This could be my chance to pursue that path.

Anyways, last night I remembered about the book "The Celestine Prophecy" and started reading it. Then this morning, I experienced a lucid dream for the first time. I had been keeping a dream journal for a month now and enjoy creating collages of my dreams in photoshop. As I was googling for images... I ended up on dreamstime.com. I thought this was a funny coincidence since I was making a collage of my dream. It just so happens that I am also passionate about photography and unemployed. I am not going too far into saying this could be my main source of income as that is not realistic, but I feel as though a series of events led me to here for a reason.

Lately I had been debating the practicality of going back to my stable job or jumping into the unknown and pursuing my passion. Ending up here this morning only made me more confident to do the latter.

Sorry this was long, but thanks for reading if you've made it this far. :)

>>> PS. What I actually wanted to as was how do you create a blog on dreamstime? Or is it only available after a while? I just signed up today. Thanks in advance.
