Firstly, Happy Easter to anyone celebrating, and Happy ‘Stuff Your Face With Chocolate’ Day for anyone who’s just enjoying the food side of this occasion.
I was at a loss about what to write today; I found myself lying on my bed for over half an hour in deep thought but nothing came to mind. So I proceeded to continue watching a korean drama I had started a few days ago (shamelessly, I’m already on episode 13…) and hope that something eventually comes to mind.
The korean drama I’m watching is extremely cute; called Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, it is a romantic comedy with a romantic scenario that could only really play out in a drama but has you longing for it to happen to you at some point in your life. The scenes between the lead couple reminded me of one of my favourite quotes by one of my favourite authors:
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” – Paulo Coelho
I don’t know about love, but I can’t help but see this to be true with other situations. Not in a literal sense, but that when you want something, you put yourself in a position where certain opportunities become available to you or you’re more aware of particular steps you need to take; things start to fall into place, even if so slowly, as if all the universe is helping you achieve it. You become so invested in it that it’s as if it’s the only thing in your world.
Love is tricky. The quote may be applicable in the sense of your whole world starting to be about that person, your decisions and choices revolving around that one person, but whether it works out depends on that person too – a person with their own feelings and opinions, a someone and not an inanimate something. But I guess it falls in line with the saying ‘if it’s meant to be, it will be’.
I don’t know if my interpretation of it made any sense, but I hope someone can make sense of it too.
What would your interpretation of the quote be? Is the universe really conspiring to make you achieve your deepest desires?
