Red Thread

There is an interesting Chinese legend  that revolves around a red thread.  Many people believe that when we are born we are connected by an invisible thread that binds us to people we are “destined” to meet and as we grow older that thread tightens or becomes shorter, in a sense pulling us closer to those significant others. Those significant others I am thinking about is not our family because it’s a given that those closest to us will be there. I am talking about total strangers who we are destined to meet in different times or phrases in our lives where we will need them for whatever reason. It is not too far-fetch to conceive that some of us will meet people who will inspire us to be spiritually rich when we have strayed and given in to temptation. Some of us will meet people who will challenge us to be physically stronger when we are feeling lackadaisical.  Also, some of us will be lucky enough to meet someone who will encourage us to build up our mental fortitude so we can continue to  meet any challenge head on.  These remarkable people may be our best friends, lovers, family members, but they can also be total strangers who are connected to us by that invisible red thread.  Ergo,it makes perfect sense to me that  “An invisible red thread connects those who [we] are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but it will never break”. I believe that there is a rhyme and reason for everything that happens in our lives, even the negative things has its purpose. However, we are fortunate enough to live in a world where we are not alone, where we can connect with others who will be there for us at a time when we are the most desperate, in a place we least expect, and in the most odd circumstance.  Be optimistic and have faith that we are all connected.  Like Maya Angelou says, ” We should focus on our commonalities instead of our differences!”
