Meant To Be

Do you believe in fate? That things are meant to be? Couple of weeks ago, I gave up my Coldplay ticket in Singapore to a friend. No fuss, I did want to go but he wanted it more for someone else and asked. I said ok and I was actually ok. Though I do like Coldplay and would have liked to go and see them. Fast forward to April 7, I arrive in Bangkok for a weekend getaway with a couple of friends and guess what I find out? Coldplay is playing in Bangkok on April 7! So I went, if we could find reasonable tickets, we’ll go and we did!

After a crazy ordeal of collecting our tickets, which we weren’t sure were legit or not till we were seated in the stadium, and navigating to the venue on foot, we got there just in time for them to come on stage and start the show. I’m definitely a fan of the earlier albums, the first one in particular but it was still a very enjoyable show with the band coming across sincere and like they were genuinely having fun. More than that, I got to share the concert with one of my dearest mates who isn’t my typical concert buddy but I think that will change now. So do you believe that some things are just #meanttobe? I’m already sold on the concept … though a very logical part of me fights it a lot. Getting to watch Coldplay in Bangkok with Resh was just meant to be.

Honestly, I couldn’t imagine going through the ordeal of navigating traffic, taking trains when there’s no cabs, walking and walking and walking, waiting an hourย for a cab that on the app said was only 9mins away with someone who wouldn’t call it quits and brought out the best in me despite the highly stressful situation. It open a side of each other we already knew but I guess with this experience solidified the fact that we do complement each other in the way lifetime friendships are built. That’s why I had to give up my Singapore ticket and come to Bangkok to watch Coldplay instead.

In the greater scheme of things, there is a plan, reasons for why things happen or who comes into your life. Even the bad stuff, there is a reason. Someone out there makes it all happen, someone bigger, someone who knows more, someone who has a plan. My role is to surrender and trust.ย To be grateful. To keep an open mind. I don’t have to understand when it happens but it’ll eventually be made clear. Like with the Coldplay concert, I get why I had to give up my Singapore ticket so easily. I was meant to go, just in a different city with a different friend ๐Ÿ™‚ And possibly start a new tradition!

Here’s to things that are meant to be! Just let go and trust is my theme for the week.

One thought on “Meant To Be

  1. WOW. I can’t believe THIS just happened. In a space of an hour, I went from being unsure to having my faith strengthened tenfold. I’m more sure than ever that God/the universe/angels/whatever you believe in is guiding & supporting us every step of the way. It’s too woo-woo to write this out but I think the Universe just sent me a very powerful message. Logic is a good thing but sometimes it lacks a sense of humour ๐Ÿ˜Š Funny too how I was thinking that if it weren’t for you, I’d be a wreck from the stress of our Coldplay adventure๐Ÿ˜„ I am so blessed in so many ways and your friendship & love is one of my biggest blessings. And for that, I’m sincerely grateful. Also I want you to know that I don’t need you to be perfect for me to feel this way about our friendship. Love you heaps just as you are ๐Ÿ˜˜
