In my story about the carrot, the egg and the coffee beans, way back in January, I wrote about how we should all strive to be “coffee” in 2007.
Well, my wish has literally come true!
To cut a long story short, I have an article due to be published in the company magazine for a company based in Georgia, USA.
I was today sent a copy of the draft and I pointed out to the magazine editor that my surname was printed as “Gevalia” rather than “Devalia”.
Well, it turns out that Gevalia is a famous brand of coffee there.
So my wish to be coffee in 2007 has come true!
The lesson is this – be very careful about what you ask for 🙂
May all your wishes continue to come true – and may all of YOU be coffee too.
Also, I would love to hear YOUR examples of wishes that have uncannily come true in a strange way!
Some twenty two or twenty three odd years ago, my husband and I decided to try for immigration into the US as our infant son kept having bronchopneumonia, and a cold country was recommended by our paediatrician. After the green card, everything went wrong with the job that brought us here (story published in Coming to America, ATLANTA magazine, July 2005), and we had to consider going back. We never did. Today, we are what can be considered a true American success story. March 13, 1986 could not give us any indication of today, exactly 21 years to the day. We do business with the US Navy,our daughter is a successful businesswoman, and our son, 24, a permanent employee of the US Congress. So, if we choose what we wish for, we can make them come true.
Dear Dr Indrani,
What a great story!
Many happy returns on your 21 years in the USA.
Inspirational stuff! We dreamt that one day we’d see the places we wanted to see. Then we wrote down our dreams and within 3 months had packed our backpacks and did exactly that during our blissful year off the corporate treadmill…
Our journey continues! Thanks for the inspiration Dr Indrani – you are a flower smeller for sure! We’d love to share your story with others…
