Do you believe that things happen for a reason?
I have been trying to get a special favor from a hotel that our company is working with. But the hotel has been very slow in getting back to me for my request, and I was on the verge of losing my patience with them. I was going to follow up with them again today.
Then I was supposed to go for dinner with a group of ex-colleagues tonight but I changed my mind earlier today and told them that I wasn't going.
Earlier tonight, a colleague at work told me of a very special deal from a very nice service apartment that I used to stay at before, at a much better location. So I called to my fiance and made a booking immediately.
If the first hotel had gotten back to me earlier, if I had gone out with my ex-colleagues, I would not have heard of this very good offer.
I always believe that if I don't get something that I want, there is always something better waiting for me later. And it has already worked out for the better for me. Weird, but I am definitely not complaining!
