Never Ignore a Coincidence…Unless You’re Busy

Never ignore a coincidence - eleventh doctor

“Never ignore a coincidence. Unless you’re busy, in which case always ignore a coincidence.” – The Doctor

(This post has absolutely nothing to do with Doctor Who….I swear. That said…)

I’ve come to believe that there is no such thing as coincidence, or is there?

Lately I’ve been thinking about joining a gym….again. I usually join a gym, go for a few days then just stop going until my membership expires, then I want to go again.

A few weeks back I had a dream, and the only thing I remember from said dream is that I missed going to the gym, and that I really wanted to start going again. Of course I just ignored the whole thing and totally forgot about the dream until….

Several days later on my way to work I see a sign at a gym I didn’t even know existed (well in all fairness I knew it existed I just didn’t know that they had a female only section) with a special offer for a 3 month membership. Again I ignore the whole thing until my curiosity got the better of me and so….

A few days later I was asking a co worker who lives in the area if she knew anything about said gym, she didn’t, and then another coworker jumped in to say that she’d joined that gym because of their offer and that she likes it. She gave me their number so that I could call them, which I did, but I was still wondering about where the entrance to the building was because the guy on the phone was like, “you need to go up the street next to the building and you’ll see some metal stairs on the other side” and I was like, “Huh?” WTF? I didn’t even know there was a street next to that building! So once again I decided to forget about the whole thing until….

A few days later while I was on my way to work the bus took a detour because of traffic and ended up passing through said street…AND I saw the metal stairs the guy was talking about on the phone!

So now I’m wondering, is this all a sign that I should go ahead and join that gym, or should I just ignore the whole thing because it’s all a coincidence and use the gym money to buy myself some awesome electronic gadget that I don’t really need?

Last year when I was in Australia (July 2010) I used to go to gym with my sister in law in the evenings, and watch MasterChef Australia while I was on the treadmill. This proved to be a blessing because I only ended up gaining 2 kilos during my vacation instead of 5 (woohoo).

I’d always wanted to try out Zumba and they had 2 classes every week. I tried my best to go to as many as I could but either I’d be out “being a tourist” somewhere else at the time of the class or I’d be too tired to go to the gym that day because I’d spent it in Centro walking around and shopping all day, so I ended up going to only 2 or 3 classes.

I’m not very good at aerobics and do better on machine and since I’m not that fit I get exhausted too quickly and end up doing all the moves without the “bounce” so I avoid it. But Zumba was is different, it was fun and I managed to keep up with most of the moves.

This video brings back so many memories…It was one of the dances we did in Zumba…I’m even surprised I still remember all of the moves!

I really wish the gym I go to here in Jordan had Zumba at least once a week, I would totally make time for it. Le sigh.
