I have always wondered about people saying that they have received white feathers, a sign from above showing them that someone is there for them, or that they are on the right path. I have always believed in a spiritual place, angels and other higher beings etc. but I have never received signs that other people talk about, only a feeling of knowing they are there, which, as lovely as this feeling is, is not always as comforting as having something physical!
For about a year, maybe slightly more, I have been thinking about purchasing my own house. I have a reached a stage in my live where I no longer wish to deal with the hassle of renting, having to harass my landlady or agency to get things sorted, and I now want to have something of my own that I can decorate and furnish as I choose and can live somewhere I can truly call my own. Up until now, it has not been reasonable for me to buy somewhere, due to being in college, not knowing where I would be living upon graduating, jobs, etc. But now that I have a job in Cardiff, and am well and truly settled here with friends, now seems as good a time as any for me to go ahead with my plan!
I sat down and spoke everything through with my parents, what I was looking for, mortgages, solicitors, everything that I would need to do, I have spoken to many of my friends about it, who have all agreed to help me decorate and I have even found myself a tenant for my spare room, and everything seems to be settling into place, despite the fact that there are currently no properties on the market, but that will change after christmas I’m sure!
I finally settled on the fact that it will all be going ahead for sometime during next year on saturday night, and honestly, I’ve never felt happy being so secure on something that I really want! When I woke up the next day, I got dressed and put my glasses on! Caught in the clasp of them was a white feather, and I can honestly say I have no idea how it could have got there, my windows are always shut and I have nothing containing feathers within my room, so I took it as a sign, a sign that I was doing the right thing.
Seeing the white feather filled me with confidence and certainty, just knowing that I am leading my live in the right direction! I know now that I want a flat by July next year, if I can, and my parents have agreed to come up and help me with everything! I am over the moon about it and so excited to start looking and organising somewhere that is really mine! And now, after seeing a sign, I feel I am ready to see, and accept, more, so that I can notice when Im on the right track and when I’m ready for the next big stage of my life!
