Good Things Come in Threes, Too
Ever heard the phrase, things come or go in threes? The concept of things in groups of threes catches our attention. In literature, it’s called the Rule of Three.
The Three Wise Men.
The Three Muskateers.
The Three Little Pigs with three houses.
Aladdin and his three wishes.
You get the picture. But outside of relating to literature or fables, how have you heard the rule of three?
People die in threes.
Catastrophes happen in threes.
I’ve only every heard the phrase “They come in threes” in negative ways: people die in threes, situations happen in threes. That’s it.
What about good things happening in threes? I have never heard anyone say that until recently in a Sunday Post. Do you believe in this? That good things also happen in threes? It is hard to riddle out, as my brain has been wired to only pick out threes in negative.
Recently I wrote a post for the weekly meme My Favorite… and it was about the best thing that had happened to me so far in 2018. My answer? The Man breaking up with me back in March, which was a good thing. He was lying and cheating, so it’s good to go and get on with life than be living your life in web of deceit and untruths.
Since then, good things have happened to me. Lots of good things, but some that tie directly to the break up.
- I found and moved into a better housing situation where I have plenty of space and live alone again.
- My hair is starting to really thicken. It’s also growing, but it is not as noticeable as the thickness.
- I am infinitely closer to work, saving time and money.
You can go read the original post with about 30 or so different things I listed out as a result of the split – positive things for me!
Can you think of any good things that have happened in your life in threes?
