How we interpret signs reveal more than the sign itself
Practically, I view “signs” as reminders. Or they could be symbols that are associated with other ideas.
What we should be mindful of are not necessarily the “sign” itself, for ultimately they are just representations. The value is in reviewing how we think or interpret these supposed signs, for our interpretations may reveal our thoughts and biases (i.e., metacognition and meta-reflection).
It is fascinating indeed how one man’s trash can be riches for another. In this vein, maybe it pays to view the world more as half-full rather than half-empty.
