Serendipity is that happy surprise we were not consciously expecting. Sometimes the smallest thing like thinking of a friend at the same moment they call or wandering into a bookshop and a book you have always wanted to read accidentally falls off the shelf.
We often have those lovely encounters in our day that we dismiss as mere coincidence. I don’t allow many of those things to go unnoticed anymore. I believe that everything is connected and even though we may not understand the relevance at the time, there is a reason behind it. There is no such thing as a chance encounter, we have created or drawn to ourselves exactly what is occurring.
I have gotten much better about asking “what does this mean and what do I need to learn?” It helps in even the most trying situations. When the answer comes, it usually is when I least expect it and it always makes me smile because I know it is Serendipity.
