Serendipity

A favorite quote of ours is from author Tom Robbins in Even Cowgirls Get the Blues:

“Plans are one thing and fate another. When they coincide success results.”

It goes hand in hand with Serendipity, the chance occurrence and development of events in a happy or beneficial way.  We love this word as it speaks to possibilities: bumping into an old friend you haven’t seen for years, meeting someone completely new and hitting it off, then finding out they work at the company you’ve been trying to get into, taking a wrong turn and discovering a cool new restaurant. These signs are always around us and too often in our busy lives, we don’t stop to pay any attention to them…

We encourage you to take a moment to bathe in coincidence and serendipity – see where it may lead you and what amazing things you may discover about yourself and your world.
