The joys of serendipity
Posted on 6th February 2019 at 08:15
We often talk about the joys of serendipity and how life has a way of – almost (!) – magically falling into place IF we allow it to. Letting it unfold in its own way AND at its own pace. Often this happens in ways we never could have anticipated or takes us off in a completely new direction that turns out to be exactly what we wanted.
If you’re not sure what we’re talking about – or it just sounds too good to be true – here’s a great definition of serendipity:
“The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.”
And, for those who love trivia, did you know that it was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754? His inspiration came from “The Three Princes of Serendip”, a fairy tale where the heroes “were always making discoveries, by accident and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of.”
