40 Days 40 Words: Serendipity

Today's word: serendipity.  Have you ever been searching for something, maybe not in the physical sense (although it could be) but searching and you discover something else that is even better suited for you than that which you were originally searching for. That's serendipity.  Perhaps you are in a book store looking for a particular book but alas they don't have it. So you pick up another one and discover an author that you love with a whole trail of books for you to devour.

Remember that earlier word: messengers? Messengers and serendipity often go hand in hand!

Sometimes you drive down an unexpected road and find an awesome new restaurant. Sometimes you have to move grade levels and find out that the one you moved to you love even more than where you were before. Life is full of unexpected things. The more you are authentic, the more serendipity seems to happen. Isn't it wonderful how everything is really interrelated. Messengers, being authentic, serendipity, dancing, adventure, and if one considers it, almost all the words I have presented here are tied to each other. I didn't set out to write it that way but it's like the great web of life.

May serendipity be present in your life so that the ways you travel are full of unexpected events that lead you down a sublime, exquisite path!
