Isn’t it a coincidence?

What is a coincidence? Something you have found by chance without even thinking about it.

Have you ever gone into a bookshop and started wandering to find something your genre and discovered that was the best thing you’ve ever read?

Have you ever been somewhere knowing nothing about the place and then found the most breathtaking spot you’ve ever seen?

Have you ever gone to a cinema, chose a random movie and found out it was thrilling and worth watching?

I don’t believe in coincidences, but serendipity is something else, it’s that feeling in your gut that makes you choose, that keeps you on the edge, that is full of suspense for what will happen: I call that “look for everything and nothing”.

Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.

    Serendipity…the outcome of an underestimated outlook….but the coincidence is something never looked for….though we may not believe in them….they make us believe that they exist….like you went for a movie…found your best friend sitting in next row….you write on something….your fellow blogger also appear similar….what a coincidence…!
