Serendipity is my FAVORITE force in the universe. I actively court it and expect it in my life. I’ve found close to $2,000 in cash lying on sidewalks, dance floors, subways, and more. I expect to find money to the point of calling myself the Queen of Found Money.
I meet new people “randomly” that lead to all sorts of unforeseeable connections and outcomes. It never even occurred to me to start a career in the love industry (and I didn’t know there was such a thing as the love industry), before a random conversation with a woman I didn’t know at a BBQ led me to discover Paul C. Brunson. I followed him on Twitter because she did, and it was a tweet from him that eventually led me to the Matchmaking Institute.
That encounter literally changed my life. I’d never met that woman before and I haven’t seen her since. (I do follow her on Twitter, though!) I never, ever in a million years could have imagined that talking to a stranger at a BBQ would change my life.
Most recently, I started writing a book inspired by a conversation I had with a woman I met at a restaurant in Amsterdam. I might never see her again, but I am so grateful for that chance meeting!
I could go on and on. In fact, I recently wrote a list of all the unexpected encounters I’ve had that wound up significantly impacting the trajectory of my life. It was a long list. And those are the just the ones I can remember and paid attention to.
“Where attention goes, energy flows” is a constant refrain in my life. And I give a lot of attention to serendipity.
How about you? Can you think of some of the times in your life something unexpectedly and improbably wonderful happened? The last time you decided to turn right instead of left and something incredible happened as a result?
What about the last person you encountered who turned out to have a profound impact on your life?
If you’ve never given much attention to these kinds of events, I encourage you to start now. See them and acknowledge them as the magic they are. Ask yourself often “I wonder when the next serendipitous thing will occur in my life?”
And when it (inevitably) does happen, be grateful for it. Get excited for the next one. And watch the magic happen!
Speaking of things magically happening, if you missed my Law of Attraction call this week, here’s the call replay link!
I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
