Do you believe in serendipity? It often seems to me that the things which occur seem to be just the right thing – even if I don’t know it at the time, I do believe that life’s twists and turns have their purpose. That the lows help us value the highs. I experience lots of moments of unexpected happiness, small snatches of joy, which catch me unaware. I try to be open to this – noticing when something is wonderful or good, even if it’s simply the pattern of a coffee spill that turned out to be quite beautiful – it’s up to me whether to decide it’s a mess to be mopped up or a chance for inspiration, (or perhaps a learning about the usefulness of coasters).
