an unplanned, fortunate discovery. I am absolutely fascinated by what it means.
It is a title of Holywood movie. And I have watched it before write this. Serendipity is a 2001 American romantic comedy directed by Peter Helsom. But, to this post I won’t tell about film story, I will only write some part in that movie that attracted me. I love the idea of a fun romantic comedy with a hint of destiny.
In that film, the actress said, “If we’re meant to meet again, we will”
Its kinda cliché right? They met while shopping for gloves in New York. They decided to test fate by splitting up and seeing if destiny brought them back together. Though a little dramatic, there is something very mysterious about the fate. Human relationship are hard. Sometimes, we always believe that sometimes things happen because they have to happen. You know what happened next? They separated.
Honestly, there’s so many people try to play with their life and believe that good luck will approach them. But, luck and serendipity are very different. Luck is good fortune. Serendipity is finding something wonderful that you didn’t know you were looking for.
Back to film, many years later, having lost each other after that night, both are engaged to be married with other people. Still, neither can shake the need to give fate one last chance to reunite them.
Life is full of surprises and little miracles. The best things happen when you least expect it. Serendipity is here for everyone. And it’s the best part of our lives! I believe sometimes we are ruining our lives when we try to apply too much logic to it. When we try to find answers for everything or solutions or a meaning behind every meeting. Or when we try to see too much into the future. We should try to let go of things more. Be patient. And keep our faith.
The best things in life have usually only little to do with logic. They just happen. By chance. By miracle. Or perhaps it’s the serendipity. Thanks God for this last few years.

“Don’t be so hard to yourself, just make it happen”
