Serendipity – #JusJoJan 2019 Jot #20


I’ve written about serendipity a couple of times on this blog already. The last two times I wrote about phenomenal events. We all have those serendipitous moments occasionally. Once in a while they’re life-changing, but mostly they’re the little things that come to us. Unexpected good things.

Sometimes, it seems, the universe gives us things we don’t even know that we need. Like the money I received from the government a week before I dropped my laptop. It turned out to be the exact amount my new laptop cost. Yes, I could have used that money to pay for the things I’d already spent it on, but the situation also could have been worse.

And sometimes the motes of serendipity appear as things seemingly sent just to put a smile on our faces. A song that comes on the radio that lifts us when we’re down, or items we give significance to as a sign of hope.

Serendipity can be mind-blowing.

Or it can just help us get through the day.

  1. That is a cool happening. So glad you weren’t hurt. Glad it was only the laptop and conveniently already paid for. So an accidental serendip. Is there a word that is the opposite of serendipity? Oh, wait. Maybe I don’t want to know.


  2. I once won lotto money enough to cover my ER bill. Exciting unforgettable times.

  4. If we can keep the ins and outs on an even keel, that’s something!


  5. Sometimes you just need something to get you thru the day…

  6. I like the approach you took. Mind blowing or to get us through the day. Ain’t life grand? Seriously. Not an ounce of sarcasm from me this time.


  7. “Unexpected good things” are the best!
