How often do you find delight in the unexpected? Can you find excitement and joy in your day? These days were so busy running around and going from one activity to the next that we don’t stop to appreciate what’s right in front of us. When may even miss a big opportunity that’s right in front of us.
In one day last weekend, I had three amazing moments of serendipity in a 24 hour period. First, I opened the door to coach a salesman on my street while I was tending to my garden. Second, I learned how to roast coffee since I was inquisitive to learn what a gentleman was doing with a cool retrostyle machine. And, third, I reached out to a gentleman working in a coffee shop to ask about his productivity journal. What does this all have in common?
The serendipity occurred for several reasons. First, I showed up and was curious why the salesman was not excited about his current roofing job. This lead to real authentic, heart-to-heart talk that even ended with a hug. Second, I was open to learn and be interested in understanding the procedure how to roast coffee. This in turn made the coffee roaster feel valued in sharing his expertise. And, I learned that roasting coffee is similar to popping popcorn kernels. Third, with more curiosity, I met someone who deeply shared how we lived life and want to share these experiences with others. All of these moments turned into true heart to heart connections, where we laughed and understood the other person. And, we didn’t even know each other to start. My day was brighter because I was open to these experiences and wanted to learn more.
Where in your life can you be more curious, more open to another’s perspectives? Do you show up on a daily basis ready to serve the world?
If an amazing opportunity was dropped in your lap, would you be able to respond appropriately? Or, would you say, I already have too much on my plate, I can’t do anything else right now.
Most of all, where can you find serendipity today?
