Coincidence or Not? 🤔

In recent days many unexpected things occurred that were pleasant surprises. Several people have said, “Well, isn’t that a coincidence?” As I have gotten older, I have pondered on that common catchphrase and thought of it a little differently.

So, a coincidence is an occasion when two or more similar things happen simultaneously, especially in a way that is unlikely and surprising. Some people may call it confirmation, luck, or synchronicity. For me, such occurrences are a manifestation of a spiritual and physical alignment when such unexpected events cross paths or meet at a juncture. Some may say the stars or the universe are aligning, and perhaps they are. For me, I call it Divine Intervention.

Yet, I believe the inevitable will be what it will be, whether you plan for it or not. The pleasant surprises are always comforting and encouraging, hitting you with a burst of energy. Unpleasant crossover occurrences may throw you for a loop, sucker-punch you, and leave us hitting the replay buttons in our mind, evaluating and wondering why. Sometimes that seemingly “bad” thing could be a good thing. It could make room for the better, but you may have to wait for it. We set a lot of things in motion, but when such coincidences occur, they could be signs for improvement we can’t ignore.
