Life happens organically #FridayReflections

Serendipity has played an important part in my life . I am convinced that most things happen in life by chance rather than design. Because if it is by design, I am definitely not the designer!

Almost everything in my life happened serendipitously : including my birth. Not only was I unplanned but even my actual birth was unexpected. My mother tells me I was born after a heavy tea of batata wada followed by a bumpy rickshaw ride home !

And this was just the beginning.

Thereafter a series of events led me to where I am. My choice of friends for example . I never set out seeking them but friendships just blossomed in the strangest of ways . Today I consider myself blessed with the number of people I know .

And what about my own “career choices” ?Though I was always fond of reading and writing I had never planned on becoming a writer . But after trying my hand at several things , writing seems to be the most enduring.

I discovered my talent for cooking purely accidentally too. So I can go on and on about how my life just happened almost organically. The most recent of these being my inspiration for my great Indian Novel that I will be writing this whole month as part of the NaNoWriMo challenge.

Yes serendipity has played an important part in my life .

And because of the uncertainty, I feel is is all the more enriched. Each day is like a treasure hunt where things unfold themselves magically.

I wonder what today will bring.

  1. I am so glad that serendipity brought you into the world and led you to writing. That’s wonderful. I too, am participating in NaNoWriMo. It’s quite the challenge! I’m sure you’ll smash it. Good luck!
