I’ve always been a big fan of coincidences. And while I often have to double-check my spelling of the actual word, I don’t doubt that they are an exciting part of our existence here on earth. I’ve been fortunate enough to have quite a few happen to me and I relish them. The bonus of being aware of these usual occurrences is getting to turn around and tell people about them. Coincidences make great stories. What’s even more interesting is how your audience perceives them. There are the folks that will scientifically break down the event and “reason” it into just another ho-hum event, and then there are the people who’s eyes get wide and exclaim “wow that’s crazy”. I have to say I’m partial to the latter. With this type of reaction you get to live the mystery of it all over again. For me, life is more interesting when there’s the possibility that magic can happen at any time. Though I have no concrete evidence that a coincidence is anything more than just a word, I like to believe that is a little sign from the universe. A reminder that I’m in the right place at the right time and my gift for being open to the unpredictable is experiencing something unexplainably special. I was fortunate enough to hear an episode on This American Life that deals with just this topic. If you get the chance I highly recommend checking out the link, it’s a fascinating listen. If you can only listen to one story, listen to the second story in ActTwo…it’s CRAZY. If this coincidence doesn’t make you say “Holy Moly!” I don’t know what will. If you have any cool coincidences to share, I’d love to hear them. I promise to be the one that exclaims “wow”.
