Do you believe in coincidence?
Coincidence: a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.
Remarkable? As in luck? Are serendipitous collisions without any plan or design? Is it truly random?
Personally, I know I’ve always associated coincidence with magic, and with miracles. And I’ve believed in these things as long as I can remember. I also used to think of them as separate from myself – things that happened to other people, or in stories. I never noticed them happening to me.
But now I realize that magic and miracles have been woven into the fabric of my life all along. And most often, they take the form of people. When I think of the chains of events that led to many of my most dear creative relationships (both personal and professional), I can’t believe it’s anything other than magic that allowed our paths to coincide.
Connection is a feeling – you ‘know it’ when you feel it.
I have often found myself meeting people (often in unexpected ways), experiencing connection with them, and investing in a relationship even when the logical reason for it is not yet clear.
Time and time again, as if by magic, I find that after years of being on separate paths our worlds collide and we find ourselves in connection again, this time to create something new together. Never something we could have imagined when we first met!
Our time on this earth is so limited, and our rational minds fight hard to protect our most precious resource. But I’ve learned to trust my intuition when it signals a strong connection. It is through these relationships that I’m able to move into greater and greater alignment with my personal mission to inspire, create, and connect.
If you don’t understand now, chances are things will become clear later
For me, Glowe Connective is the culmination of people, decisions, feelings, inspiration, and much more, collected throughout my life. It’s all coming together, and it’s clear that what we’ll bring into existence is bigger than any of us can imagine.
My belief is that coincidence is a critical component in our lives. It’s only in hindsight that the “causal connection” is established, that we realize how truly remarkable the concurrence has turned out to be. It’s not something we can wrap our logical brains around “in the now,” so all we can do is lean into the magic.
