Focus on Coincidences

In my upcoming book, I recount several remarkable coincidences which occurred during the writing process. I won't divulge details here, so if you're intrigued, you'll just have to wait for the book to be published!


However, as these events are related to my grandfather, I instantly wondered what he would make of them. He passed in 1996 so I couldn't ask him. Then I remembered he'd sent me a letter about this very topic while I was at university. Is that also a coincidence? Perhaps.

We tend to react at the astonishing fact of a ‘coincidence’. But surely what would be really remarkable would be if – considering the millions and millions of possible combinations of events – if there were NEVER any such coincidences.



So, there it is! Coincidences do occur and since we're all inextricably connected, I shouldn't really be too surprised when they do happen. Yet, I still find myself marvelling when the universe works in such mysterious ways.


What role do coincidences play in your life? Do you see them as mere chance occurrences or something more meaningful?


Focus on Coincidences! Focus on WHY!
