Do you believe in Serendipity?
Serendipity is described as the occurrence of good or beneficial events by chance in a happy or amusing way. People might say that it's the same as luck but it has a big difference because luck can go both ways there's good luck and there's bad luck, while serendipity is always on the happy and beautiful side.

Do I believe in serendipity? I would say yes I do believe and serendipity and I think there are times that serendipity happened to me. Life is very unpredictable and some would say that life is hard and unforgiving but there are still times that we would experience joy or happiness even in unexpected ways or events.

I think serendipity happens to everyone. Is there a single person on Earth who experiences bad luck everytime and all his life? I think, there's no one. There would always be one point in our lives that a thing happens in the way we like

Yes it does happen to everyone and it always unexpected. No body wouldn't appreciate the beautiful side of nature if mother luck smiles on one.

I think there are people who always experience bad luck. Such people often do not see anything good in their lives. It is misfortune all the time

There are instances that happens that would make you think that I'm so lucky this and that happened to me thus I do believe in serendipity. It makes you hopeful of more good things to come.

Luck or serendipity is always there in life. It is something like destiny. You are just in good luck.

I guess, everyone of us has experienced this. There may be bad times in our lives, but you cannot deny that there are things that happen in the most favorable way possible.

I think if one realizes that things like that happen . Then chances of that thing happening again increases. So depending on how the people see it. I'd say that serendipity is just way of life in our approach. And we have to understand that part in that case if we are to experience the phenomenon.

I have experienced serendipity many times. Something good happens to me everytime I do not expect anything and when I am in hopeless situations. I feel God is watching all of us from above and we are due for good if we have done good things in the past.

Yea, we definitely get our good deeds used to beautify our souls that's why we should always do good irrespective of anything we maybe faced in the future or at present. Goodness will always find out out if we deserve it.

I guess, it happens to everyone at some point of their lives. It's just that, others don't see it as it should be.

" I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all." Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV

I believe this verse says it all. I believe in serendipity because the Bible says it so. As Proverbs 16:33 says, “We may throw the dice, but the LORD determines how they fall” (New Living Translation).

Of course serendipity exist. I think we all are have experience it. I have experience it and I'm thankful to Him because I always got into good situation in the end no matter hard the road is for me. The Lord is always there to guide and help us when we are in difficult situation.

The Lord is indeed always good and amazing. He prepares for us the best things. He is the one that knows what is best for us and everything that happens to us happens for a reason. I believe that serendipity is His divine appointment created for us alone.

God is ever faithful to those that seek him diligently. I know what we never expected always happens. How else Will we adore him if we don't have beautiful things from him.

Everyone experienced it. Some are just blind to see and realize that it's serendipity. Some people are too negative to see the slightest good thing that happens to them.

I believe being optimistic or pessimistic of a person has something to do with his belief in serendipity. As other say, optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty while the pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. If a person believe in God and believe that God is with him in this journey of life, he will always see the miracle in everything.

Those who do not believe that He exist would never grateful for the blessings they have received.

I’ve heard the word used before but I never really knew what it meant - it’s quite charming isn’t it! I love the concept and I absolutely believe that serendipity exists.

I think it exists. I'm not saying this because I'm a bursting ball of happiness and positivity. I'm saying this because it does happen. I think we find this in everyday life and I don't mean anything material. Just having someone special do something for you that caught you off guard could be one. It's there and it exists. It's one of the things that make life beautiful.

For it to happen, you have to believe. This is what my grandmother used to say. Believe and you will see.

Yes. I do believe in serendipity. Some of the most beautiful things happen in your life without you looking for it. It just comes and boom! It takes you by a surprise and all the previous experiences pale into comparison. I also believe that this is faith and a divine appointment by God.

There's actually a movie titled SERENDIPITY. It stars Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack, and the flow of the film is exactly what the word means. Kate believes in serendipity, and John doesn't.

I enjoyed watching that movie. It's one of my favorite films. John Cusack was great in it.

Yes I do believe in serendipity. It is quite easy for me to see the most simple beauty out of an object, painting or a person. It's really fun and exciting to see people have such great energy and compassion. It really is great and good to feel.

I think it;s just my state of mind that things it may or may not exist in all of us. And things can be a bit different for us to understand on that note. I'd say that serendipity can be pretty harder to understand that part as well.

Serendipity happens to everyone because when nature want to bless, it doesn't select and doesn't only blessed those that are good. He decorate everyone soul accordingly and give us a beautiful side of us.

I do believe in Serendipity, it's when everything seems to go right, when actions made produces good and happy results and it opens doors to more happy events. It's when one good event becomes a streak or a chain of unexpected happy events and eventualities.

Yeah, I believe in serendipity. In a way, it is related to the law of attraction in where you feed yourself with what you want to happen. Like thinking optimistically and just being grateful will lead you to have fortunate and lifting situations in your life. Of course, let's not forget that we are also guided by the One and only and would not leave us alone. The bad times are after all also necessary to help us become stronger.

I couldn't agree more. We need to experience hardships in life for us to grow and learn. People who have it easy in life are lucky, but I wouldn't hire them as managers if I have a company. I want people for the position to have a roster of business experiences, so they'll know what's the best thing to do if ever a crisis happens.

Do you believe in serendifity: Yes I do believe in it and i think all of us dode experienced it already in different kind of situation. I experience it before when i still searching for a job I supposedly going to the right side part of the building to have an interview but I mistaken take the left one side and they are hiring too, i don't really have an Idea that I take a wrong company untill I been interviewed and get hired even I am not prepared and don't have any idea about their company.

My answer to that question is yes. I believe that serendipity is true. I think we all that but not all the time comes that way. It's just depends on us how we can run our life being an optimistic and grateful even in the down times. Sometimes even if things fall into wrong place, there's always been a good side for that which makes you more luckier and happier as you fall into that path without any intention.

I don't believe in it because I think things happen to people because of reason. What we experience in life, good or bad, is a result of everything you say or do.

Well, sometimes, I do believe in it but I also believe that things will always happen in his plans. I, sometimes, feel scared of it because I tend to think that after all those good things, there might be a bad news or happening that might be coming to me. I always think that in every happy situation, there will always be a negative side.

Yes I do believe in serendipity sometimes you think that what happened to you is a misfortune but you don't even know that as that door closes many door opens too, what I mean by that is if you lost some opportunities there are way more opportunities that will present itself to you as long as you keep striving in life and you never give up on whatever it is you love doing. I also think that sometimes you can just get lucky at life, life is unpredictable and it's not all about bad things, it can be unpredictable in a good manner too.

I can’t really say that I believe in the idea of good things happening simply as a result of good fortune. As the old saying goes, “fortune favors the bold.” If you just sit around not doing anything, I don’t think you can really expect anything serendipitous to happen to you. Good fortune is like a flame; it needs a spark to get it going. If you’re out there doing good things and asking the universe for good fortune, that is when good things are going to come your way.

I believe that we create our own good fortune, and that it doesn’t happen simply by chance.

Very well said, we make our own luck and we make our own opportunities. It is easy to chalk something up as serendipitous but when you really analyze it, it is usually because of deeds that you have done before that caused this, its a consequence or an end result or a reaction of the world to what you put out. The cynic in me is out of the bag again or maybe I have just become a realist.

Yeah, I believe in it. I wouldn't be surprised if others believe in it as well. To begin with, it's really identical to luck in some way, but it's like a random good event. To be honest, if you're an open minded person, who tries to maintain his happiness, then you'd notice how serendipity occurs a lot more often. Just gotta be more positive.

I believe in life and serendipity is the beauty of life. Just as bad things happen at unexpected moments so does serendipity. You discover the beauty of life when you least expect it. Some people call it magic, some call it luck, some call it happenstance but to me that is a part of life. The beautiful part of life.

I think that serendipity is our breather. When everything in life seems to screw us all the time, God sends down blessing to make us believe again, that there is happiness in this world. I believe that serendipity is a gift to all of us, and every does have it, if they do accept it.

Yes i do believe in Serendipity. We all experience this phenomenon of good luck from time to time in our life. I do believe that Serendipity brings about a lot of hope in our life. Generally when you keep a positive and optimistic approach in your life, it will definitely attract more positivity and you are more likely to experience the feeling of Serendipity.

Yes for me. Its always nice to belive that something good will come your way. That you are destined to be in that moment in this vast universe. It makes you feel alive even if you dont have control over what is happening.

Before life broke me and made me jaded I would have said yes but now I think no. I am saying no but I am still trying to hold on to that part of me that would have said yes, it is hard to always see the beauty in things that happen but I think i will continue to try. I am just not in that state of mind as of this moment in my life.

I think serendipity does exist. In a world where everything is uncertain, except change, we'll never know if such occurrences is a serendipity. Some things in our life happen without us planning it. We experience things explainable and unpredictable. The good thing about serendipity though is that it is always positive, who would have to complain about it?
