Aug. 31, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Monday, Aug. 31, 2015

Today’s thought from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Be aware of wonder.
 — Robert Fulghum

We have days when we experience the small coincidences in life – our car breaks down and we run into an old friend at the service station; we’re thinking about someone and she calls just because we’ve been on her mind; we ask ourselves a question and the answer appears on the side of a bus or out of the mouth of a stranger at the bus stop. These serendipitous events usually leave us with at least a bit of awe.

The more serendipity we have in our life, the more spiritually connected we are. We’re tuned in, attentive, aware, and detached. We’re getting responses to questions and meeting the people we need to be with at just the right moments. We couldn’t have planned it better. We couldn’t have planned it at all.

Serendipity is a sign that we’re letting the universe organize the events that lead to answered questions and fulfilled dreams. Life becomes a process of unraveling a mystery.

Today I will recognize the serendipity in the day’s events.
