In my lifetime, I can’t recall many movies that stayed with me for as long as Serendipity. Ever since I watched this movie, I started to trace back the days, months and years that have led me to become the person that I am. All the small, otherwise un-noticed happy accidents. Yes, all the sad days and stressful times are happy accidents that have led me to become this busy, erratic but unfailingly happy person in pursuit of my dreams.
the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
“a fortunate stroke of serendipity”
Following the signs that this life has given me gave me the comfort that I have never experienced before. The comfort of knowing that I’m meant to be where I am today and that tomorrow is full of different possibilities and I have the ability to follow and read the signs whichever way I want.
If you haven’t watched this movie, grab a wine and do it. Right now. It’s a new favourite amongst other notable titles:
- Under the Tuscan Sun
- Letters to Juliette
- P.S. I Love You
- No Reservations
- Leap Year
- Made of Honour
- Chasing Liberty
Yeah… I’m a sucker for romcoms (especially the travel and food related ones).
