Finding something good without looking for it.
Today’s featured couple, Martin and Takyrica Kokoszka, experienced serendipity when they met one another.
Takyrica says, “We met on vacation in Las Vegas at a nightclub (the unlikely place to find true love!). Dated long distance for a year and then he moved to Chicago, and we got married shortly after.”
Five years and three children later, Martin and Takyrica are still in love and still going strong.
There’s something to be said for serendipity, wouldn’t you agree?

TheSwirlWorld JeffSt Well, the serendipity is the pre-beginning, it takes work to start the relationship once you meet.
JeffSt Hmmm . . . . I understand what you’re saying, but for me (and this couple) “letting things happen” is not quite how serendipity works. I see it as recognizing an opportunity when it’s presented to you, even though you weren’t looking for an opportunity. You’re doing your thing, actively involved in your life, when something (or in this couple’s case) someone, comes along. You see him/her, recognize the potential and possibilities,and go for it. The serendipity aspect is merely the beginning; maintaining the relationship itself is where the work comes in. JMO
Numerous instances in my life, in fact just about everything good has happened when i wasn’t looking for it. But one exception is relationships. One doesn’t just happen, you have to work for it. My luck in that regard hasn’t been great, but letting things just happen in this regard seems to have ensured that nothing happens.
