Serendipity: finding the thing you didn't know you needed, at just the right time. (paraphrase of Erin McKean from 'Re-defining the Dictionary').
I'm standing on the edge of something I've never done before. Doing wrong things all over the place; some right things too. So much is out of my control, and I have to let go of things I've dreamed about for years, and let those dreams become other people's dreams too. It's hard, especially when I don't understand the mechanics of it all. Hard too, because I know this is the result of so much hard work. I don't want to screw up.
I rarely check my Pinterest inbox... there are other places I check all too often and Pinterest is for images and recipes and dreams. So finding a message from my friend, fellow author Lauren Teffeau, that she posted in February was kind of a surprise.
The fact that Lauren time-traveled so as to drop it in a box where I'd find it at just the right time? Serendipity.
The image Lauren posted is popular -- though its author isn't always attributed. But I'd never seen it before. So it's new to me. And it means a lot right now. Maybe it means something to you too, and so I'll be passing the feeling on, and the lift it gave me, right when I needed it.
Thanks, +Lauren Teffeau
, you can't know how much.
