the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way

The idea of serendipity is something I always seem to think about. I am constantly connecting the dots of things in my life, so the thought of serendipity is always on my mind. To me, it's very much like the saying 'everything happens for a reason', I always sit back and think about a situation, and look back at the things that have occurred that have built up to this point. I've said 'always' three times already and it's to emphasise how much of a role this plays in my life. I love to think things are happening because they are building up to something bigger.
