Serendipity: The Good and the Bad of It

I have realized that friendship builds a strong feeling of belongingness in meeting by chance especially in social media and online writing. I have, however, regretted that I lost "Serendipity".

I remember I have just joined to a site with a good writing job opportunity and I have no one to cling into. I am completely stranger. Exploring the site is usual a newcomer will be doing. And that is what I am doing, browsing there, and there, and there. Until I am a bit familiar with the system.

Five members have popped along the way, giving me a strong feeling of belongingness. They make a friend request in which I never give a second thought for I am afraid I would be losing them and I have no one to be with in my writing odyssey to the said site.

Being Grateful

I give them each one a brief statement of gratefulness for their genuine gesture of friendliness. Those friendly members have made me at home there. Their initiative has put me to strengthen my membership and my belongingness to the site. I couldn’t express my feeling of gratefulness to these friendly gals. Anyway, the only consolation I may give them is to appreciate their friendly sense, their notion of making me feel really at home there.

I consider that incident as a pleasant surprise which gives me the feeling of happiness, the feelings of a part and parcel of the group of responsive, effective writers for that matter. I owe everything to them for making me the real me. I know that I could value my being, my existence as a man of what I am because of those who regard me as their friend.

I know we are all strangers. We are all unaware of what is ahead for us. We are all unaware that something good, something wonderful would happen in the future. And that is the very principles of serendipity. Dictionary defines it as "the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way." Those happenings are good, wonderful surprises in the future if we do work for them.

Sad to note, however, that site was totally suspended. And I lost my page, "Serendipity". Anyway, thankful for those fellow members of the site for I have a good virtual friendship with them.
