noun \ˌser-ən-ˈdi-pə-tē\
: luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for

I have always questioned the reasoning for my mom’s death. Is there a reason she died? How does this play into fate and destiny and a higher power’s plan? Or did she die just because she died? It seems to be quite the extreme for her to die as she did, just because it somehow will play into my life’s plan from the universe. It actually seems quite egotistical to assume so.

So now I am more of the mindset that she just died. No reason. No deeper meaning. She just died. Sh*tty things happened. And that’s it. But you must learn and grow from it.

And then my friend urged me to watch Serendipity. And I did and I bawled almost the entire movie. I find it a very romantic idea that fate and destiny are connected to love, but are they connected to death as well?
