Time shows us that good things can happen at any moment and that life is full of beautiful coincidences that present themselves to dye our world a different color. Sometimes things come when we least expect them or when we need them the most.

So if things are going well, enjoy it, because it won’t last forever. And if things are going bad, don’t worry, because that won’t last forever either. Don’t try to calculate everything, because life doesn’t follow the course of our plans; but rather it’s the fabric woven together by hundreds of coincidences.

The best things in life are not planned, they just happen

Now and then, we stumble upon beautiful coincidences that we can only appreciate when we remove the pressure of expectations and the need to obtain immediate satisfaction and results through our own efforts.

The blows that destiny hits us with can be strong or not, but clearly we have to give ourselves permission to enjoy the unexpected fortune of finding love, a new work opportunity, or sudden life improvements.

The things that come from the coincidences in our lives are not less valid than anything else. In fact, many things that we tend to call “luck”or “destiny” are in some way a consequence of our efforts and actions.

Just because we call them “coincidences” doesn’t mean we have to distrust them, much less criticize them. As we’ve said, it’s much healthier to accept life the way it is without questioning and analyzing everything completely. Just live.

What has to be will be, on its own time, because destiny is uncertain, and sometimes the winds simply don’t blow in our favor, and our sails are difficult to raise, despite our persistence.

Respecting your own rhythms and those of other people

We should respect our own rhythms and those of other people so we can make things simpler. With your feet on the ground, you can’t force your heart to stop beating, because if you do, that’s psychological suicide.

It’s important to breathe to the sound of your own heartbeat and refrain from running. We all know that when we rush and breathe too rapidly, we feel dizzy, and we might even feel like we’re drowning.

Breathing too rapidly or too slowly, or simply not breathing in the right way, exhausts us and lowers our quality of life. You don’t need proof to believe in the accuracy of coincidence.

So the question we have to ask ourselves is “Why do I breathe so rapidly?” Once we’ve reflected on this, we’ll be ready to know what we have to do to slow down our rhythm.

There’s no greater success than taking advantage of coincidences

You should always invite yourself to learn more about coincidences, about what happens around you and about what you contribute. There is no need to feel like everything is so urgent. Don’t kill yourself trying to get everything you think you want.

Taking our time and being patient does not mean that we’re not taking advantage of life or putting forth effort. Always remember that if something doesn’t give you what you want, it will teach you what you need to know.

Value every instant, because you won’t get it back. So think of a motto for your life; something that makes you accept and feel like when you least expect it, everything will go your way.

And, as the great García Márquez said, don’t ever get tired of searching for a great “maybe” that’s full of chances.
