Coincidence? Nope.

I don’t believe in coincidences.  Not anymore.

When I have to think about all the little steps that had to happen for me to get where I am right now?

This is just a TINY look at all the things that needed to fall into place for the here and now.

  • If I didn’t randomly decide to go to a college I knew nothing about, and only one person at.
  • If I didn’t decide to go on that one audition that got me my first job in NYC during a VACATION trip.
  • If I didn’t stay to do that show, to fall in love with the city a bit, to even CONSIDER ever living here.
  • If I didn’t take the tax firm job, just to be able to quit it at the right time.
  • If the person I had babysat for a few times hadn’t accidentally heard that I was unemployed in California, while she was looking for a nanny in New York City.
  • If my acquaintance Christina, hadn’t responded to a Facebook post, asking for church recommendations in New York City.
  • If she hadn’t briefly attended a small group, led by someone who then went to said church.
  • If I didn’t have that one job, where I met my new roommate, and found my new apartment.
  • If I didn’t finally say yes to someone continually asking me to volunteer, which then led to a full time job.
  • If I didn’t randomly make double my income, the week I had to decide to go to a conference that changed me completely.
  • If the people around me didn’t chose to take a chance on someone they barely knew.
  • If I didn’t have the most genuine and awesome friendships with the team around me, that’s leading to amazing breakthrough and both people, and musicians…

Notice that there are a lot of “I’s” in there.  But I am very aware, none of it had to do with me.

Don’t underestimate how carefully orchestrated your life is.  

Don’t take it for granted either.  

Don’t give chance that much credit.
