 ==== ====Folklore, Fairy Tales, Myths And Legends From Around The Worldhttp://db5dfavfgnd10w14j--8pa-c6v.hop.clickbank.net/  ==== ====I don't know about you, but as I take stock of my life and the things I have being through, I wishthings should have been rosy and cozy. "Why can't lady luck smile at me," I wondered. "Why can'tthe fairies of Serendip show up with their encouraging words and magic wand to end all myproblems?" Yes, life is full of paradox. At a distance, it is not a bed of roses. However, on close observation,life is like a rose--rich in color contrast, harmony, beauty, ironies, twists and turns. (See my article,the Roses Will Bloom Again). Because suffering introduces a man to himself and creates a philosopher out of the human spirit, Ican't help but think about two words: Luck and Serendipity.

However, luck plays a role in the affairs of men. And that my destiny is shaped by mydecisions based on my mental programming. On the other hand, Serendipity is a faculty while Serendip (the root word) is a place. Serendipity isdefined as the faculty of making fortunate and unexpected discoveries by accident. Like the caveman throwing stones together and discovering the spark of fire. Serendip is best illustrated withthe folklore of the fairies of a town called Serendip. Before the middle ages when serfs ruled Europe, there was a farmer who lived in a ranch with hisfamily. One day, his son was riding one of the farmer's horses and fell off the horse and broke hisleg. The horse ran away. The farmer was angry and devastated for the son's injury and the loss of his horse. While broodingover his agony, the three Fairies of Serendip appeared and told the farmer that something goodwill come out of his misfortune. The farmer could not believe it and dismissed the talk as one of
