The problem with chalking things up to coincidence

Is it a coincidence when you think about someone you haven’t seen in years only to have them call you that day?

Or maybe you thought of 99 other people that week, and by chance one of them actually called?

Coincidence is a story we tell ourselves and how we see the world. 

Sometimes collisions occur. Bad things happen to good people. It’s part of the tax we pay for operating in a disorganized world. 

The way we talk about coincidence though, you would think there is a cosmic roulette wheel spinning, just waiting for our number to be pulled…

The world operates on probabilities. And it is no coincidence that people live on miracles.
