Serendipity is one of my favorite things in life. I just received a telephone call from a Twitter friend, sharing how one of my tweets last week made her think bigger. With one little generic tweet, something triggered her to take action, resulting in a positive difference in her business. How cool is that!

TwitterJust a few days ago I was on the telephone with my daughter asking for her help in finding someone who knows about the science of the brain. I’m writing a book and want to include information from a scientific point of view, but I don’t study brain science. My daughter gave me some suggestions and told me she’d think about other options.

As I hung up the telephone I glanced at my computer screen, which was open to Seemic Desktop displaying my tweet stream from Twitter. I noticed a friend of mine, @ThomasHensel, who had just retweeted a woman named Ellen, (@EllenfWeber) who- you guessed it- has studied brain science for more than 30 years. A tweet led to a conversation, which led to email and to a 2-hour interview with Ellen. She’s actually being featured here on in the coming weeks!

I couldn’t have found her if I’d gone searching for her, yet here she was, just waiting for me to tweet her, just as my tweet was waiting for my friend when she needed it. Serendipity at its finest. I love the ease with which we can be there for one another- even sometimes in an unconscious way.

The next time you’re stuck, look at your tweet stream. My guess is that some random tweet will jog something in your mind, or open a door for you to walk through. If you’re not following me on Twitter, please come follow @inspiremetoday. I’ll automatically follow you back and we can inspire one another. Thanks to all of you who are a part of my Twitter family and our community. I’m so grateful for you in my life!

Thanks, love and hugs,
