As bars and restaurants slowly reopen in London, the microcosm I've been living in slowly broadens. There's a little more life, a little more exploration and a little more...serendipity. I find nothing more invigorating than the joy that comes from randomly running into friends. It's the reason I miss big dinners, events and busy restaurants so much. It's also the reason why so many of us like to bring people together - creating pockets of serendipity is energising, fun and fulfilling. "I just can't help it", once my friend Daisy told me. "If I see an opportunity, I need to connect people".
In his new book The Serendipity Mindset, Dr Christian Busch, says something similar: "Nothing makes me happier than to see the spark when two ideas or characters unexpectedly click." Sounds familiar? Christian and I are diving deeper into the science and practice of serendipity on Tuesday! Join us for an energising conversation via Instagram Live at 6:00pm BST / 1:00pm ET @vikoushka.
