Happiness was discussed a few days ago. Now I want to probe your brain a bit more. Let's talk about life. What is it? Is it a journey where we wonder around aimlessly predestined or is it a journey to make decisions, take control, and gain wisdom by means of our own choices?
Life I believe is a bit of both. Predestined roles in life are decided for us before we are born. Our gender, our parents, siblings, and family, our hair and eye color are all examples of destiny. We can alter our destiny but doing so often requires drastic measures such as medical professionals, foster care or adoption, hair dye or contacts. This is where I believe destiny ends and choices begin. Choices are far and wide from the career we have to our style of fashion. In the wonderful United States of America we have a lot of free will. We can choose who we marry, have help having only the amount of children we want, get an education, say and live as we pretty much please as long as no laws are broken. Answer me this then how come so many people say life is miserable and out of their control? Are they scared to take control or do they choose to use that as an excuse to wonder around in this life blaming others for their actions?

We are given one chance at this life. If we mess it up we should not blame anyone but ourselves. The choices we make and the mindset we form determines the outcome of what many call destiny. Those who believe we are predestined chooses to ignore the choices we have in life. I choose to take control, make my choices, and do the best I can with them once they are made. I may not always have the best and happiest life but I have and am in the driver seat of control.
