Carpe Diem

My thoughts about fate, destiny, and the inevitable. What are they? I’m glad you asked.

I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason and is sometimes out of our control. We can try to dictate our future, but it is ultimately left to the powers of a higher being, chance, and of course fate. With that said I don’t think the signs are always apparent, but it’s definitely something you can feel when it happens. Sometimes it is so incredibly clear and the signs all point in the same direction. The question is what do you do once you realize that fate has a different plan for you than you have for yourself. Do you abort your current plan? Try to combine the two? Or ignore the obvious? Sometimes patience is the key but on other occasions you have to seize the day. If you truly believe in the inevitable or destiny or fate, you have to be prepared to succumb, right? Well, I suppose it depends on circumstances and exactly what the situation is and what is being intervened upon. Especially what involves matters of the heart. There are only a few times in life that you truly fall in love, so why not take the opportunity if it is given to you. You can’t let fear stand in your way. I think you should take the chance and see where it takes you. If you don’t, you’ll always wonder what if? I think you should take risks, learn from your mistakes, love hard, fall softly, and if the wind blows let it take you away.

“Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
