    But Not In The Normally Accepted Sense

    I know this will probably sound strange but hear me out. I believe certain things are fated to happen, but not necessarily who it will happen to. I believe we all have a free will and what happens to us depends on the choices we make. Not only the choices we make, but also the...

    Semantics. I think fate is

    where you end up and destiny is how you get there. It's not like fate and free will are crossing broad swords like the immortals in Highlander exclaiming 'There can be only one', we predetermine where we finish by the decisions we make since the day we start. Everything...

    Renewed Realizations.

    Only recently it has come to my understanding that I do believe in fate more than anything, only not in the same way many people believe in it. The way many experiences I've had made me believe in fate, is that it's this strange omnipotent power, that in a way leads us to a door...

    The Road Less Traveled

    I have been a firm believer in fate for a very, very long time. I have always believed that there is a destiny assigned to each and every one of us, and that regardless of what path we embark on, we will reach what has been pre-determined for us. That there are paths before us...

    Fate In Essence

    This is an old Chinese saying that I love for its simplicity, it describes the very essence of Fate in its most truthful nature. “性格决定命运” “Our path of life is determined by our unchanging personalities.”

    What Does This Mean? Is It Fate?

    Why Fate Rebuilds Burning Bridges

    Mistakes

    Maybe mistakes are what make our fate... without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting...

    I think if it happened it was meant to happen.

    But I still think you have to create your own path . Fate is just whatever you can't control or just whatever happens down that path

    Surprisingly

    There are moments in life you cannot change, moments you simply have to accept. Sometimes you can't change fate, but you can change your attitude. Surprisingly by changing your attitude, you thus change your fate.
