    What Else Could It Be?

    I've always been a strong believer of fate since I can remember. My mum basically raised me on the saying "If it's meant to be, it's meant to be". I believe that everyone has an important role in life, that effects some persons life choices and behaviour in some way, whether...

    Never Believed In Fate....till Now

    Years ago, eleven to be exact, I was dating a guy I was in love with. I knew it was not right though. He cheated, he lied, and he had several demons to overcome, but there was something about him that made me feel complete. When we decided to amiccably call it quits he told me...

    Fate Vs Free Will

    I believe that there is both free will and fate; how can that be, well I believe we are all destined on a certain path, but it is our free will which we use to react to each experience, if we react negatively then we are led down one path, if we act positively then we are...

    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...

    Goodbye

    If fate caused our paths to cross I hope we enriched each others lives, even for such a short time as we became suspended in time.

    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...

    Events

    When reflecting upon my life, it seems like everything that has occurred- the good, the bad, the ugly- has all happened for a reason. It is larger than I can respectfully pay adequate service to in words. I mean it.

    My whole life I've always sincerely enjoyed the

    idea that everything I'll ever do in my life is supposed to happen. Fate is strange and weird and scary and unknown that it just peaks my interests to the fullest.

    Nothing in life happens by chance. Every person we encounter has some effect on our lives. Every experience we have changes us in one way or another. A look, a smile, a word can change the way we look at life. Just as the person next to you impacts your life, you impact others in...

    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...

    and everyone else's. I believe we have the right to choose our own fate. And if I die, I'll die knowing I did everything I could just to stop this madness.

    I Believe In Fate

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Two years ago I fell in love with a great man.

    And I was torn between following a dream far away from home and him. And to help me decide, he broke up with me and told me I'd have to follow my dreams and that he hoped I'd find him after. Long distance relationships can work, but it wasn't fair for either of us with the 8,600...
