I get a little tired of people telling me things like “I guess it’s just not meant to be” or “It will happen when the time is right” or “it’s not your destiny”
I just cannot wrap my head around that. I think that if I had chosen to go left at that fork in the road instead of right, my life would be different. I DO believe in a Higher Power. But I also think we have Free Will to make our own choices. I think that there are times when we are guided, but predetermined? I dunno.
Do you believe in fate? Do you think our lives are all planned out? Predestined???

When I moved to Texas from Oregon, it was a hardest and most frightening decision I ever made in my life. At 50-something years old, I was starting my life over again from scratch. All I had that was guaranteed was a bed to sleep in at my brother’s house and faith. Faith that I was making the right decision.
I’ve told a lot of people since I moved to Texas that “I’m meant to be here.” My life has improved tremendously since my move from Oregon. But it does make me wonder…

Yesterday’s post was pretty negative and I’m sorry about that. All is well my peeps, no worries.
Sometimes, the realization that WE choose our own destiny is a bit much to take. Everything in our life, we are responsible for and have either created it or allowed it to happen.
The day that I realized THAT, was quite profound for me. You have to remember that I didn’t have a brain cell in my head until I was in my 30’s. (none worth mentioning anyway) And the realization that I had the power to CHOOSE how I lived my life was like a slap in the face.
Crap! You mean I have to be an adult and accept responsibility for my own life? Well, shit!
Me! My choice! Not fate. Not some Divine Force, was pushing me along life’s path to a specific conclusion. I choose if I take the left fork or the right one.
I do believe in a Higher Power. But I believe that WE have the choice in this life to decide our path. Hopefully, whatever Higher Power there may be is there to guide us and give us strength. Our future is not preordained. At least I don’t believe it is.
My life is a good one. I have an abundance of Blessings that I give thanks for. My self-chosen path has brought me to this point in my life. What to do with tomorrow? We will see, my pretties. We will see. 🙂
The Daffy Duck cartoon? I just happen to have a soft spot for the hot head (I can relate) and wanted a reason to use this particular cartoon.
