Is there really such a thing?
I tend to think we have a lot more control over our own happiness than just pure luck. I’ve been hearing a lot about the idea of how the things that we search out become thoughts, those thoughts become actions, and how doing those actions become who we are. So in a way we are choosing our paths that take us, well, wherever. I guess what I’m talking about is conscientiously taking the reigns in our lives and steering toward our desires and goals. Of course we will always have little surprises or detours along our way, but knowing that we can try and prepare for those too the best we can.
I used to rely on the idea of luck, hope and just wishing really hard for something. But actually working towards those things seems to bring much more success. I am sure I’m late to the party on figuring this one out, but at least it’s all starting to make sense to me now. But as for my feelings on fate? . . . now that’s another story!
