“Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.” ~ J. K. Rowling
I like this quote because, often times, we feel our destiny is decided for us. Whether I become a great author is up to the stars. Whether I get the job promotion or meet my soul mate. All of this, at times, feels out of my control. It’s whatever the universe decides. It’s a romantic…and yet a little depressing…idea, but one I find is inaccurate. Life is full of luck and chance, yes. But I believe we make our own destiny. We make choices that lead us down paths. Our life should be defined by our persistence and the choices we’ve made. Not by some foreign entity. Happy Monday!
