A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.
– Jean de La Fontaine
What is it about the idea of destiny? If your destiny is already written then how do so many of us miss the path? Do we just ignore the signs, push off that feeling in our spirits and choose to live our lives the way we want to live too? What about those of us who seem to be fulfilling their destiny but on the inside they are sad and unfulfilled are they really living their destiny?
I most likely will never know the answer to any of these questions. I suppose everybody’s opinion about destiny is different. However when I heard this quote it really made me think about the choices that I’m making in my life and if they are indeed the road to my “destiny”. Many of the experiences that I’ve been through leads me to believe that I have taken a road or two to avoid my destiny, not on purpose, but still a detour.
This quote has weighed heavily on my heart for a few days and now I must let it go. I must trust that I am doing everything in my power to take the right path at this point in my life. Or at least I am trying too. I will go on believing that my life has already been written and no matter what choices I make whether they right or wrong I will eventually meet my fate because it has already been decided for me. Life is such a mystery and I can’t spend too many of my days trying to figure it out because if I did then I would be wasting precious time when I could be doing something more productive. So on that note – I’m done.
