Have you ever wondered why we are who we are and what control we really have over our lives? Recently I have been doing just that.
Some people believe that everything happens for a reason and they chose to live their lives by this mantra believing there is some big reason why a certain event in their life occurred. I can’t justify this. To me, that is like saying our lives are already set out for us and we are just a small part of a big story.
There are a lot of reasons why we are who we are but to say something was ‘meant to be’ seems ineffable. We can’t choose the era which we are born into, our families, or where we are brought up. These things are not optional but do these things define who we are?
I like to think that it is our choices that define us more than our abilities or where we come from. And that we do have a choice in who we are and what we do with our lives. We are all responsible for our own actions but not necessarily everything that happens in our lives. We meet people. Stuff Happens.
Maybe we just need one of these to get on with our day….
