BUT … then someone taught me about freewill … and I remembered reading Robert Frost and I instantly understood that while we might all have some sort of providence within our grasp, it is the realization or paths we must take to get there, that often times provides us the biggest challenge.
So be it fate, be it our God given calling, or be it an instinctual yet unnamed craving to go one way versus the other, we still have to make that decision. We have to jump off destiny’s safe little ledge and make choices – that’s the wonderful, and admittedly sometimes not so wonderful part, about being human. Lucky us.
“I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.” ~ Buddha
Where will you take your destiny today? This short, but hopefully thought provoking post, inspired by the Daily Prompt: Jump. NOTE: This is a repost from earlier this year, but the title seemed apropos … or apropre, depending on which spelling you prefer ;)
