DAILY PROMPT: QUE SERA SERA
Do you believe in fate or do you believe you can control your own destiny?
A bit of both, I think.
I don’t for a minute imagine that fate/the universe/god or other gives a good goddamn what I have for breakfast, even if I’m about to ingest food poisoning. (If God’s eye is on the sparrow, He’s obviously too busy marshalling the worms…although hang on, doesn’t He have His eye on them as well? Who’d be God, for goodness sake!) But I do believe we all arrive here with lessons to learn, and if we open our minds to it, the universe is likely to nudge us in the right direction.
What we think we want, I’ve found, isn’t always what we need. Hard to take at the time, but it’s surprising how often crushing disappointment leads to something better.
I’ve also decided that if fate has pre-ordained my ultimate destiny, it’s not about to let me in on the secret anytime soon. Fine by me. If I knew I was due to die tomorrow, I’d be too busy sorting out the paperwork to enjoy to today.
