I don’t believe in fate.
I believe that the choices we make each day determine where we end up. That the answers to each question are not preset, but that the possibilities are endless. I believe that the choices I have made have led me here and all I can do is own this place. Not every choice is good, some are questionable, some hurtful, some immature, some wise. But I no longer sit up late at night questioning my decisions, I have made peace with them. I own this place.
Life is about choices, not destiny. I have not ended up here because I was meant to be here, I am here because I have chosen to be here. No choice is the wrong choice when each choice opens up opportunities that might not otherwise be present. I have been blessed with opportunities, friendships, and experiences based on the daily decisions I make and I believe that at the end of this long life I will not regret opening any of the doors that I have passed through. Where I end up is where I will have chosen to be.
