Do you believe in fate or do you believe you can control your own destiny.
I am not sure what I believe in, in fate or I can control my own destiny. The song “Que Sera Sera “, is a favorite song of mine. I heard it a long time ago.I didn’t really think about the lyrics,then or even now.
Today’s prompt makes me think do I believe in fate or do I believe in controlling my own destiny. I believe in both.
My fate exposed me to various things I could do with my life, study or stop studying. I controlled my destiny by choosing the former. I kept going until I felt my brothers have contributed towards my studies long enough,I should see if I can get some help in way of a scholarship to study further. Fate helped me to get what I wanted and I controlled my destiny by making sure I was successful each time.
I felt I had studied enough it was time for me to look for a job. I got the first one I applied for,eleven months later I made up my mind to leave the job and look for another.My second job proved too taxing for my health and well-being , I quit that one for good.
I always knew I was qualified enough to get a teaching job in the city,I was not disappointed.
Marriage changed the picture, I relied on fate solely,wherever my husband found work I’d have to go there,which is what I did. There was no room for controlling my destiny. So like Doris Day I thought “whatever will be, will be.”
Yes I have children,they don’t ask me, “will I be handsome will I be rich?” If they did I’d only say whatever will be,will be.”You will be what you want to be.
Once again I have decided to control my destiny by registering for on-line courses, it was something I had very little knowledge of, here I am once again controlling my destiny by continuing with the courses.
