Moments of Fate


I’m going to take creative license and combine today’s and yesterday’s daily prompts.  Mostly, because I don’t have a whole lot to say about the matter of Fate.

I’m not sure which I believe and to be honest, I don’t really care either way.  It’s a lot like I mentioned in my chapter series about dying.  Why waste time stressing over things you cannot control?  I think the whole lot of us tries to control our own destinies to varying degrees, regardless if it’s futile or not.  That’s just human nature.  We’re tenacious that way.  We want to believe that we can make things happen, even if the romantic in us holds onto some shred of hope that Fate will intervene to see us through to happier times.  We’re simply a complex, complicated and often confused species with a whole lot of free will that allows us to change our minds as frequently as it suits us – and that’s okay.  Whatever makes us happy, which should be the main goal in everyone’s life, anyway.  I believe everything happens for a reason, but whether that’s fate or destiny, I don’t need to know bad enough to over-analyze it.

Now… moving on to yesterday’s prompt…


Three moments to remember – I just have to say, I’m certainly glad I only have 2 kids, otherwise Daily, you’d be in a heap of trouble.  Fortunately for me, this is easy:

1. My oldest son was born.

2. My youngest son was born.

3. I opened an e-mail from Red Sage Publishing saying that they wanted to publish my book.

I can’t think of anything more memorable than these events, even if other moments have played a significant role in my life, these three definitely take the proverbial cake.  😉

  4. And on the subject of ‘fate’ I totally agree. Even if one could fathom it out there wouldn’t be much point as what is about to happen will happen anyway!
