Do you believe in fate?

Insert irrelevant selfie here

I think I have mentioned before that I am a firm believer in things happening for a reason, be that meeting people, events changing your perspective and even which book you pick up next.

So I guess you could say I believe in fate.

I honestly think that you are always where you are meant to be at any given time. You can look at this two ways both literally so you are physcially present where you are meant to be or not so literally and that your thoughts, feelings and mental state are what they should be right now for you. I remember when I was in secondary school thinking I should have my life planned out, and while the rest of my friends knew what their next step was and what they wanted to do with that in their life all sorted out, I didn't. I never really have, but looking back there isn't much I would have done differently, the things we choose shape who we are people. We choose certain paths because that is what is right for us at that moment, events before have shaped us and changed us before we choose and all of those things have happened for a reason.

This isn't just about big life decisions, it is about the small things like deciding to go to that party because you haven't left the house or been social in a while and meeting some of the people that are now some of your best friends. It is watching a film, reading a book, or talking to somebody that changes your perspective on your situation right now. If you look back and see how many of the great things in your life may not have happened if you had left the house 5 minutes later, if you watched another cat video on YouTube instead of  reading that book for class.

So yes I guess you could say I believe in fate. But I also think you can change your fate.

XO, Miriam
