Destiny, real or an illusion?

fateDestiny is also known as fate. Destiny is predetermined course of events or even a predetermined future. Do you believe anything can adjust what our fate is or it is just going to happen no matter what we do? I have always said that I believe everything happens for a reason and that our story was written before we were born and we are just playing the part. I do believe we have choices though and maybe some of our choices do alter what our future holds.

I think that the hand we were dealt in life, no matter how difficult it is, we are strong enough to handle it. When I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, all I could think was what in the world did I do so wrong to be plagued with this illness, but now I do not view it as a punishment. I am trying to view it more as an opportunity to do more to help others and see life in a different light. You can almost appreciate life more when you have something that is not curable yet and can actually affect your quality of life.

I feel that I met my husband purely out of fate. We were destined travel this journey of large (1)life together because we were truly meant to be. We understand each other more than most which is a great thing. He understands that the pain I live with causes me a terrible amount of fatigue making it so I do not have energy to do somethings. I also understand the pain that he has been inflicted with and that it causes him to need rest. Was it fate that two people who have chronic pain issues would meet, fall in love and get married? I tend to believe it was because some people would not be able to handle the restrictions pain causes in a daily life.

Let me ask you, do you believe in destiny or do you think it is just a perception of events? Do you think we have the ability to change the course of our lives by changing our actions or thoughts?

  1. The only thing that I am sure of at my age now, (that’d be 50!), is that I do not know much! I certainly do not believe that every step we take is predetermined because we have free will. I think we are human and sometimes our bodies make mistakes and we get ill. But I do believe in a kind of destiny… the only question is how we get there?

  2. I do believe that the life we have been given is a blessing from God. Life is filled with choices, good and bad. I believe the choices we make in life can change the path of our lives and ultimately that affects our future. I’m not sure about destiny or fate. I think we can change the life we’ve been given through our attitude, choices and desire to put others needs before our own. It’s not about you or me, it’s what we can do for those in need. I believe we determine what happens to us so dream big and believe life is what you make it. It’s how long we are here that is out of our control. So be kind, not hateful….

    • Thank you so much for this great comment Mom! I love the ideas you have and they seem pretty valid to me! I do believe the choices we make can change the paths we are on for the better or even worse, but our choices are so important. It is so VERY important to be kind to everyone and not hateful, there is no extra space in life for hate!!


    • Oh my goodness thank you so much for the great compliment! I also do appreciate you sharing this on Facebook. I do my best to not only raise awareness of MS, but also try to keep things positive! I think there is so much negativity in this world and I am trying to balance it out! I do appreciate your comment, you really made my day!! I hope you have had a great weekend and I hope you are feeling well!!!!


  3. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
