Destiny isn’t written in the stars, the wind or the earth. Our futures can only be planted, watered, taken care of and harvested by ourselves. You can’t always go with the flow just and the winds can’t always guide you. You are the only one who can guide the path your journey takes.

We shouldn’t think that destiny in something inert, immovable and still. We can’t be victims of old beliefs that blame great omnipotent beings for everything that happens to us. There is no being with immense power that decides things for us. It’s our heart that decides what paths to take, and our feet that move forward along them.

What we do with the hand we’re dealt

It’s true that upon birth, we’re all dealt a certain hand with which we get to play. You may have seen the been born into a comfortable and wealthy family. It’s also possible that you came into a world of much worse conditions. However, these facts shouldn’t be an obstacle or reason to conform and get carried away by your circumstances.

Regardless of the environment your had to grow up and live in, you are the only owner of your destiny. The cards that landed in your hands hold within them aces, kings and jokers. Don’t ever settle for what you believe to be immovable, because you’ll end up suffering through a hard, bland and sad life.

“Destiny is the one who deals the deck, but we are the ones who play the cards.”
-William Shakespeare-

There is enough strength within our heart and abilities to deny a destiny that we don’t like or that doesn’t make us happy. We can each find the energy within each to overcome and look to the future with hope.

Changing your destiny

The paths of destiny are not always easy. Despite having been born into a wealthy family, fighting against your surroundings is never simple. But this is not a reason to give in.

We are the only owners of our destiny. We decide what we want to do with our lives, our world and our environment. It’s up to you whether you conform to what you’ve been given, or whether you try to do something good with the tools at your disposal.
