Every once in a while you come across people and things that are just meant to be in your life. I’ve pretty much resigned to the fact that majority of the things in my life – are results of pure kismet … maybe even Divine Intervention. Meeting my boyfriend, clicking on Petfinder the day Harley was first posted, even finding a small ad in the news paper for an Open House were all signs of things that were meant to be. I’ve always been a firm believer in making sure I never regret anything.
I was married for nearly ten years – and I don’t regret a minute of it. Though the breakup was difficult, I learned a lot about myself and gained a good friend. That marriage was meant to be as well.
I make an attempt at embracing whatever life may throw at me – good and bad. Being religious, it is easier for me to put my faith in God and know that He has my best interest at hand. But, I realize that life isn’t always a rose garden – I lost my dad when I was 25 to lung cancer, my grandmother at 25 to heart failure and my Godmother at 26 to lung cancer. I didn’t understand it at first – and it hurt immensely – but those deaths were also to play a huge role in my kismet – preparing me for other positive experiences about to happen in my life. The point is – I believe we are all destined for something and the people we meet and experiences we experience are all meant to be. I wouldn’t trade my life for anyone else’s.
What is your take on fate, kismet and destiny? Do you feel things in your life were meant to be? Please comment, I’d love to know!!
