PAMELA JO BOWMAN – MESA ARIZONA – I heard a comment the other day. A thought provoking one for me. The concept of destiny as a prison. If we are destined to be someone or do something then there really aren’t any choices. What will be will be. Essentially we are imprisoned with whatever that might be. I don’t know about you, but I believe this life is all about choices and by extension the freedom to choose.
It seems to me that many people I know believe in destiny. Why, I am not sure. Their comments and actions imply that they are special, maybe more special or more deserving. Others seem to act like they don’t deserve anything at all. Even destined to fail.
The human condition is funny like that. There are moments we all have where we ponder on our individual life experiences. Some attribute their experiences to destiny and others to opportunity. Choices plus attitude equals you. Imprisioned with self imposed limits or liberated with potential and promise. The choice is yours. Own it.
