I do not believe in Fate. I believe each of us holds the key to our own destiny. Every day we make hundreds of choices and I think the quality of those decisions is, by and large, the determiner of our destinies. While each of us occasionally has to deal with issues and setbacks that are not of our own doing, how we rebound from these situations is in our own hands; and, our resulting attitudes are determined by ourselves and ourselves alone.
We can allow other people to influence us; but, ultimately, we must stand responsible for our actions and attitudes. If you chose to see the good around you, usually good things are drawn to you.
If your fate was already predetermined, there would be no need for choices - you would just follow your predetermined path in life.
