Destiny is something that either you believe in it or you don't. Children seem to be more likely to believe in it than adults, though. When we are children, we see all of these fairytale destiny moments in movies, television, and even the books that we read. We picture all of these moments in our heads, let our imaginations soar, and desired for these fantasies to come true. All of these moments were so magical in our eyes and in our imaginations that we longed for destiny to work its magic on us. Adults tend to think more practically. They generally think that if you want something to happen, you have to work for it and make it happen yourself. After going through life experiences, they usually give up a little on fate and start to make things happen for themselves, so they in turn start to think that this is the only way they will get what they want and what they think they deserve; the only way to acheive is to make it so.
We pass by people, and meet people nearly on an everyday basis. There has to be a reason for it. Maybe we were meant to have them in our lives. Some people come into our lives as a blessing, but others are there as a lesson for next time. Because of our rash thinking, we may have mistaken the "blessings" as "lessons" and pushed people away who are meant to help us.
Everybody has their own little group of friends. Some of these groups are more inviting while others push people away. We see this in our everyday lives, such as in school. I sit in the classroom and when there is extra time at the end of class, some people stick to their small group, and others can and most likely will talk to everyone and anyone. I believe that everyone that comes into our lives has an important role to play to shape who we are and who we will be. We just have to be willing to let them.
