Blog-o-sphere Think Tank - Oct. 2013 - Do you believe in destiny/ fate/ kismet (etc)?

Blog-o-sphere Think Tank - Oct. edition It's been a loooooong time since I've blogged. apparently.... almost a year! wowza! Do I believe in destiny/fate/kismet? Yes, in a matter of sorts... Do I believe that every action, every happening, every tiny detail is absolutely planned out and no matter what we do, every particular thing is bound to happen? No. not in that sense. I do believe that many things are "meant to be", that there are people we are bound to meet, experiences we are destined to have. I believe that most things happen for a reason, whether large or small. I also believe in free will and the ability to choose. I also believe that we have the ability to make things happen. I don't think that rules out the fact that certain things will happen in our lives regardless of what we do. I think we're here to learn certain lessons and those may come in a variety of shapes or forms. To look back at a string of events and see every detail that led to a current outcome, it is really difficult for me to think that things are just absolutely totally random and pointless. Or maybe it is just that I think life is more interesting believing this way ;) Check out what other people think this month:
