Why do things happen? How did we become who and what we are today? Is it fate? luck? coincidences? We have a hundred reasons for why our life turns out the way it does and usually, it's never because of us. I guess it's easier to blame the world, the circumstances and say, I didn't have any choice...It's the will of God! But the fact is, our life is the way it is because of the choices that we have made. I do not deny the fact that there are things beyond our control and these can affect the choices we make. But the truth is, we do have choices ... I like the way Jason Kotecki said it in his blog " but here’s the really REALLY important thing: the choices may not be easy, ideal, comfortable, safe, quick, cheap, simple, popular or fun. Pretending you don’t have them is not realistic. It’s just wrong. "
