I believe in free will. I think fate believes in free will...the thing is, our personalities are such, that we will pick the same road, or make the same type of choices, every time.
Fate knows us. Fate is a living, breathing entity that learns and evolves with us.
Fate is the will of the great I Am, combined with the spirit of us.
Sometimes, things happen, and they seem horrific. Hell, they are horrific. But time, and distance, shows us that we wouldn't change those instances. Every thing that happens, leads us somewhere new. Sometimes the biggest 'mistakes' or most awful occurrences, lead us to best parts of our life.
"Everything happens for a reason" has become merely a trite saying that other people tell us when they have no explanation for the terrible.
But it's true! Gosh darn it! It is absolutely, irrevocably (I hate that word) true!
We may not be able to see the reason, see what road we're on or where it ends, but you may trust that everything that happens to you, happens for a very specific reason.
Fate exists. You can shape it, but you can't necessarily change it. All you can do is react, piece yourself back together, and get back on the road.
