One-liner Wednesdays #15

Fate

(noun)

The one thing you can blindly put the blame on when things (read: life) don’t exactly work out the way you wanted them to.

  1. Lots of people do blame “fate”…I’m getting healthier in my old age, taking responsibility for my choices and decisions, instead of blaming others. It’s tricky, making that shift–but blaming fate just seems so lame. I don’t know what your religious beliefs are, but in the Bible, God promises to bring good from everything not-so-good that happens in our lives…our mistakes, the wrong people we attract or go after, etc. For me, that’s made the difference in my life–my failures don’t define me, they’re part of the grand tapestry God is making of my life. I do my best, and let HIM do the rest! Blessings and love to you today<3

    1. I’m so happy that you’re at that stage. I still resort to blaming fate. Because that’s the only explanation that calms down my mind when things totally go south. I’m a Hindu. In Hinduism too, we believe that whatever happens is for the good but at times I find that I’ll be too absorbed in the unfairness and injustice to see the bigger picture. Hope you have a great day.
