I believe in fate, so much so that I strongly consider it everyday. Fate allows each of us to find our way but end up in the right place with the right people. Many people believe in coincidences. Well so do I, to a certain extent. However, I cannot help but believe that some things happen for a reason and we should accept that. Many of the events that make the biggest impact on our lives happen naturally, or on their own, not by force or set up situations. Has anyone noticed that the best things in life usually come up by surprise? You don’t see them coming until they arrive and then all of a sudden, things seem right. Fate pulls everything and everyone together.
