The Wheel of Fortune
The wheel of fortune is a truly wonderful thing, she spins, she chooses our fate, or does she?
There are only two things we know for sure, we are born, we die. In Between I think some things are already predestined for us but some I think we make happen ourselves.
I imagine a pathway coming to a crossroad. Do you go left or right? Which way you choose determines the fate that awaits you. Some things we can change, some things we cannot.
When you find out you are going to lose someone that you love deeply, you can kick and scream, beg, cry, pray, threaten, but at the end of the day, it’s happening.
You can say that the smoker dying of lung cancer should never have smoked, but then some people smoke all their lives with no effect don’t they?
You can say the alcoholic, dying of liver cancer should never have drunk, or the drug addict should never have taken drugs, but we choose what we do to some extent.
Do you ever feel like you are swimming against the tide? No matter how hard you try you cannot move forward? I do.
It is a very difficult subject and sadly, we will probably never know all the answers.
I do know there are lots of roads I should have taken and didn’t and lots I should never have taken.
Yet some people seem to sail through life with very little bad stuff affecting them at all. Is this because of the roads they have chosen, or destiny?
Who knows what’s in store, perhaps as well we don’t, I hope the wheel of fortune spins favourably for you all today, or that you choose the right path to take.
