Our Destiny.... is Life!

"People often meet their destiny on the road they take to avoid it." ~French Proverb
The universe has a way of sending us the exact right experiences that we need to grow and move forward.  Our challenge is to embrace these experiences and be open to their lessons and their power.
So much has happened in my life; and as I progress though and grow personally, I can now see a lesson in almost every challenge I've encountered.  I believe that destiny really is a predetermined course of events that are beyond human power or control.  
"When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready.  The challenge will not wait.  Life does not look back.  A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny." ~Paulo Coulho
