I believe there is no side-stepping or avoiding destiny no matter how fancy your footwork! The clue is in the word! Destiny is destined for YOU and that’s that, No room for manoeuvre whatsoever. You may think you’ve outsmarted good ole Destiny but realise, while in the process of giving yourself a congratulatory pat on the back, that it's staring you in the face. Some people, situations, or events are meant for us to experience and learn from. Perhaps not all pleasant or what we would normally wish for but, with hindsight, may prove to be just what was needed at the right time and the right place in our journey along the path of Life. Be easy on yourself along the way and accept.
