“Destiny is a word that implies an ending: a destination to one’s life. When two people were ‘destined for each other’, they’ve given in to a notion that the journey is complete. The best definition to fate that I’ve heard is that ‘fate is what happens.’ In other words, fate is reality.” – Wikipedia
Fate is reality, it is what happens. Fate is what we endure, until something happens to change the status quo. Destiny is different. Destiny implies an ending, a destination to somewhere. That our journey will be complete. Destiny is a journey that we have control over, our destiny can be changed when our circumstances change.
But whether you believe in fate or destiny, you do get to change the ending to your fate. Something you’re born into, isn’t something that will continue. That just because you start out one way, doesn’t mean your life has to continue that way.
We must be determined to change, to move on. We must remain stalwart in our determination to change and to then change our circumstances. Whatever we change is the start of a new destination and that then becomes your fate. A new reality different to the old one.
