Fate puts opportunity in front of us. Destiny is the result of what we choose to do with it. In turn, destiny is a choice. Not some predetermined thing of fairy tales and lore. We can sit and allow destiny to happen to us, or we can choose to have destiny happen for us. Don’t wait to be chosen… instead choose. Decisions= Destiny
