Yes, good news! Destiny is not dealt, it is earned!
It is good news that destiny is earned rather than just randomly dealt. Knowing this and trusting that it is so gets rid of the victim complex. It gets rid of a lot of complexes. Whatever life we are living now was set up by our actions in the past, sometimes the distant past. The dye was cast then for the happenings now. We can certainly see this on the short term. That makes it essential for us to walk the good path now because we will surely meet is fruits on the road ahead.
Now in this same regard, we could feel badly about living a difficult life now assuming that we must have done something really awful in the past. This complex too can be given up because if we had known better we would have done better. Knowledge gets us where we need to go. So, being grateful for the life we have at this moment and the circumstances in it, whether it's living as a princess or as a pauper is exactly the right attitude. Who is to say that living one way or the other is better? Life is a blessing in all its forms and ways. One day we are all destined to see it that way. This I truly believe.
"Life is wonderful!"
I'm an author/illustrator of many children's books, over 100. I've also had 26 of my own licensed art galleries across the country and filled them with my art and happy thoughts. Those thoughts have been put into gifts art pieces and been the basis of my King Features syndicated newspaper panel. Some of those Happy Musings are the inspiration for this blog, along with other daily observations. Enjoy!
