15.entry: Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

"It is a man-made opportunity for us to write a new book, or at least a new chapter."

So my darlings, it is time for festivities to begin. We have come a long way. We have made mistakes, we have done some things right, but in the end we came out stronger. Because we are still here and what doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger, right? So today I will not write a long essay about how you should be better and what can you do make it right. No, today I will tell you to enjoy your holidays and make plans and dreams for the new year that is going to be phenomenal. 

People say that New Year is bullshit and it is a waste of time and it is nothing special. Well it may be true, but it gives us a new energy and hope, a new strength to go on. To start all over, to start fresh. And that is what we all need to do. In the following week let us reflect on what we have achieved and let us acknowledge all that has happened to us in the year 2013. And sit down for a moment and cherish it all. Just soak in all the memories, the good and the bad. Like a mirror, we can see who we have become in this year. And on that basis we can make plans for a new year. Because we need dreams, we need hope, we need that spark inside of us, that we can make it better, that we can change and prosper. 

Lets forgive and forget all the bad things, just let it all go. Let go of all the anger and hate, and lets make some room for love instead. For love is our power. It gives us strength to help each other and to smile everyday. And even though I am not religious, I do believe in Christmas, the idea of it at least. Its time of rebirth, time to start a new. So my darlings, dare to make plans, because the sky is our limit and nothing can hold us back.
“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. 
And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”

14.entry: Fate and Destiny are for The Faint-Hearted!

“Knowing too much of your future is never a good thing.” 

So as promised in the last post I will talk about destiny and fate. But first let me mention the sudden increase in my viewership on my blog. Thank you readers for supporting me and let me just say, together we will make a better present and a wonderful future. I am positive of this. 


So why have I decided to talk about fate and destiny? I will never deny the existence of it, because it is not in my almighty power to do so, but let me point out, that I am a firm believer that we make our own destiny, and where there is a power there is a way. There have been many attempts for people to find our their future and their fate with the help of cards, magicians, magic orbs and stuff like that, and I am not saying it is not possible, I just don't think we should know what future holds for us. Because every day we make decisions and every day we shape who we are and the path we are on. So, by knowing what might be in store for us, we would turn out to be bias for certain decisions.


We make our destiny! First we need to know what we want and go after it. By doing so, we are heading down a path to our so called "destiny". To explain you this, let me share a quote with you: "Happiness is a combination of the right decisions." Nothing more and nothing less. If you decide right for yourself then you shall be happy. Because you will decide for what is right and good and what will get you closer to your goal.

So many believe in a certain fate that is written in the stars for us. Or maybe, in a book that is held by almighty God, and he decides what will be our destiny and where will we end up. I say no to all this! Yeah I will defy the universe! I will not accept that my path has been laid before me, long before I was born. Because what would be the point of going down a path and reaching a goal that has been compromised for you already. I think that everything that happens in our lives defies us and helps us get on. And also the person who I am today, has different fate and destiny then the person I was 2 years ago. He got me to where I am today and maybe that was his fate. We change everyday and so does our destiny. It is not something that is set in stone. So you can change who you are and where will you be going, you just need to be strong enough.  

So many people say that something happened for a reason, that somebody gives us obstacles we need to overcome to makes us stronger. You know how that someone is, life and yourself. We challenge ourselves everyday and we make things happen. For instance let me give you and example: You get really sick and the doctors tell you that you wont make it if you don't stop smoking or drinking or something bad. And then you think to yourself: "Oh look, this disease happened to me for a reason, because God wants me to live a better and healthier life.". Well that is just wrong, we called the disease upon us by doing something wrong in the first place and it probably wouldn't happen to us if we didn't smoke or drink. So there is no "might happen for a reason". It is just our decisions that make us or brake us. And our decisions come from our mind so they are who we are. And by that we are the reason, behind things that happen to us in life. We are the key to our happiness. (this exclude bad things that can/may happen to us, because of an accident or something - here I apply the rule, "we cant prevent what we cant predict").


So my suggestion to all of you would be. Go out there, and fucking make your own destiny happen. Do what makes you happy and believe that nobody can determine your future for sure, but yourself. Be who you want to be, and be happy. 


I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
