This Is Your Life

If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you?

As tempting as that sounds, I wouldn’t read it. One of the most fascinating parts of life is the uncertainty of it all and what adventure lies ahead. Having been told what happens beforehand would lead you down two paths as well as a major spoiler alert:

1. You like what you have read and live life knowing good things are ahead but nothing ever catches you by surprise anymore and takes the fun out of it.

2. You don’t like you have read and go though life constantly trying to change the outcome and will consume you for the rest of your life.

To me, reading the book is the same as accepting fate and I want to believe that I’m in control of my own destiny and can change it however and whenever I want.
