As much as it feels like things are predetermined, I feel only you have the power to plow through life with the best [or worst] intentions. Sure some of the things you will encounter might be horrible, but we don’t complain when things go right. You can’t just enjoy one, without suffering through the other. Besides, there is always something great that happens with the bad, it’s just a matter of finding it. Only you can carve your destiny. You don’t find luck, and opportunity is certainly not going to come looking for you; You have to make your own luck.
