The journey called life is full of crossroads. As any living person knows, no one can stay at a crossroad forever. You eventually have to decide which road to take, no matter whats holding you back, and even if you have no idea what lies ahead in the road you eventually decide to take.
But, unlike a literal road where all it takes is a U turn to go back, the road called life allows no turning back.. All we can do is make the most of the situation we end up in. Mistakes will be made, and we either learn from them and move forward, or allow our mistakes to consume us alive – just another crossroad where a tough decision needs to be made as to which way to go next. I guess this is what is meant by we mold our own fate. After all, we make our own decisions. What happens to us is beyond our control, how we decide to react to what happens to us is not..
Life is just a journey of decisions that need to be made – just one crossroad after another.
