Choices in life.
Life is all about decision making. Although it's true that all we could do is to plan and He will decide but still, you have to decide first what you are going to plan and how you want your life to be like, in accordance of ensuring your decision follows the original plan. You get what I mean?
Therefore, a lot of people who use the excuse of fate determines their lives are considered as bull crap. It does not work that way. Your fate is not determined by others and yes, solely true it is determined by your God. Then again, before you can actually rely on fate, you have to take charge of your life. True? If you chose to be involved in drugs nevertheless God has given you the lights and wisdom to get the hell out of it few months back, then, you will end up, trapped in your own decision. However, if you are able to get out from the deadly addiction, the seduction and allurement into getting involved with it again is not by fate, but by choice. You can choose to not to get involved again or to simply endure with the aftermath and eventually gain His blessing and be happy with your life.
Yes, it is as simple as that. So, don't tell me that it is a fate that you end up as a loser because it is not pre-planned by Allah that you will end up to be a sole loser or jackass or anything near that but it's by choice. Everyone was born with gifts, talents and strong credibility. And most of all, we were born with no sin at all. So, are we here to blame our parents, teachers or other role models of who we are today or should we blame ourselves for that?
So, think about it tonight. I know everything that happens to me is by choice. I'll make sure of the consequences first before I chose a certain path and even if I'm not sure, or by fate (now fate comes in), the consequences I predicted didn't go my way, then is when I will know. Therefore, no matter where I'll end up, I'll make sure that I can always come back to step one, to Him, my Creator, and beg for His forgiveness if that path turns out to be in sin and if not, I'll surely to thank Him for showing me the hikmah and life experiences along the way. InsyaAllah.
Are you aware of your choices? Or are you one of those people who leave your destiny in the hands of fate? Or are you just a sole lazy-ass who can't decide of what you want in life?
