We control our destiny?

For years I’ve tried to take control of my destiny. I’ve tried so hard to plan each step and told myself that by such and such date, I would be here or there and I would have this or that. Yet, by the arrival of the date that I said I would be someplace or have something, I discovered that it was something that I never planned to have happen.

I look back over my life and I can honestly say that I did not plan to be in the position that I’m in now. I sometimes wish that I could do things a little differently or have known about situations that I should have avoided. And yet, I continue to plan year after year. But no more. Today is the day that I live my life one day at a time.

Of course I will still have goals in life such as becoming a CPA. However, what I will no longer do is sit and try to plan each step in becoming a CPA.  I will no longer sit and say, when I graduate, I’ll go and work for this company and I’ll go and buy this kind of car and I’ll live in this kind of house.

I know I have a rough road ahead of me. It will not be easy. Yet, life is not easy. No one said it would be easy and some have it better than others. That’s life. I’ve learned that we only fail when we stop trying.
