Does everything happen for a reason? I hope so... It would be a very uninteresting world if everything just happened. I am not one to believe in a grand scheme for everything. I refuse to believe the future has been pre-written, but sometimes it is hard to ignore that some things just fall in to place like they were meant to be that way. It is the little things like that that keep my faith where it is. Like my recent move to Florida.
If I would have gotten the call about this new position the following day, I would not have been able to accept it. I was planing on signing a one year lease for a new apartment near the Biltmore area in Phoenix that afternoon. So there was the first thing that fell into place for the move. The rest that started happening is just because of my own hard work and desire to make it work. I found possible places to live quickly and started figuring out all the details of what it would take to actually make the move. I planed a trip down to the area to see places to live and to find out some details of what areas to look for a home. In the end I made it happen.
I can't really say I believe there is something driving the outcome of life. Sometimes things happen that just can't be explained and you just have to have faith. But remember you make your own good things happen. Don't rely on destiny or what ever you call it to shape your life for you.
