Thanks to Hollywoods' amplified version of the word "destiny"- we are all lead to believe that it is something associated with what the hidden power controls. I am one of the few, that is completely against this fictional belief.
In my eyes, the word destiny and the power it carries along with it, can only be attainable through ones will and desire to reach a goal. To relate receiving something or meeting someone as the cause of destiny, is totally eccentric, and let me tell you why.
like I've mentioned above, your destiny lies in the power of your hands - what you do now, is a forecast of what will shadow you in the future, for example - your choice to pursue your studies now, may land you a job later on. Your choice to relocate overseas, may introduce you to a broader aspect on life - all these scenarios are the inevitable promoters of your destiny.
What you work towards to currently, will determine your future.
In the words of William Jennings Bryan, "Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice, it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved". To sit back and wait for what you want, trains and develops a laid-back mindset - one that not much is capable of.
Some of the worlds renowned scientists, inventors, philosophers etc. have all at some point questioned their own destiny, their birth, their purpose on Earth. The only difference that separates us from them is their will power and their drive. To be great, you have to do great. The only way that lead them to fame and fortune was through hard work and determination to see their ideas through. Your destiny is your future, and your future is your choice.
Being women, our destinies are stereo-typically set out to be house-wives and inferior to men (in terms of the working world) but that is only subject to those who believe it. I am here to tell you that this is not your destiny, this is a perceived olden day destiny set out for those incapable of anything, but that isn't you. You are born into a developing generation that will slowly but surely embrace your change upon introduction. You aren't subject to abiding by past rulings of a womans' future. You are although, subject to creating your own, to finding your own feet, to running your world on your own terms. Create your own destiny.
