I don’t believe in accidents. I believe that things happen for a reason.

I know you are probably shaking your head right now. It is just a cliche, right?

That may be true for you, but for me it is a reality. I would not be standing right here, in this point in time if certain things hadn’t happened. I would not be in a different city, with a new life, with a new self if there had not been moments and experiences that brought me here. I don’t think God has every moment of our lives mapped out, but I do believe that he brings people and opportunities in and out of your life when they are supposed to be there.

I also am a very strong-willed person. I try to will things to happen and often it isn’t what is going to get me where I am supposed to be. It is funny how powerful will is. It isn’t funny how it can cause frustration and pain. I have to constantly challenge my will to back down and let me just exist.

Are you willful or willing?
