There is something to be said for leaving life up to fate; and just as much to be said for planning your life. Happiness arrives with balance between the two extremes. Some might say that with balance you lose the strengths of both sides – I disagree. I think you can choose to focus on the strengths or the weaknesses; meaning it still boils down to you.
More often then not, when you stop searching you find what you have been looking for. However, if you never looked for it to begin with, you don’t always find it. Why is that? Maybe because you have your mind in “search” mode and you become more observant without even realizing it? I donno…I’m just guessing.
“Chance favors only the prepared mind.”
