The closest I may ever come to enlightenment is knowing one secret I hold reverently: You can choose your life.
I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
I, on the other hand, have never had a clear path to walk. I’ve never had visions of my future or even any real goals to work towards. I’m good at loads of things, but not good enough to base my aspirations on them. I’ve spent my whole life fighting to survive, much less thrive.
You can play the cards you were dealt and live with the consequences, or you can chose something better for your life, you can choose to be happy.
