-The Pre-determined you-

What would you say if I told you I knew how your life was going to play out? It's all predetermined. The future cannot be changed or altered. One could argue that changing your life is as simple as making decisions, but you see, the fact that you even think about making those decisions, and the fact that you are reading this is all part of the master plan. So next time something horrible happens in your life, just remind yourself that it's part of the master plan. I'm not saying it's for the best, but you couldn't have changed it no matter what you did.

And so, you see, I am able to tell you one thing that relates to everyone. The only thing guaranteed in life, is death.

No matter who you become or how hard you work, we all end up the same in the end. Death doesn't concern itself with how much money you make a year or what kind of education you have. You will work so hard to find yourself, before realizing that it doesn't matter. During your lifetime there will be things that you fondly remember and things that you'd rather forget, it seems to me, that the things you will want to forget will far outweigh the things you would ever want to remember, that's just the way life works.

Enjoy the struggle that will, without a doubt, be your life. You will struggle with yourself mostly. Your morals, obligations, feelings and emotions will lead you through many times and places, using them as a guide is the smartest thing you can do, and as you'll no doubt see, it is also the stupidest. You'll also struggle with people, who, coincidently all have their own morals, obligations, feelings and emotions, and at times these will be far removed and different from the ones you hold and allow to guide you, and that's where the conflict and struggle will be. Have fun with that one.

During your struggle, it would be kind of you to realize that the people around you are also struggling. If you were any kind of a real human being you would help these people and comfort them. Then again- don't. Let the plans unfold. Your help will only be forgotten and easily overwritten by higher standards.

Ask yourself, when you are gone, will you be remembered or forgotten? To some people this will be a big deal, most will want to be forever remembered and held in high esteem and praise in others eyes. Then there are the few who couldn't care any less, why? Because they will be dead, what good comes from you knowing how you were viewed and how you might be remembered?

So enjoy the struggle. Feel what you want, be what you want, do what you want, say what you want and then die. The timer is ticking, how fast? For some, not fast enough.
