I don’t think I do. The idea that things are pre-destined, that no matter what choice is made, the outcome is set in stone, I just can’t buy it. I can’t buy into “everything happens for a reason” in small, stupid things (like my stupid house not selling for 15 freaking months!!!), I certainly can’t jump on for the big things. I don’t have much more of an answer than that, really. I can’t say that it does or doesn’t impact my life because I just don’t pay enough attention (to that or much else – I’m a bit of a space-case if you didn’t already know). It’s a romantic idea (and not just the romantic version of fate), but not one that I can stand behind.
