The differences between coincidence and destiny lie in perspective. Is all driven by chance or intention? Did we evolve from living slime or awake after being formed from dirt? Is there a purpose to life? Would we ponder purpose if none existed?
Perhaps we are all characters in a story.
A notebook with your name on it sits on a shelf. Your appearance and personality scrawled within pages filled before time existed. You were destined to be in the most intriguing epic. We drive the plot and are driven by it. The epic takes more turns than the Transfăgărăşan as each decision affects every character and storyline. Defeats mix with victories. Each climax and resolution draw the story one page closer to the apex. The story will have the greatest happily ever after, but it will not be on the last page. It will be the only happily ever after without end.
