It is simply what it is destined to become.
A thistle cannot become a rose.
A skunk cabbage cannot change to a rhubarb plant.
They are what they are.
I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit lately, and how we cannot alter the fact that we are human beings; we cannot change that we are people any more than any other creature can change its species or genome.
There is something that we can change, though. We can change our nature. We can alter the decisions we choose to make from day to day…we can decide how to treat others around us.
There is nobody that controls our destiny.
We are whom we decide to become.
Who are you today?
