Amor Fati

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Amor Fati an acceptance of the events or situations that occur in one's life. It's a Latin phrase which means to "love of fate" or "love of one's fate".

I am sitting here and watching the blinking of the mouse, trying to organize my thoughts. This Phrase has been giving me a lot of meanings.. Something that includes love of my own fate. Do I love my own fate?
Looking back. My life was never perfect.

But this... is my fate.

“The word of the LORD came to me, saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, / before you were born I set you apart; / I appointed you as a prophet to the nations’” (Jeremiah 1:4-5).

After reflecting on my life lately, I have realized one thing. We humans, we make our own fortune and call it fate, when in reality, its a choice. I made a lot of wrong choices in the past and blame it on my fate, but the truth is.. I knew all along I could control everything. Again, it was my own choice and not my fate. My Fate is this life I am living, but making choices is a choice.

Our thoughts and actions are what makes us who we are, its a lifetime process of creating and re-creating our own selves that makes us different from all the others even to our own selves sometimes. We do have a choice to change for the better or sulk in our old selves. For me, again.. our life is our own Fate, it was written by God. Being alive today is our Fate, it was all along our own choice on how to live this life, but God grant us free will to make our own choices so that he could see how far we could try to live a worthwhile life of Fate that He has given us or just take it all away with lame suicidal attempts, fail life choices and hateful acts.

I really don't know what this life has to offer, and fate is such a vague word for me to describe or truly understand. But one thing's for sure.. there's still a lot of mistakes waiting for me and for all of you to take and make, but I am just hanging in here, gloriously hanging. And as much as possible I am trying to embrace life as it is, embracing and accepting all my weaknesses as a human. I am trying to enjoy my youth, eating with gusto everyday and just simply appreciating all the smallest things this life has to offer. All because I have faith in GOD, faith in God that can never be shaken. I'm just built this way, and I am hoping that some of you too.

I guess, Fate is one thing we really have no control of. But as of today, I just want to live for more right now and not fear about the future.

Let's leave our FATE all to the will of God, and just make the right choices for now.

After all, the Bible says..
God blesses the obedient, and He is patient with those who disobey, even to the point of seeming laxity. He has a plan for our lives, which includes our happiness and His glory both in this world and in the world to come. Those who accept Christ as Savior have accepted God’s plan (John 14:6)
