"The true test... is whether chance of birth or circumstance decides life's big winners and losers, or whether we build a community where... everyone has a chance to work hard, get ahead, and reach their dreams." Barack Obama was talking here about his vision for the USA. But you could read these words as a commentary on fate versus free will. Are we destined to accept whatever life gives us? Or can we strive to make the most of our potential? Today brings the USA a new president and it brings you a new start.
Now, I don't know if this dude sneaks into my brain while I'm sleeping or what because this is getting really ridiculous. STOP STALKING MY THOUGHTS. Today is significant for me as far as my future is concerned. Or part of my future anyway. That's all I can say for now. I've also adopted a personal mantra:
Hold your own
Know your name
Go your own way
And everything will be fine
It's song lyrics, which is totally gay but I like them and I heard them at a time when I needed to so that's that. ENOUGH OF THIS OPRAH SHIT. Get on with your day.
