We go through life not knowing what tomorrow may bring.

Glimpses of our past tend to guide us in unknown directions.

Whether it be a new career, a marriage, a new child, a new home, or a new life.

Who's to say what our destiny has in store for us?

It is said that everything happens for a reason.  But I ask why?

Why must there be pain and suffering?  

What is the reason behind devastation?

It is said the reason for such heartache is that it strengthens us.

But I say it weakens us.

War, death, natural disasters, mass murders, diseases, hate.

Such tragedy in  ones life is devastation in itself.

Anger, bitterness, resentment, betrayal.

A wounded soul becomes lost in the rush of life.

Are these the glimpses of our past we want to guide us?

Tomorrow may still remain a mystery.

But why not go in our own directions.

Why not choose and follow our own destiny ?

Make the memorable reasons momentous.
