A wonderful story, Estee, and you are right: We are not alone.
Some food for thought on the “destiny” matter that came to my mind: My grand-mother. She was a remarkable person. Born in 1906 she spent some of her childhood in WW1, and as a young mother with five kids she had to get through WW2 alone, her husband being out in the fields. (He wasn’t a Nazi but had no realistic chance to refuse service though as all the other men.) The uncertainty if he would survive (he did). The difficult post-war years. Her professional life never reached beyond her being a mother and running a small farm in Northern Germany. No studies, no fulfilling profession, no “mission” whatsoever. Her radius was not more than 15km around her home village. As a protestant, she was not excessively religious. And now the best: At the ago of 96 she was in absolutely good health, no cancer, no Alzheimer, no diabetes, absolutely nothing. She has never seen a hospital from inside. Not in 96 years. Up until her last day she spread happiness and self-confidence every single day. By heart. One day in spring 2002, she just went asleep and did not wake up anymore.
I was always trying to learn from this, and I believe that the lesson is that we do not need a destiny.
Our destiny is to be. My grand-mother knew it somehow.
Wishing you health and happiness until you’re 96! It is possible, there is a proof.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment 🙂
Your grandmother’s story is AMAZING! You should share it with others.
May we all live in good health and happiness to age to 96 and beyond, amen!
Thanks again for the great share.
All the best to you,
