“Destiny is not a matter of chance;
it is a matter of choice.
It is not something to be waited for;
but, rather something to be achieved."
— William Jennings Bryan

I love this quote because it holds awesome power. I used to live in a world where I wondered what I was supposed to do; what my destiny was. I was waiting for a sign, holding out for an external deity to direct me toward this that I was meant to do, and the person I was destined to be. It was the world of someone or something else's choosing and I the hoping, wishing, wanting and not knowing receiver.
Then, I learned that this power is not without, but completely and totally within. Before, zero power, and now, ultimate power.
I suppose the other side of that new power is that I no longer have any excuses that make any sense. . .
