You should read this. Lynn is one of my favorite writers of all time and I love this part:
“…if i hadn’t consistently jammed my foot between one particular door and the slam of inevitability, i wouldn’t be here, now, comfortable in this company, catching up, comparing presents and futures, and watching the lights of north-holland slide brightly by.”
I believe in fate and meant-to-be’s and finding your destiny. But I don’t believe it’s EVER easy or that everyone finds theirs. And I think it’s special, certain types of people who can chase their destinies down, jam their foot in the doors and demand their chance.
It’s a great image, isn’t it?
