Beyond Fate: The Beauty of Choosing Our Path in Love


Looking back on our journey together, I realize that our love story is a testament to the power of cause and effect. Every decision we made, every action we took, led us to where we are today - in a happy and loving marriage.

Some people might attribute our relationship to fate or a higher power, but I don't believe in coincidences. Everyday as more information can be calculated into statistical probability the idea of coincidence becomes more unlikely. I believe that our choices and actions have a direct impact on our lives. Reflecting on our journey together, I realize that it was my choice to approach Angela that day, to strike up a conversation, and to pursue her with all my heart. And through our continued effort and dedication, we've been able to build a beautiful life together.

I think that's the beauty of not leaving things up to chance or fate. When we take responsibility for our lives, we empower ourselves to create the future we want. We're not at the mercy of a higher power or cosmic force - we're the architects of our own destiny. Attributing success to abstract factors or dismissing one's own efforts and abilities can be counterproductive, as it can prevent a person from recognizing their strengths and identifying areas for improvement.

However, I also recognize that there may be other factors at play beyond our individual control. It's possible that a higher power, whether it be God or some other divine force, has had a hand in shaping our lives and bringing us together. And even if we cannot fully understand or explain these forces, it doesn't diminish the impact of our own choices and actions.

To me I find it more healthy to attribute things outside of my control to statistical circumstances, rather than an unknown power that could be judging me. This is because attributing events to external factors that are beyond our control, such as statistical circumstances, can help maintain a sense of perspective and avoid feelings of guilt or shame.

But of course, that's not to say that ethics don't play a role in our lives. In fact, I would argue that ethics are more important than predetermined platitudes or dogmas. When we make ethical decisions, we act in accordance with our values and our sense of what's right. We don't simply follow a set of rules or beliefs without questioning them.

In my relationship with Angela, ethics have been crucial. Our commitment to honesty, kindness, and compassion has been the foundation of our love. We've faced challenges and disagreements, but we've always come back to those values. And because of that, we've grown closer and stronger.

I'm filled with gratitude for the power of cause and effect, the importance of ethics, and the beauty of not leaving things up to chance or fate. Angela, my love for you grows stronger every day, and I will always cherish you. Here's to another decade of growing and learning together.
