Thinking back before this day

How it came to be this way

Did you master all of it?

Every single little bit?

Or were there times you questioned too

Did your parents purchase you,

Or settled for the sight of you?

Do you have siblings, that you like,

Or cousins hence you like to fight?

Did you change your own hair colour,

Thinking that you’d look much better?

How come your friends have it all

When you struggle & feel so small?

How is it that you failed at school

And never felt that really cool?

Or maybe you are quite successful

Was this something just inevitable?

Was it clear from that day one

You had your orders one by one?

Did you know what was in store?

Did you know something more?

Is there a way to determine

What will be…is for certain?

If I await & take no action

Will I have much satisfaction?

But if I chose to play a hand

Will I succeed on this land?

Life’s not fair, this is my fate

Predetermined & gravitate

& when I decide in reality

Did I change my #Destiny?

#PaulaG #opism #paulapoems

To think of your fate is to be deterministic.

You just accept things..

“If it was meant to be it will happen”

“It is what it is”

To think in terms of Destiny allows probability to exist;

It is not absolute and allows for change.

If you don’t like it..change it!

Destiny is more #positive!

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
