Your destiny is simply what you become in the end. Just as no one has ever come back from the dead to fulfill his destiny, and we all have potential for greatness, yet not all the people that have died since beginning of the world lived a great life. Then it's either destiny is not set in stone or it's not made good for everyone. Since I'll never know which the case is, I choose to believe that it is not set in stone. Fixed for everyone of us before our birth and that whatever choices we make in life we are no more than victims of our own destinies. I believe that man -- that I, that anyone, that everyone -- can live a great life, can have a great destiny. That it's not the destiny of Nigerians to have the current life we live in Nigeria. That it's not the destiny of the over 200 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram to be kidnapped. That it is not the destiny of anyone to die in poverty.
I believe that destiny is what we make of it, by our individual actions and community actions. By the good we do and the evil we breed. By the choice of leaders we make, by the friends we keep, by the thoughts we have, by the beliefs we hold on to and by the lives we live. We are not victims of a life decided for us long before we were born and of which we cannot alter. We are the very pen that writes our destiny.
