    Great thoughts, Taylor. Though I’ve never liked that phrase, I think you’ve treated it in a way we can find common ground on. I like Plato’s understanding of “destiny”. He called it “telos”. For instance the telos/destiny of every acorn is an oak tree. However, Plato would point out, sometimes squirrels get in the way of our telos/destiny. So I believe that our telos is to become what we were created to become, recognizing that all the squirrels that get in the way are opportunities to chart a new course, uniquely our own, but in partnership with our telos/destiny.

    And then, from one other line in your blog, I would add what I heard a friend of mine say recently; “It’s a bad day, not a bad life. Keep moving forward.”
