Alone with my thoughts...

How many times have you relied on force majeure to solve your problems? Or to make a decision you have no courage to make? Or simply to show you the next step and guide you through your pre-booked journey of life?

Are your choices really yours? Have you always wanted to become what you are now - a teacher, a waiter, a photographer, a football player? Was it your decision to fall in love with that person? Or was it fate?

When the morning comes, it’s time to forget the questions. Go to work, pick up the kids, do the chores… No time to think… No time to wonder why we do what we do… We just live, without second-guessing the reasons for the way we live.

But, when the night falls, when silence fills the air around you and you’re left with only your mind to make you company... Surely, at least once, all of you must have wondered:

Am I the master of my own fate, or is fate the master of me?
