Loss & Destiny

Hello, please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Loss. I travel throughout the universe with a very specific job description. I help guide you to your destiny. I have several friends that either travel with me or on their own. Their names are pain, suffering, grief, anxiety, disappointment, unfairness and depression. Loss is a part of what is known as the cycle of life. I do not select my visited because they are more deserving of heart-ache than others. My job is not to punish, it is just to carry out what is to be. You have not been singled out to be hurt or punished, even though I know you may have thought so. Instead I am an instrument of fate, making room and space for your destiny. Destiny refers to what we are able to become whereas fate describes what one was. Destiny is what we each choose to do with fate, how we play the hand we’re each dealt. Destiny is determined not solely by fate, but by how we choose to respond to fate. You see loss starts visiting you when you are first born. The first time you experience me is when you are taken from the womb of your mother. I am the one that visited you when you lost your first front tooth. I was also there when you lost your first race. I was the one that visited you each time you had your heart broken. You see I have been a part of your life since the minute you were born. Sometimes my damage was easier to recover from than other times. I noticed when it was difficult for you but I could not intervene. I knew that I not only had a job to do, but you were in the middle of the molding process. You are the person that you are today because I visited you. Some of you have handled me easier than others, but all of you have grown as a result of my visits. There are so many people out there who have been touched by your loss experiences. Your influence was far more far reaching than just to yourself or your immediate family. There have been lives changed that you will never even know about, as a result of my visits to you. It was not just you that needed molding but others as well. I just wanted to take the time to thank-you for helping me to mold the universe.
