What is fate, how to accept it, and what to do to change it. by Panney Wei, C.Ht.

"Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it."-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Two days ago was the anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr. I want to take a moment to thank him for his sacrifice and those of the Freedom Riders who walked along side with him peacefully to demand a more just and equitable government and a society that reflects kindness, inclusion, and respect and love for all mankind and fellow brothers and sisters on the path to truth, justice, and reaching goals.
I think oftentimes we only hear about the accomplishments of a person, and we sometimes don't hear about all the hard work leading up to the accomplishment and all the sacrifices made before the goal was accomplished and reached. In Martin Luther King Jr.'s case, we don't hear about all the details unless we sit in a civics course, a class in American history or civil rights and African American history.
I'm so grateful that my daughter is learning early on through school and through our efforts about the contributions to our society and our world, like those of MLK and those that paved the way for all of us to live in this great country, our America that is still seen as a leader and light in the world.
The problem is often we don't hear about how long MLK marched, how many times he was beaten, how many times he went to jail, and how his fellow activists who marched alongside him faced so much brutality and so much hate and obstacles towards their goals.
It takes tremendous courage to be able to stay strong in the face of adversity and in the face of those that wish to bring you down.
Now more than ever we need to be reminded that through hard times and adversity, that we need to stay the course, work hard, keep moving forward. Believe in yourself and believe in hope, and believe that we'll come out on top again and come out strong. Ultimately before the end goal and end game is reached, certain steps must come in place, and certain things must happen, and certain tests must be passed by us as individuals in order to get the gift of the lesson from the hardship you're going through, individually or collectively.
So I share with all of you, stay strong, stay on the path, stay the course, and don't give up. Believe in yourself. Whatever it is, whatever hardship you're facing, whatever difficulties you're enduring and going through right now that weigh on your spirit, your heart, mind, and soul and make you feel weary, just don't give up. Because the best is still yet to come. The worst is over. Now we're going to get through this all together.
In your darkest hour in life or whenever you go through a tough time, remember to have faith, and to continue believing that you will get through it. So to help with that, this week's podcast is on fate: "What is fate, how to accept it, and what to do to change it." Fate is different than destiny. Certain things must happen to you or will happen to you that are predestined to help you grow, and that is fate. But you can change what fate brings to you by realizing that certain things happen (those things that are fated to happen), but you can still change the course of your life and direction, even your environment. So even though certain things happened, you can change your life still! Feel free to listen here:

Hope you enjoy this episode and for those that are on a spring break, have a restful and amazing week! I will be uploading a new episode every week, hopefully every Monday and sometimes Twice a week,depending on what's happening,and will be announcing the start of my youtube channel (@panneywei) in the near future as well. Onward and upward everyone!

Lots of love to you all!
