Character & Choice

I heard the most beautiful saying today from the most unlikely people. "Words become thoughts, thoughts become actions, actions become character and character? Character becomes destiny."
Of late, I've come to realize just how important one's character is. You can lose anything in life and still get through but if you lose your character, you'll have to go to hell and back to get it.
The materialistic parts of my life have long since overcome the important things in my life, leaving me in shackles in a cold, dark room. But I finally see a speckle of light shining through the cracks in the walls. Each ray of sunshine gives me strength, gives me hope that someday I'll get out of here. I've taken them for granted for so long that I barely know the meaning of family anymore. But I will find a way to get out of this rut because I'm starting to believe. How foolish was I, to make deals with the devil. 

Now I'm slowly climbing up my ladder of success, a path straightened out but still having its little bumps and crooks. Some of them straighten out from time to time or just revert back, all depending on the choices I make. We make our own destiny; with the approval of a mightier force of course.   

"As the different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea. So, O Lord, the different paths, which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee."
