Love of your fate — Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens

flower2

Nietzsche was the one who did the job for me. At a certain moment in his life, the idea came to him of what he called ‘the love of your fate.’ Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, ‘This is what I need.’ It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment—not discouragement—you will find the strength is there. — Joseph Campbell, from  A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living (Collected Works of Joseph Campbell)
