We are all part of the cosmic world. We are responsible for the experiences we have, the people we interact with and the situations we create. But there is also an element of some things being pre-ordained, which we have no control over. If we experience misfortune, we blame our luck and curse our existence even. But in truth, the hardship was sent our way so we may learn from it. It breaks the bubble of our reality. If we are honest enough to acknowledge that, we are given the strength and opportunity to put things right. The universe will stay in step with us if we stay in tune with it. And if we do, it allows us to perform our own little miracles. A child can never smile too much. And we are all children of god. And god loves a trier.
