Inspirational Romance Teens & Young Adult

Stella had always believed in fate. Ever since she was a little girl, she had been told that all things happen for a reason and that the universe had a plan for her. She had faith in the idea that her destiny was predetermined and that no matter what she did, everything would eventually fall into place. It was a comforting thought, and one that she clung to dearly as she made her way through life. She saw the world through a predestination lens, and she tried her best to go with the flow and follow the path that had been laid out before her. Unfortunately, this didn’t always work out in her favor. There were times when she was faced with difficult decisions and she wasn’t sure which way to turn. She had to make choices, and sometimes those choices didn’t turn out the way she had hoped. One such instance happened when she was in her early twenties. She had been offered a job in a new town, but the salary wasn’t exactly what she had expected. She felt like it was too low, and she was hesitant to accept it. However, she felt like this was the path that the universe had laid out for her, and so she decided to take it. The job wasn’t great, but it was enough to get by. She worked hard and did her best, but she couldn’t shake the feeling that things weren’t going the way she had hoped. She felt like she was stuck in a rut, and she couldn’t seem to get out of it no matter how hard she tried. She didn't have a boyfriend, and her mom was sick. She worked to support her. She was always stressed, but she always had faith. One day, while she was walking to work, she stumbled across a small shop that she had never noticed before. The shop was filled with all sorts of items, from books to jewelry to artwork. She felt like it was a sign, and so she decided to go inside and take a look around. The shopkeeper, an elderly woman, welcomed her warmly and invited her to browse the shop. Stella was mesmerized by all the items, and she couldn’t help but feel like this was exactly where she was meant to be. She asked the shopkeeper if she could work there, and the woman agreed without hesitation. Stella worked at the shop for the next few years, and she loved every minute of it. She was able to connect with the customers in a way that she had never been able to before, and she quickly developed a loyal clientele. She felt like she was finally doing something that she was meant to do. Over time, Stella’s faith in fate strengthened. She had seen firsthand how the universe had guided her to the path that she was meant to take, and she felt a deep sense of peace and contentment. She had gone through life believing in fate, and now she was living it. As the years passed, Stella’s shop became more successful. She had made a name for herself in the community, and people started coming from all over to visit her shop. She was doing what she loved, and she was finally living out her destiny. Stella was happy, and she was grateful for the life she had been given. She knew that everything in life happened for a reason, and she was thankful that the universe had guided her to the path she was meant to take. She looked forward to what the future held, and she was certain that it would be even better than she ever could have imagined.

A few months later:

Stella had always believed in fate. It helped her get where she was now. The CEO of a successful business. But with all her work, she had no time to devote to a relationship and be loyal. She worked hard and made sure that her business was as successful as possible, but she was lonely in her life. That was until one day when Stella took a chance. She signed up for an online dating site and filled out the profile that asked about her passions, the things she enjoyed doing, and the people she wanted to meet. Stella was soon inundated with messages from all kinds of men asking her on a date. To her surprise, she actually enjoyed dating. She was able to meet a variety of people and had a great time. One particular man caught her eye. His name was Matt and he seemed like the perfect guy for her. Stella wanted to take it slow with Matt, so they decided to meet up for dinner. Dinner went well and they talked for hours. They both had a lot in common and had fulfilling conversations.

After a few weeks of dating, Stella was sure that she was in love with Matt. She felt like their relationship was meant to be, and she was now a believer of fate. She felt as if all of her hard work and dedication to her business had finally paid off. Stella now enjoyed her life even more than before. She still managed her business with skill and intelligence, but she also made sure she had enough time to date. Matt was a regular presence in her life and she couldn't help but smile when she saw him. It seemed as though Stella had finally found her happily ever after. Thanks to fate, she had discovered her dream guy and had the perfect balance of romance and business in her life. Stella had finally figured out that she could have it all. Stella was blessed with a life of joy. After marrying her beloved love-of-her-life Matt, they were blessed with twins, Autumn and Summer. Her life has been completed, and she will never be lonely again. She was profoundly grateful for her fate, counting her blessings each and every day.

This is a nice, warm hug of a story and it's pleasant to have a happy ending. I feel like Stella could have a more interesting arc if she didn't always believe in fate. Like, if at the beginning she aggressively applies for high-salary jobs and doesn't get any of them, but then a low-paying job comes to her and she finds it rewarding. That could be the start of her realization that she doesn't need to be so forceful, and gradually she learns that the more she relinquishes control, the more fulfilling her life becomes.

Nice story. Although breaking up the first section into a few more paragraphs would make it easier on the eyes 😅 Loved the twins' names, v cute.
