This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
In the early hours of the morning (given that I'm up basically all night) I found myself ruminating over the concept of fate once more. Years ago I used to be very, if not desperately adamant, that things just happen. There's no meaning. Zero. I hated the idea of fate, the notion that your life is planned ahead in time by some unknowable force or entity. I found little point in living if such an idea were true, as that would mean there is no free will.
Now obviously today my belief system has changed substantially. Do I believe every aspect of my life is guided by fate and that I have no choice? Not at all.
However, I believe that there have been events in my life that were undoubtedly fated to happen to me. But how I react to said events is all up to me. It's just something I've come to accept as fact, and it's one I'm comfortable to accept now. The benefit of sentience and reflection have caused to me to see things from the past as not just a random sequence from a disjointed life, but a stepping stone. Leading to some future event that is meant to happen, but it was up to me to experience it in my own way and evolve from it as much as was possible at that time. I have discovered that when you are doing something you feel you must do, there is a certain sense of absolute fulfillment and commitment that comes from what you are doing. It's something you register from the center most point of your soul as right. And when you embrace it is when things begin to truly fall into place. Like puzzle pieces really.
It is something we all have the potential is recognize. You'll know it when it happens. If ever. For many, it never happens.
It is extremely fortunate for me that I can see it now. It is part of how I got where I am today.
