Congratulations on finding your path!
I personally do believe in "destiny" or whatever you want to call it. I think the universe has plans and that while we can choose our own paths, we always arrive at certain pre-determined destinations at various points in our lives. I feel that every soul is born into the body that will help it learn the lessons it needs to learn in that lifetime. So I'm not at all surprised by what you said
