Whenever you mention Destiny, you better get rid of that capital D - It Doesn't Matter

Fate, Destiny. Inevitable but I digress. Each step we take determines. Every choice, decision, action can and will change the course. Having the power of choice can frequently frustrate. It's much easier to sit back; watch the world go 'round. Or is it. It's harder to be miserable knowing you allowed it to happen, accepted your fate as disappointment is easier to overcome knowing you tried. My choice is to at least try. At least try.

RE: your post

Take care.

I don't think I believe in destiny, or predetermination. It's interesting cuz people talk about "if I could do things over again" how perfectly we'd do them. But if we did every thing over perfectly, we wouldn't have so many of the good things we have (like my kids) or characteristics, appreciations & even friends.

That's why I buy lottery tickets. At least I try. But for me the question I always ask myself is "Self, how come god never tells anyone to buy a pony?"

Think about that for awhile.

I came by to see how you were doing - at the end of August my wife was in a car accident and it took her some months to recover. I was not online much. She recovered completely, so it is nothing to worry about.

Well, I hope you are doing alright - and hope you'll send me a message to prove it.

Kind wishes, and all the best for 2008.

Hey Helen, long time no see...Hey, I want to invite you to a new site: FohBoh, (http://www.fohboh.com/?i=28chblcn8r176) the online networking site for the International Restauarnt Industry. It's got great information and interaction with restaurant professionals, executive chefs, videos of culinary techniques and recipe preparation, a vibrant wine community with internationally renowned somelliers and people like you and me just interested in food and drink. The site is worth checking out, and I think you'd find a great deal of value there for both yourself and your blog.

Have an awesome day!

I spell destiny with the same "d" that I spell disappointment with. The only difference is what you said about personal accountability. We can make a change and that is something The Grateful Dead & The Dead have taught me through their music. I should mention that this is a very beautiful blog and I am truly glad you have shown me the light--even though I hope I have been looking at it right..peace sister

I think of you when I find "Garcia" ties (on mega sale) for my husband.
