Sometimes it seems there are just two types of women.  There are destiny’s darlings, those lucky ones sent into the world prepared and primed for this lifetime — born knowing their destiny.  you hear about such women; they always knew they were meant to create, to lead, to mend broken lives or broken bones; to perform, to teach, to guide a thoroughbred to a first-place finish.

Sometimes I wonder if I was born to be a “destiny’s darlings” and life events redirected my choices and I became one of those women Sarah described as “doomed from our kindergarten report cards to go stumbling toward our destiny.  Often unfocused and fidgety.  Tendency to stare dreamily into space.  Side-tracked and scattered.  Stubborn!  Too sensitive for her own good; feelings easily hurt.  However, plays nicely with others.”

As I reflect on a conversation with a young woman I’m in agreeance with Sarah “We’d love to think that our life’s journey is linear, but we stumble in fits and starts on our way to authenticity.”

I’m afraid too many people, including myself, look to others for success proof answers to living a life that only we can design.
