Seems like a stellar date to me...

I was over on Karen's blog Life of a Publisher and her post was "Have You Seen my Destiny?". She was talking about taking control of your own destiny and the responsibility for where you are headed. She had a great line..

I am a firm believer that life is all about the journey, but it never hurts to have a map in the glove box, just in case. Don't let others take control of your life, you're important and no one can get you where you want to go better than you. All you have to do is figure out where you want to be.

I loved this and it was very fitting. I am a firm believer in Destiny and fate. Heck, I wrote a whole book about it.
The Three Truths of Katie Talmadge
It was completely about taking control of your own destiny and not just letting the chips fall where they may. It was about being open to possibilities and to taking chances. Frankly, the publishing arena is nothing but taking chances. I take chances on what I write, who I send it to and whether the readers will love or hate what I worked so hard on. There is a reason that my blog is titled With A Little Luck...

Anyway, I agree with Karen about life being about the journey, but keeping a road map to back you up. Look for me, I'll be out the highway.

I'll be out on that highway too. I'll be the one with my nose stuck in my map... :-)

OH MY GOSH!!! I'm famous, somebody quoted me. This SOOO rocks!

Ser this is what happens when you aren't afraid to take on a challenge. I have been blogging sporadically for quite a while, but on my second day on Book Blog Tours I took up this challenge, and now I have been quoted.

I feel kinda weepy!!

I'd like to thank all of my fans, and fellow Bloggers...
