Re: Tell me one more time
No advice, but a couple of thoughts...
As much as we'd like to think otherwise, some things just aren't going to happen. Call it what you will -- destiny, karma, bad genes, etc -- many of us are left holding the bag and trying to reconcile reality with hopes and dreams. It often sucks, sometimes mightily so, and at those points we make a choice, which only after time will prove to be either be a good or bad one.
The inescapable fact is that change happens. We all (ok, the vast majority of us...) try to manage that change in a way that maximizes the good and minimizes the bad. But only the incredibly fortunate are able to achieve all good and no bad. Most of us settle somewhere in the middle. Never forget the old saying -- "better is the enemy of good enough."
I do wish you well in finding a true and rewarding course for the journey ahead and with the choices you face.
