I took my brother-in-law Nick on a 3.35 mile trail run/hike through Moss Park this morning.  He’s recently got into running, but has never been on a trail run until today!


As you might remember, Nick has had some trouble with a twisted ankle in the past, and when we started to run through the sand and dirt, he yelped, “Danger! Danger! Ankle!” Haha.  It cracked me up – but don’t worry.  He survived.


Trail running is a lot harder than road running, so we took a lot of walking breaks to cool off and enjoy the scenery.


We finished the 3.35 miles in 45:37.


When we came home, I decided to run another 1.65 miles on the sidewalk to round up to an even 5.0 miles.  I finished those miles at a 9:30/pace.  It was too hot to go any further!




Brown rice with kidney beans and alfredo sauce.  I impressed college-student Nick with my ability to make an insanely delicious meal for pennies.


And roasted broccoli:


Question of the Day:  Nick and I were discussing the concepts of karma, destiny, and free will on our run today (because that’s what kind of brother- and sister-in-laws we are).  I said that I believe in karma – meaning you get what you deserve, good or bad – but not really the big concept of destiny.  I think of destiny as you are fated to achieve a goal or meet a certain person or be in the right place at the right (or wrong) time.  I guess I like to feel that I’m in control of my future and it’s not all planned out!


Do you believe in karma and destiny?



  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs May 13, 2010, 1:40 pm

    I’m the same as you – I think we make our own paths, and have total control (almost) of how our lives turn out. But I do feel that if I’m a good person, more good things will happen (and vice versa). Kinda like a ‘what goes up, must come down’…kind of…
    Sounds like you two had a good chat though!

  • Coco @ Opera Girl Cooks May 13, 2010, 1:43 pm

    I definitely believe in karma — sending out positive energy can only do good things for you!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) May 13, 2010, 1:44 pm

    I believe in free will. We have the choices to make but the choices we make will determine our ultimate fate. And I don’t really believe that just being a good person will get you good things. There are many good people who have terrible lives. And there are many terrible people who have amazing lives. But ultimately life is not what I’m concerned with. I’m concern with how I spend eternity.

    But then again I guess that’s why I’m a pastor. 🙂

  • Jessica @ How Sweet May 13, 2010, 1:44 pm

    I somewhat believe in karma, but really do believe we are in charge of our own destiny. I do believe in the law of attraction – if you believe it and surround yourself with it, it will happen!

  • Anna May 13, 2010, 1:44 pm

    Karma, yes. But I think I am one of about 3 people in this world who doesn’t believe that everything happens for a reason. Shiz happens, and it’s up to us to sort out the pieces and derive meaning and purpose from it all.

  • Chelsea May 13, 2010, 1:44 pm

    Just a question on Kharma….if you get what you deserve good or bad, then why do nice guys always finish last? Maybe even though its one’s deserving effort to finish first since they are the nice guy, it ends up being their destiny to finish last. So…nice guys finish last because mean guys cant handle it, so I guess kharma works out in the end….sorry just talking myself through this philosophical (yes I had to look at how you spelled it) stuff…never can wrap my head around it.

    • Caitlin May 13, 2010, 1:49 pm

      thats true… its hard to think about karma because bad things do happen to good people. but maybe what you think is initially a bad thing is part of the path to the good thing? like, sometimes NOT getting something leads the something great that you couldn’t have had otherwise.

      • Hedda May 13, 2010, 4:40 pm

        I agree with you, Caitlin.
        I do not think that I developed anorexia because I am a bad person, nor do I view the eating disorder in a completely negative light these days. Of course, I do not wish it upon even my worst enemy, but it has taught me a lot and changed me as a person. It might seem like a weird thing to say about something that could have killed me, but it is true.
        As you say, what might seem like a bad thing can turn into something positive in the end.
        It is also about finding out what you view as good things, is it a car? High-paid job? Being surrounded by good people?

    • Julie May 13, 2010, 2:55 pm

      I think karma will get us in our next life…like if you’re a nice guy in this life and you “finish last” so-to-speak, then in your next life all good things will happen to you…like you’ll get everything you deserve, or if you’re a jerk to everyone in this life, people will be a jerk to you in your next life…know what I mean? Does that make sense??

  • Lauren @ Dragonflies Journey May 13, 2010, 1:45 pm

    I very much believe in karma. And if my husband were here he could write a book on karma and destiny. He’s an expert on how to explain it. But the more I got to know him prior to marriage the more I started to believe in it. And as time goes on I notice it more and more in life.

  • Jess May 13, 2010, 1:49 pm

    I think that we make our own decisions that influence our life, but I also believe there is someone or something that puts certain people in our lives. When I think about everything that had to happen for me to meet my husband, it’s pretty amazing.

    • Julie May 13, 2010, 2:57 pm

      I totally believe that too, that there is something that puts certain people into our lives. I totally believe that everything happens for a reason and whatever’s meant to be will be.

  • Rachel May 13, 2010, 1:50 pm

    I’m not sure if I 100% believe in karma, but I really hope that it exists. Does that make sense?

    As far as destiny, I think there is an end point laid out for all of us, but the journey to get to that end point is up to us.

  • Sarah for Real May 13, 2010, 1:50 pm

    I was JUST talking about Karma the other weekend! My mean and grouchy neighbor was having a yard sale and it rained on her, total Karma!

    I don’t believe in a firm destiny, but rather that God has a big picture plan, but how you get there is up to you.

  • Kelly May 13, 2010, 1:51 pm

    I’m not sure. I’d like to, but I’m also kind of skeptical when it comes to things like that. In a way I kind of think karma is not really someone else giving you what you deserve (good or bad) but yourself subconsciously doing it.

  • Michele May 13, 2010, 1:55 pm

    Karma — I do like to think that good and bad things come back to us, but I wouldn’t call it karma. It leaves too much open to question — and as so many people are saying, bad things happen to good people (car crashes, plane crashes, child abuse, random muggings, etc.). In general, I think we sort of reap what we sow. And when the bad things happen to good people, we have to take what we can learn in those situations and use them for the betterment of ourselves and others. Every situation can be a learning experience. Although we can’t control our lives, we certainly have a choice to make in how we deal with every situation.

  • Ilana May 13, 2010, 1:55 pm

    Primarily, I believe all things are possible – which, to me, means that karma and destiny are absolutely potentially possible, but also potentially not possible. I think there’s SOMETHING out there that interconnects all of us, but “fate,” “karma,” and “destiny” are all things that I think are too specific to define what it really is. That said, I have no problem trying to promote “good karma” by doing good unto others, and usually it pays off for me.

  • Tina May 13, 2010, 1:57 pm

    As a Christian I do believe God has a plan for my life, but not necessarily that it is all laid out and I have no choice. I can choose to follow options set out for me by him or not. I guess I more believe that I my life is my decision and God is going to work to bring the best out of those decisions if I trust him. So kind of a mix of karma and destiny all in one?

    Trail running is hard! That is how I always ran way back when. Now I don’t run at all. But there were reasons for that.

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday May 13, 2010, 1:58 pm

    You should try arborio rice. You can get the creamy consistency of the alfredo sauce without having to add alfredo sauce. Short grain rice kicks ass.

  • Sarah May 13, 2010, 1:59 pm

    I do not believe in Karma. I believe in free will to a certain extent. I believe that the decisions that we make are never going to be outside the will of God. Good or Bad.

  • Evan Thomas May 13, 2010, 2:00 pm

    I don’t know if I believe in karma. I’m so much more apt to believe in hard work and rewards. If you put your effort towards something, you can achieve it.

    Is Nick Kristien’s brother or a sister’s husband?

    • Caitlin May 13, 2010, 2:18 pm

      Nick is Kristien’s step brother (they have totally different parents).

  • Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) May 13, 2010, 2:00 pm

    I believe in God but I also think that bad things happen to good people and vice versa which makes me doubt karma. Destiny, however… I think there are things that are “meant to be”, but I also think we have the ability to change those things.

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) May 13, 2010, 2:02 pm

    i definitely believe in those philosophies, but within reason. have you read the poem “invictus”? i think you’d like it 🙂

  • Johanna B May 13, 2010, 2:03 pm

    I believe in Karma but then I grew up Presbyterian and we’re supposed to believe in predestination.

  • Hedda May 13, 2010, 2:11 pm

    I believe in karma. I am convinced that if you do good actions, both to yourself and people around you, good things will come to you. If you live based on values such as kindness, tolerance, respect you increase your opportunity to live a good life. I am not saying it will land you a high-paid job, but that you will experience love and happiness in other, more non-materialistic ways.

    I am not quite sure if I believe in destiny, but you know..who knows?! I do feel like there has been what one can call destiny in my recovery. I was just surfing around at glamour.com when I found a link to your blog, which helped me participate in something meaningful and positive. Your blog got me in touch with other beautiful persons who again has meant a lot for me making all the progress I have.
    So, Caitlin, I do not know what to believe 🙂

  • Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter May 13, 2010, 2:21 pm

    I think I fell in love with the rice and beans 😀

  • Heather May 13, 2010, 2:21 pm

    As a Christian I believe God has a plan for my life, but that i also ahve free will to choose, make mistakes, etc. Sometimes I do the wrong thing for me or what God wants me to do though, so i don’t feel like it’s predsetination or anything. As far as Karma, I call it more “what goes around comes around” and there are consequences for all our actions!

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) May 13, 2010, 2:25 pm

    I don’t necessarily believe in the spiritual idea of karma but do think that we get back whatever we put into the universe. If you’re working toward good things, you’ll get good results.

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie May 13, 2010, 2:27 pm

    I do believe what goes around comes around in alot of instances but I don’t really think of it as Karma or destiny. Since I’m a firm Jesus believer I do know that there are consequences for your actions but they aren’t necessarily all played out in this world.

    Sometimes it’s hard to ignore the jerks who somehow come out on top in this world.

  • Marianne May 13, 2010, 2:32 pm

    I don’t believe in karma or destiny. End of story. Karma implicitly says that if something bad is happening to you, it’s because you did something bad to deserve it.

    There’s no way I can be on board that all people who are suffering in the world did something bad to deserve it. Take Chernobyl (just a random example). Many people died. Many more suffered terrible injuries, and for years later, people have been born with bad birth defects, and not received proper care. I don’t think all of those people did something bad to deserve it – and for many of these people, there simply was no happy ending.

  • Michelle May 13, 2010, 2:33 pm

    DEFINITELY believe in karma. As far as destiny goes, I believe that life presents us with a path with many intersections and forks, and we are in control of how we turn on those intersections.

  • Lisa May 13, 2010, 2:38 pm

    I definitely believe in Karma as I am a Buddhist. I also believe in instant Karma. 😉

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance....after a 100+ Pound weight loss!!! May 13, 2010, 2:41 pm

    I totally believe in Karma!!! I didn’t until I met my husband and he talked about it a lot and I started to see how it worked……….

  • Corinne (breathe and savor) May 13, 2010, 2:41 pm

    ooooooo such a Lostie/Flash Forward convo 🙂 I could not agree with you more. I do NOT like the idea of destiny…that we are destined to do something or BE someone or have our life turn out a certain way. I do, however, agree with perfect timing: meeting someone because you were at the right place at the right time 🙂 However this happens all day everyday…it is up to us to SEE what is in front of us to make it all worth while.

  • kalli@fitandfortysomething May 13, 2010, 2:42 pm

    i think that is a great run! yes i believe in karma! more like what you put out-you get back……kind of like operation beautiful!

  • RiverTrekker May 13, 2010, 2:51 pm

    I didn’t realize this was called “trail running”,I do this all the time. I always labeled it hiking even though I ran alot of the time. Thanks for this post,it’s just my thing.

  • Camille May 13, 2010, 2:51 pm

    Glad you guys had fun! Lunch looks great 🙂

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers May 13, 2010, 2:56 pm

    I believe everything happens for a reason- whether it’s something you have control over or something that you don’t- it still happens for a reason. I guess in that sense I believe in karma- if you do good, good things happen. I don’t know about destiny or fate though- I like to think we have an impact on what directions our lives go.

  • Julie May 13, 2010, 2:58 pm

    This is a quote from “Can’t Hardly Wait” with Jennifer Love Hewitt from the 90s (the 90s rocked) “Fate can only take you so far, once you’re there, it’s up to you to make it happen”. I totally believe in this.

  • Lindsay May 13, 2010, 3:01 pm

    To use an ultra-cheesy John Mayer quote:
    “everything happens for a reason is no reason not to ask my self if I am living it right”

    Basically, I do somewhat believe in fate/destiny but don’t really buy into the whole thing where there is some perfect plan that we are supposed to be following, if that makes sense.

  • Katheryn May 13, 2010, 3:03 pm

    I don’t believe in destiny, but I do believe in karma. But with karma, sometimes what is coming to us won’t happen for years and years, or even until after we die.

  • megan May 13, 2010, 3:06 pm

    as other commenters said, I’m a Christian so I believe that God’s got the ultimate plan. I’m working on submitting to Him and trusting Him to lead/guide my life. It’s really a comforting, peaceful thought to know that He has a bigger plan in mind. It’s seriously the only way I’ve found that makes sense to be able to explain the bad things happen to good people question, that karma really just can’t explain.

  • Kellie May 13, 2010, 3:07 pm

    I’m a Christian so I believe that God has a plan for me. I might not know what it is, but He does.

  • Nicole, RD May 13, 2010, 3:15 pm

    I definitely believe in karma and destiny. I’m not sure how it all plays out, but I’m still all for the golden rule and figuring it’ll get me ahead in life 🙂 So far, so good!

  • kristi May 13, 2010, 3:25 pm

    I totally belive in Karma-everytime something bad happens to me I try to think back at what I have done that I would deem bad and I do the same when something good happens to me. Let me tell ya-you learn from the bad things and you do more of the good things after a while.

  • Juli D. May 13, 2010, 3:27 pm

    I absolutely believe in Karma – to the extent that the more good you put in the world the more good you will see. Now, even if you lived perfectly, bad things would still happen, because that’s life. Good and bad. But I firmly believe MORE good will happen if you put good out there instead of bad.

  • Shauna May 13, 2010, 3:34 pm

    I don’t believe in karma because like what was mentioned what about when good things happen to good people. Like the man that was good and did great things all his life and then got hit by a random truck, that’s karma? I don’t think so. Karma/God/Everything happens for a reason etc. These are just things that people make up because they want to feel good about a situation or they want to explain how something happens in life. Me. I just say it’s the circle of life and it happens however it happens. Don’t need an explanation.

    • Shauna May 13, 2010, 3:35 pm

      I meant what about when good things happen to bad people…

  • Emmanuelle May 13, 2010, 3:37 pm

    I believe that what goes around comes around, yes, but I do believe also that we are in control of what happens to us. I don’t like the idea of not having control over my life! (but then again I’m an atheist :-))

  • Taysa May 13, 2010, 3:46 pm

    I can’t say I believe in either. I believe people have a certain degree of control over things (and maybe that degree is quite large) but ultimately there are so many things that are out of our control. However, that doesn’t mean I think people should just sit back, let life happen to them and treat other people like crap. I believe in living with intention.

  • Amanda (Amanda "Runs") May 13, 2010, 3:57 pm

    I sorta believe in Karma (or is it Kharma?0 but I’m not an extremist. I only be;lieve when I remember… I think i’m somewhat in control, like with food. If I eat an apple I’ll have more energy than if I eat a doughnut. But not too much control like we’re pieces on a gameboard or anything and we can’t pick where we go next..

  • jess May 13, 2010, 4:06 pm

    is nick single?!
    please say yes.

    • Caitlin May 13, 2010, 4:09 pm

      haha yes he is!

  • Helen May 13, 2010, 4:33 pm

    Its great that you get on well with your brother in law. I do believe in karma and often think that what goes around coms around. I do try hard to keep control of my own destiny but it’s often very hard!

  • Joanna May 13, 2010, 4:45 pm

    I have a hard time getting behind the concept of karma, given the example of my best friend. She is probably the world’s most selfless individual: a vegetarian ivy league PhD grad who pledges quietly without ostentation to save the world, gives herself wholly to her family (including hosting a dying aunt while who was getting chemo while my bff was writing her discertation/still taking experiments for her research), and giving every spare moment (which are few) to her friends, family, and volunteering. The positivity that she expels does not warratn the heartache and bad luck she has endured throughout her lifetime. And that’s no exaggeration. I can say for myself, that I have had years of anguish/bad luck (pockets of bad luck that have turned for the better), but I cannot judge whetehr this is karmicly warranted… but for her? No. She deserves better karma, and I would hate for somebody to ever tell her to try harder to be good and good things will magically come to her.

  • Lindsay @ The Ketchup Diaries May 13, 2010, 4:48 pm

    I think I believe a little of both. You certainly get what you put in (eventually), but sometimes I think things are little more controlled than that too. I definitely think you can be in the right place at the right time. I think my religious beliefs play into the fact that I don’t believe I control everything.

  • Diana (Mymarblerye) May 13, 2010, 4:56 pm

    i definitely believe in karma…if you give off good vibes and positive energy then that force will pull the same towards YOU. I don’t believe in destiny…you have the power to change everyday…the only ‘destiny’ i try to believe in is the hopeless romantic/sappy “you were made for me” type of thing. 🙂

  • Kelly @ Healthy Living With Kelly May 13, 2010, 5:13 pm

    I definitely believe in karma. 100%…the good and the bad. But I am not sure I believe in destiny because I think we have the power over our choices that effect the outcomes of out lives.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) May 13, 2010, 5:17 pm

    That is tricky…I believe in kharma, but more as an end result to life. I don’t think you always “get what you deserve” right away. There are many people that are good and work hard for things and nothing the are trying to achieve ever really works out. I don’t believe in destiny. We are totally in control of our fate, but again it is more of an end result not an immediate thing. Free will plays a huge part of that. I do believe in soul mates, but I don’t necessarily believe that you find them here. I could go on and on. Have you ever seen “The Fountain”? Great movie and it definitely gets me thinking about this every time I watch it!

    • Theodora May 13, 2010, 8:42 pm

      I totally agree with you — I think karma doesn’t always manifest itself immediately (for the good, or the bad), but I think it all balances out eventually.

  • Jenn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) May 13, 2010, 5:17 pm

    I was just thinking about beans + rice last night. That looks SOOO good!

    I believe in free will, that we can influence our fate and our destinies. Sometimes we have no control over circumstances and the directions our lives go, but we do have control over the way we react and adapt. 🙂


  • Michal May 13, 2010, 5:46 pm

    If I could discuss philosophy every time I ran, I’d be a marathoner in no time! 🙂
    I believe in the complexity of free will in a universe that we can’t control. That is… we do make our own fate, but there are factors in our lives/society that create the options we choose from. So… what we have is a limited sort of free will, based on what our “open options” are.

  • Morgan @ Life After Bagels May 13, 2010, 6:06 pm

    Oh gosh, that’s DEEP! I think the extent of my discussions with my brother in law have gone “I like beer” oh good I like beer too!

    I’m the same as you. I believe that if you’re a good and kind person that great things will come your way. I also believe that you control your own fate, as in – if you want something, go out and get it!

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) May 13, 2010, 6:18 pm

    I am a HUGE believer in karma – ie. what goes around comes around 🙂

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople May 13, 2010, 6:32 pm

    I do believe that all things that happen are meant to happen. I have free will and can choose what to do and what not to do. But in the end, what happens was meant to be.

  • *Andrea* May 13, 2010, 7:47 pm

    aw what a cutie your bro-in law is 😉
    the meal is definitely college budget friendly!!! i am going through my savings account so rapidly now with senior week approaching. i will have to make this and buy some alfredo pronto!

    i definitelyyyyyyyyy believe in KARMA! and destiny i am unsure of other than heaven

  • Dana May 13, 2010, 8:31 pm

    Im a firm believer in Karma but not destiny if that makes seance.. I believe all our actions have effects. Im not a believer in ‘destiny’ though..

    Trail runs are the best! I use to live in upstate NY and they had some awesome trails there. I would always get sore in the weirdest places…I want to run outside here but im in FL and you cant run here 🙁

    Dana <3

  • Nicole Y. May 13, 2010, 8:45 pm

    I believe we have free will, although sometimes things are just beyond our control.. However, If the definition of karma is you do good, you get good back.. you do bad, you’ll get bad back, then I definitely don’t believe in karma. For instance my Mom. She was an amazing, caring, giving person who suffered for 3 years with terminal cancer (after beating cancer once already) and her life was taken by it. I watched her lose the ability to walk, talk, and then breathe.. NOTHING she did in her life made her deserving of that fate, she should have had nothing but good karma coming her way and that’s not what happened. so many GOOD people are fated to terrible tragedies, and other HORRIBLE live out these great lives devoid of conflict and suffering. I don’t know… Good discussion!

  • Gracie @ Girl Meets Health May 13, 2010, 8:50 pm

    Okay first of all – the woods in the first picture of Nick looks straight out of Twilight!

    Secondly – I just saw your recipe from this morning and I’m dying. Cereal Crumb Cake…seriously? Must try stat.

    Aaaand lastly…would it be crazy to say that I believe in karma, destiny, AND fate? Because I do! For example, I believe that I have the free will to make one decision or the other, but God already *knew* what decision I’d make. Does that make sense…? And as far as karma goes, you can only get so far in life doing crappy things before it comes back and bites you in the butt. That’s why I think that integrity is the most important characteristic a person can have.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing May 13, 2010, 8:50 pm

    I do believe in karma AND fate. At least, I think certain people are destined to be together..

  • Kelly May 13, 2010, 8:58 pm

    I agree with you about destiny…not sure about karma. I do think people who do the wrong thing eventually get what they deserve, but sometimes I see bad things happening to really good people…

  • Rebecca May 13, 2010, 9:12 pm

    As a culture, we are in a phase where it’s “en vogue” to overestimate our control over our own lives. “If I believe it, it will happen.” “If I want it, it will come.” “If I’m positive, I’ll have positive things happen to me.”

    This is very “uncool” to say, but those are all lies. It is too bad that we are choosing to go on this path because we end up thinking people who are rich and powerful DESERVE that because they must have “wanted, believed, been positive, really tried.” This is not always true.

    Unfortunately, this also leads to the belief that those who are disadvantaged are only poor/lonely/sick/ because they didn’t believe or try enough. That is vastly untrue. In a society that continues to create inequalities, it’s really destructive to believe that those at the bottom were just less deserving/getting their dose of “karma.”

    I think we need to consider the implications of these beliefs. If you think you are where you are because you “deserved” it, what are you saying about those with less success? That they are less deserving?

    I fear that this is a very, very selfish and classist way to see the world.

    • Stephanie May 14, 2010, 8:22 am

      This is an interesting perspective, but I don’t think it’s fair to say that this is a selfish and classist way to see the world. There will always be sad or negative things that happen to great people, but nobody is saying they deserve these thigns. Yes unfortunately not everyone is given the same opportunities in life (money, family,connections, etc…), but there are plenty of people in this world who have started with nothing and creating amazing successful lives. I don’t think there is anything wrong with believing that you are where you are in life because you deserve it. Personally I have worked really hard to get to where I’m at and I think positive thinking has helped me get there. Obviously thinking positive thoughts alone won’t get you any where in life, but you can’t really call those statements and thoughts “lies.” I think there are a lot of negative people in this world who choose to settle/wallow in self pity/jealousy and think they can’t get certain things or accomplish certain things. Positive thinking could do a world of good for these people.

    Wow that trail looks beautiful. Yes, I do believe in karma and destiny. I think you are and you get, what you put out in this world if that makes any sense.

    i believe in destiny + karma 100% ! sometimes i think i should believe in destiny less, like you said, and feel more in control of my life. but i don’t (at the moment)

    I don’t believe in karma. I’ve been reading a book about the modern global slave trade called “Not for Sale” (check it out). Millions of adults and children have been subjected to horrific atrocities, like being forced to prostitute themselves, become child soldiers, etc. These crimes are not the result of anything the victims have done but occur because of perpetrators’ greed.

    Also, did you know that in some cultures, women try to rack up enough good karma in hopes of being born a male in their next life? craziness.

    I believe in karma all the way… what goes around, comes around. Not so much destiny… I think we all have certain paths we are supposed to take, but we make the choices to get there.

    I can’t say that I believe in karma or destiny, actually. I think that good things happen to people who do bad things and bad things happen to people who do good things. I would like to believe that the people who do bad things will get what they deserve sooner or later but that doesn’t always happen. I also think that you can make your life what you want it to be and there’s no one chosen path for each person. That path changes with each decision made so it can’t really be seen as destiny, just consequences.

    And I have to say how YUMMY that looks! What a great idea. We will be trying that very soon at our house 🙂

    I believe in karma but not destiny. Although quite often I joke with people I’ll never win the lottery as I was put on this earth to work till I die 🙂
