To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?

It's Friday!! :) Need I say more? There is nothing that I love more than having my husband home with us for two whole entire days.

My blogging time lately has been interupted with some intense working out. I'll have more reviews on this coming soon, but let me just say that in the last three weeks I have lost 8 lbs with Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and 6-Week Six Pack. I'm so proud of myself!

Time for this week's question for my Day Zero Project - The 50 Questions that Will Free Your Mind:

To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?I'm not going to be very whimsical when answering this question, because I believe that everyone has control over their own lives. Sure, there are events in life which throw us off-course, like a job layoff or serious illness. We don't choose for the events to happen, but we do have control over how we take action over them.

There are often times when I sit back and look at everything I have, my loving husband and beautiful daughter that I ask, "How did I get here???" It's not that I didn't have control, it's just that it all seemed to happen so quickly. When I take the time to think about it though, everything that has happened has come with careful decision making and faith in God. My husband and I pray often, and I really do feel like God has helped us to make the right decisions for our family.

If someone had told me 10 years ago (when I was 15), that down the road I was going to fall in love with the guy sitting behind me in my honor's English class, move to Manhattan the day after college graduation, get married, move with my husband's job to Virginia and have a baby 9 months later I would have said "Ha. Yea right." But life is funny that way!! Because each of those things did happen, by decisions that we made together.

Basically I guess, if you don't take control over your own life, who is going to do it for you?
