I know I have an unpopular stance here...and I'm certainly bringing it up against a tough crowd...but we can all differ in opinion without hating each other! Jeez...if I asked who you might want to see for the next president...I'm sure you'd be amazed who sides with who...and who would end up in a pi$$ing match! But, as long as we attack the ideas expressed, and not the person who expressed them personally...I think there's so much insight to be gained from a site like this one. In the end, it's up to each and every reader to make up his or her own mind. Like in real life everywhere...some just have to go through things on their own to learn...others learn by other's experiences.

Who amongst us...including myself...hasn't made mistakes or had successes along the way? It's really what you do with those mistakes and successes that counts.
I like this post.

again...absolutely (see dynimagelv, we agree on stuff...esp. the part about the beer ). in the end, i am pretty sure all our sparring ends up w/ the same amicable conclusion: people need to make decisions that suit them and then make the best of where those decisions takes them.

personally, i choose to enjoy my "mistakes"...they often lead to great stories (and sometimes scars...which i guess also lead to great stories)
