Life is like...

Wow it's been over a year since I've posted? I guess I've been a little busy.

So I was driving to work today, that song Crazy was on the radio and for some reason I noticed the lyrics, even though I've heard them 1000 times:

"Who do you think you are?
Ha Ha Ha, bless your soul
You think you're in control?"

And that got me thinking about how people have a such a strong desire to feel in control of their lives. I won't take anything away from Forrest Gump, life is somewhat like a box of chocolates - but I prefer to think of it as being like BlackJack. The game is designed to make you feel like you have some control of your destiny. You have to know when to double down, if you expect to have any chance to win. The reality is, though, that there's hardly anything to the game. Even when making all the right moves, the only thing that makes you a winner is the cards.
