Your DNA Is Not Your Destiny!

                                                              Happy New Year!


Happy New Year!  I have been technology-free for over a week and I took a nice long break over Christmas too!  I hope that you spent time making memories with your family and enjoyed every minute of it! 
I will be composing my annual new year's goal setting blogs as soon as possible.  In the meantime I wanted to share an intriguing website and opportunity with you.  Check out 23andMe genetic testing to find out more.  I know that I was very curious about my genotype, my ancestry, and my propensity towards certain conditions, illnesses, and potential diseases.  I have been enthralled with my results so I think that you will enjoy it too!  One of the things I found out is that I am a sprinter vs. a long-distance runner!  It may sound funny but finding this out has made me think about my workouts and what I'm really good at.  Maybe the simplest information can help you too?!
I will write more regarding New Year's Goals and challenges in the next two days.


  1. Happy New Year to you and Robert and the Schuller family.
    Blessings to all.

  2. Yes Donna, it is true how we are not all the same. Some, (I), have a propensity or inclination to be more a long-distance type (slower at times but patient I hope) or a sprinter (also a positive but in a different way) toward getting where one wants to be. I think it is gr8 to learn our type and recognize our spouse's and friend's types. Trying to go with a way that is not right for yourself, just to keep up with another person can lead to frustration or conflict, whereas understanding and accepting ourself and others can be enriching as we accept, learn and feed off eachother's best attributes. Blending our differences which are really often a small percentage of our relationship with another can be good! Yes, sometimes differences it can lead to frustration and conflict I know. But I also know, if we understand and accept and really think how most of our relationship with that person is or can be positive, we will let the differences be not something we need to change, but something to understand and grow with. All differences are opportunities to learn and help us (me) relate better to others so they and I can blend together and even laugh at our different natures!

    Happy New Year to you and yours
