Not Getting What You Want: What Could Be Better?

Monica Bhide's life hasn't gone in the direction she planned. She wanted to attend graduate school in India but her father insisted she go to the US. She studied to be an engineer but, as destiny would have it, she's now a food writer. Monica's story, "Undesigning a Life," is featured in the April edition of Washingtonian magazine and is an inspiration to all of us who find our lives filled with the unexpected.

My favorite quote from the piece, "If you get what your heart desires, it is good. If you don't, it is better."
