Feeling Proud/Fate

Edited because I sounded (I swear unintentionally) like a conceited bitch. My apologies.

What have you done that you're proud of? Do you ever feel like you were 'fated' to do it?

 Two years ago, I started off a forum, for writers, artists, musicians, actors and creative people in general. (we're mainly between 16 and 30, but there are 13 year old members, right up to 60 year old members) I thought it could be 'helpful'. It's two years old today, and I'm feeling just *so* proud. It's brought new friends together, helped out a lot of people with creativity, with real life problems, homework, and with celebrating the good times. I honestly don't know how I would have survived the past two years without it. It's not a perfect forum. It's only got 400 members in total. But I love it anyway.

And it's making me think... at the time, it was a 'crazy' random idea that I came up with, and did almost on the spur of the moment. Just a sudden amazing urge to do it. (I thought about it for about two days). What if I hadn't done it? Or was it just a natural thing for me to have done based on my previous experiences? I'd made yahoo groups and been moderators of other forums before... I really am wondering where I'd be now, where the other members of the forum would be now, if we hadn't had the forum... And then I think... would we just have found substitutes for it because it was something we needed? I don't really believe in Fate, but... I don't know. Something about it seems... I'm not really sure how to describe it.

What have you done that has made you feel proud and you can't believe you were the one to start it off? What about things that you are horrified to think about what would have happened if you hadn't done what you did? Have you ever just suddenly had an urge to do something, and it turned out fantastically?
