Kim Kardashian used Twitter to wax philosophic in an apparent reference to her brief marriage to Kris Humphries, with references to "mistakes" and "veering off course."

In a message posted Monday, the reality star and prolific tweeter said: "Maybe our mistakes r what make our fate, w/out them what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn't b who we are."

There were no follow-up tweets and the posting was sandwiched between messages promoting her sister Kendall's Sweet 16 special on E! and the arrival of the family's new Christmas card.

Kim Kardashian has opened up in recent weeks about her approach to love and relationships following her shocking split from Humphries after just 72 days or marriage. In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, she indicated she needs to be more "realistic" about her relationships and "not live in a fairy tale."
