gorali - גורלי or hagoral sheli - הגורל שלי


Explanation:
destiny = goral גורל
my = sheli שלי

my destiny = הגורל שלי

and also

my destiny = gorali גורלי

both forms are acceptable and mean the same thing.
אין כאן מה להסביר, לדעתי.
הגורל שלי = גורלי = my destiny.

agree  John Kinory (X): I prefer 'gorali', where there is no confusion with gorali-fateful.
