Before I say anything else, I want to greet the world:
A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!!
2012 is here, so much faster than what I would consider comfortable, at least where the 12-25 Life Blog is concerned. In terms of targets and expectations, I would say the first few months of the blog’s existence were mostly a fumble. I thought I started out strong, but then I got caught up with a lot of the technical side of blogging, especially SEO and the ‘prettifying’. I wanted a better logo and roll out more helpful material.
The more I learned the more I realized how little I really know. And then there was the writing that I had to get done in between the all the other things that my life demanded from me, like my job, and making time for my family and friends, getting retooled for the next phase of my life. To say that I got too little sleep since I started this blog is a gross understatement. I’m tired and frustrated about the pace of things but I am still in remarkably good spirits. I am overwhelmed but deep down inside I know I am headed in the general direction of my dreams. I know this because given a choice, I’d still do all over again.
One thing I learned about myself, is how much I enjoy writing, especially when I’m so invested in the topic. I realized that even if I have reached a nearly non-existent audience, I would still write. I find myself wishing I had more time to research my topics and more time to clean up my work. More time to work with video and still images. I really love doing this. Nothing can match the feeling when you know you’ve nailed it, and the piece you’ve just written is complete.
I know my semi-zombie state is taking away from the quality of my work. So I really want to start unloading some parts of my life that don’t quite give me the same sense of purpose. I need to let go of all the baggage that are on the whole weighing me down. So that should be my first order of business.
My commitment to myself and the public is that the 12-25 Life Blogs will be a blog worthy of the over a million readers, providing content that will uplift lives. This is what I have always intended 12-25 Life to be. This is the 12-25 Life’s mission. At 3 am, with very little prospect for sleep left, I vow it be my life’s purpose.
If there are people out there who might have a similar advocacy, I would like to propose that we explore the possibility of partnering to achieve this mission. I know this can best be achieved as a collaboration. This year I will actively build the team that will make the dream real. Find me or I’ll find you either way, it’s time to come together.
Here is my prophesy for the year:
2012 will be a year of disruption and meaningful change. 2012 will be a catalyst year for a profoundly radical global revolution. There will be a desperate struggle between the forces bent on maintaining the status quo of cut throat commercialism and a new world order that embraces a common good, sustainability and peace. It is best to decide which side you’re on. The nobler and more powerful of which will prevail and a new era of prosperity will begin.
I send out my prayers and blessing to the world:
May this year bring hope and health and plenty to everyone without exception! May God bless us all, even the atheists who reject this. May love bind us and lead us to the place we all long to be. Amen.
