2012: An Awesome Year

Before I say anything else, I want to greet the world:

A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!!

2012 An Awesome Year

Self Assessment

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.

You’re a Winner

Gold Medal

Imagine you had won the following prize in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for your use. However, this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules.

The first set of rules would be:

Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you. You may not simply transfer money into some other account. You may only spend it. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.

The second set of rules:

The bank can end the game without warning; at any time. It can say, It’s over, the game is over! It can close the account and you will not receive a new one. What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right? Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right? You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?


Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can’t seem to see it.


timeEach morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us.  What we haven’t lived up that day is forever lost.  Yesterday is forever gone.  Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time….WITHOUT WARNING.

So, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about that, and always think of this:

Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and enjoy life! Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful life.

Start spending.
