Make it a “better” year.
I’ve set a few goals for 2012, and with those goals I have plans to make 2012 a better year. Not necessarily better than 2011, but “better”.
Six months into the new job, a new home, and a new couch; it take the beginning of a year for me to sit back and assess. It’s ‘human’ to live our lives by milestones and paramounts as we move from joy to pain and back again. Making life “better” may be everyone’s hope, but few people are able to reach what people would consider better, and even when they do… they found out that better doesn’t mean what they thought.
So my gain for better doesn’t consist of more furniture, sexier physique (things I thought I’d never type), or more money; but rather “better” in the sense of overall livelihood. What would make 2012 “better”
This January I’ve started to attempt and make for a better 2012. Maybe not with all I’ve done, but with perspective. I’m no longer on my way into a new position, nor am I on my way out. I am here in a place I call home. In a conversation I was having I struck upon a thought I’ve had before, but forgot to live.
Instead of looking to live every day like there’s something great coming, or as if I’m in line for a roller coaster that’s never coming. Live in the present, do as you should do in the moment what you’re thinking about doing tomorrow.
We don’t live forever, only now…
So rather than wait for what is coming in 2012. I’m planning for the worst and living for the best. Gonna keep 2012 packed with enough living for many other people to enjoy. This first month has been a blast and honestly it’s just getting started.
Jump on the train, join me and let 2012 be better.
There’s only two options. Better, or worse.
album of the month
Not a lot of albums came out in January that were worth talking about. I had to scratch the bottom of the barrel to find one that I really felt was worth putting on here that wasn’t from 2011. However I am excited about a few coming soon. (The Shins)
But do yourself a favor and buy the soundtrack to Midnight in Paris. Very good.
The album of the month is a refreshing folk duo from Sweden by the name of First Aid Kit. I might be falling in love with Folk music all over again because of these two. Laura Marling watch your back.
