What Do You Hope To Accomplish in 2012?

“All of us are born for a reason, but all of us don’t discover why. Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It’s what you do for others.” Danny Thomas

The past ten years have been very interesting now that I look back on it. While attending college in the late 1990’s, I had aspirations to become a Movie/Television producer. I had visions of Capra, Hitchcock and Thalberg dancing in my head.  To make a long story short, those aspirations never took off.  I still have a desire to make a few movies, but I’m more grounded in that they don’t make em like they used to.  I had to get over this major stumbling block of wishing to have been around in another time be it the 18th century, early 20th or even the 24th.  I’ve gradually been learning to take life one day at a time.  Also after being a dedicated political activist from about 2001-2006 or so, I am not even going to be voting in 2012 nor working on any campaigns.  This will mark the first time that I have not voted since 1994.  I now consider myself an idealistic realist.  The solution is not in politics, but changing ourselves.

Now for the first time in a long time, I am starting to get somewhere.  As it turns out, I am a generalist in a world of specialists.  All my life I had the desire to play sports, but was never going to be good enough for one reason or another.  Maybe coaching is the way to go then.  I am also happier when helping others more than having things.  I wish I had the ability to have been a baseball or football player, but it was never going to happen.  So I focused on teaching fundamentals.  Doing animal rescues/transports  and observing coaches/teachers over the past two years helped me to realize that.  I would actually make a better coach or teacher than anything else.

Also over the past year or so after being too shy around girls in my teenage years and swearing off dating/marriage during most of my adult life, I have had the desire for a girlfriend and/or wife.  It is a long story, but I will trust God’s plan on this and everything else too.

I’ve also learned a good deal about my inner self in this past ten years:

I feel emotional pain, but choose not to show it
I am decisive and principled
I foster insecurities                                                                                                                                                                           I crave intellectual and spiritual growth
I am a good listener
I have a hard time asking for help
I am motivated mostly by the intrinsic
I forgive easily
