Another revolution around the sun has completed.

The year 2010 is coming to an end. Sounds so futuristic, doesn't it? Especially when it is pronounced twenty-ten.

This past year has been one of the most significant of my life. I've learned more and experienced more this past year than I have in the last 10 years of living. Not only the good, but the bad and the ugly. Clint Eastwood shout out for my pops. With the good times come the bad, and the only way to get through the bad times is with a positive attitude and, the secret to learn from the negative experiences. And I have learned a tremendous amount about life, myself, and others.

When it comes down to it, people seem to really only care about one thing- themselves and how they are perceived by others. AKA the ego. I'm not an exception either, this is just a part of what we are. We only have an identity for ourselves through others. If you think of everything about yourself, who you are, you will come to find that you only think of yourself in terms of other. It's not a bad thing to really explore this idea, of who you really are deep down and what your true motivations are.

Too many people don't follow what makes them happy, what inspires them to be creative. Instead we get this idea planted in our head from a very young age that success equals mass amounts of money and power, with one way to get there. So we chase this idea without looking back. From Elementary to High School, to College, to a job we aren't happy doing until this so called success comes. Sometimes we forget that it's not this "success" that we need to keep striving for, this ultimate goal that is promised because at some point we realize it's like a cartoon with the plunger stuck to the forehead and the object of desire tied at the very end of the handle, dangling right on front of our face but just out of reach.
