Let not your heart be troubled if success, joy and prosperity have eluded you.
There are writers who pen million-selling books who never wrote a short story before book one - there's a famous rock guitarist I know of whose group had a hit record and at the time he'd only been playing guitar for six months, and just happened to write the groups' second single, which rose to number one. And there are also creative multi-talented individuals who create, create, create but go unnoticed, unnoticed unnoticed.
I have assembled a cornucopia of talent in a guest-post designed to welcome a new feeling along with a New Year. You are invited to join in - leave a link to a great post you have written on your blog by dropping the link in my "comments" area.
A Guest Post By People I Never Asked To Write One
Nadia El-Awady ::: "#2011 has taught me that sometimes the worst events of our lives are shortly followed by the best events of our lives."
"Why are you online anyway? How does being online relate to your hopes and dreams? Do you have a personal mission statement? What is it, and how are your online actions helping, or hindering you from achieving your personal mission?" ~ Aldon Hynes
"Sometimes we get too accustomed to being comfortable. We forget to strive, to grow and to reach out to our goals." ~ Mavis Nong
"Before we can design our best selves for 2012, we must take inventory of 2011. This sweet time, before the new year, gives us the perfect opportunity to look back over the year, see it globally and sort through it. When we're finished we'll see where we helped ourselves or others, and where we missed the mark. " ~ Cynthia Occelli
Bahraini blogger Mahmood Al Yousif shares this message with fellow netizens: “Temper your attacks and choose your battles wisely. Refrain from childish attacks on the very bridge who can help your cause. The last thing we want .. is to continue to shout at each other, rather than find the platform to engage and talk to each other to fix the situation and move forward.”
"My wish for you in 2012 is to have the guts and compassion to stand for what is true in your life and for the country. I wish for all of us the tenacity to see things through. I wish for clarity to see the forces that are blocking growth; to be aware what your “buttons” are so you can address them. I wish for you to feel the love that’s there for you unconditionally. It’s sweetly nourishing if you can allow yourself to feel it. Be aware of it. You can feel it most in stillness when your mind is quiet, when you are open to receive. Rest on love and move on with confidence to a much brighter future." ~ Regina Lopez
Final Note - don't pay attention to "Blogging Guru" BS you're gonna hear all year long that this or that is the new thing to jump on and retweet and "like" on facebook ::: "Blogging and blogs live on, long after (several yearsworth of) predictions they'd be replaced." ~ Yours Truly
Hopes for 2012
Let's hope this nutty trend of "infographics" drops dead in 2012!
