Everywhere I turn I see people saying how awful 2011 was. I have to admit that it wasn't that for me at all. It was actually a pretty good year. I guess it's true how the old saying goes 'It's always about perspective'. I'm actually expecting 2012 to be better than this one was. Well, at least for me. I cannot stress enough the importance of thinking positively. I mean, I know I'm a freak and all, but, I try and not let petty subject matter bother me. I try and remain focused on what I want regardless if I get it or not. In that sense, if you never quit believing in yourself and where you want your life to be, even if it never happens, and you would be surprised at how many people never actually get where they want to be in life, you still have the honor of winning a moral victory. Hopefully, that's worth at least something.

In the last few years I have come a long way in regards to my writing. I have had three books published, a book trailer made courtesy of Bookcandy studios, several favorable reviews, an account on Amazon.com, 12 articles on Suite.101.com, and many other wonderful experiences. Now, as with then, I am looking to fully maximize my potential. But, I am actually unsure of which next step I am to take. Hopefully, it will present itself in the near future. Anyone who has ever achieved anything knows that the best never rest and time waits for no one!

Love. It's a delicate subject. For a freak, it's usually just a source of one thing. Pain. The truth is there is one inevitable fact of this life, that no matter how successful one becomes or what one accomplishes all are going to be alone someday. So when we as humans open ourselves up and share our genuine(if you have any)feelings with others, in truth all you are really doing is making yourself extremely vulnerable. I know many have their reasons for doing so, but the outcome is usually the same. Disappointment or despair. Imagine the feeling of meeting an actual soul mate(extremely rare in my opinion)and spending a lifetime of joy with them only to have them die miserably. Or, being with someone you think loves you only to find out when it's too late that nothing could be further from the truth. The feeling of loss that could come from any similar situation has driven many to madness, or worse, death. When I was younger I use to wonder how some people could be so cold in the ways of love. Now, I know only too well!
