Pocket-Sized Dreams Expand

With 2010 coming to an end, I suppose 'contemplation' is an overused concept this time of the year.  So many questions rolling around the portion of the brain that thrives on existentialism


In an attempt to be more of a functioning 25 year-old and all around more successful, I have decided to indulge in my own sort of social experiment/conditioning.  Yes, this is probably just a fancy way of saying "I'm totally going to rock my New Year's resolutions this year"  [complete with pom poms]. Umm yea..


Publicly successful people often perpetuate the myth that anyone can accomplish their dreams if they try hard enough, I don't believe that.  Some things are just unrealistic [thus a myth].  No your child is not going to be the President of the United States [well, most likely not] no matter how many times he/she watches that one movie where the average Joe makes it to the White House, not everyone can function on 4 hours of sleep like Martha Stewart and Madonna even with mass quantities of Starbucks [even though it contains higher amounts of caffeine than other brands..and tastes yummy!], and some personalities are not meant to be in customer service..


Instead of spending the next week, 'contemplating' how this year was everything my little big heart could desire or dwelling over the inevitable shortfalls, it's time to come up with a plan of attack because after all as the wise Leonard Berstein [successful man] said "“To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.” [and since I happen to believe in sleeping at least 7 hours a night, the second seems apparent] 


The "plan" still needs some tweeking, so stay tuned - it's going to be epic.
