A Good Year Or A Bad Year?

So, how has 2011 been for you so far? Good or bad? How do you expect it to continue?

Whatever it is, it's all in your head. There is no such thing as 2011 in the universe. The calendar is artificial, a creation of homo sapiens. 

Humans seem to have the genetic need to categorize and label everything, including time. Although humans have been around for hundreds of thousands of years, they have been known to measure time for only a few millennia, using calendars to structure their past and guide their behavior. Several different calendars of different ages are being used concurrently all over the world. 

Your expectation for success in life should not depend upon the earth's rotations around the sun, measured in a number of units of length incomprehensible to the human brain. 

Your success depends upon your decisions, especially when changes occur. You make choices every minute, each choice nudging you along the path of your destiny. Bad or good? Yes or no? Act or wait? Metaphorically speaking, you have the power to choose your response to a pothole impeding your path, whether you stop to analyze it, leap over it, step through it, walk around it, fill it, or ignore its existence. The calendar does not govern you.

So. 2011 is neither a good year nor a bad year. You are free to make your life what you want it to be.
