2012: Let The Craziness Begin...
January 03, 2012
January 1st is traditionally a time for reflection on the past year and all of the ups and downs and goods and bads that came with it. Well, I don't want to reflect on the past year, dammit. I actually refuse to do any reflection right now. Maybe in February I'll have my own private “New Year's” of reflection but for now, I have too much happening in the future to look at the past. It's only the 3rd day of the year but I have so much I'm banking on in 2012 that I have declared this “My Year” (according to me that is... obviously for you all it should be “Your Year”).
Wondering what all these exhilarating happenings are for 2012? Well I'm honored that you're interested in my going-ons but I just can't divulge those secrets yet! Cruel I know, and my sincerest apologies. However, if all plays out as it should (which it never does) things are going to get crazy in the cupcake-o-sphere for Heather Cupcakes.
Have you ever dreamt of doing something since you were a kid yet it seemed so outside the realm of possibilities that you chalked it up to a “pipe dream”? One of those really far-out once in a lifetime things that you daydream about and itch for the opportunity to latch onto? Well, what would you do if one day that dream came to fruition? Yeah, I don't know what I'd do either since it hasn't happened yet. However, things have happened recently that have brought me nearer to that dream. The scary part is knowing that this year will most likely bring me closer to that dream than I ever will be again. Yes, I don't know what the future will bring and yes, I am on the underside of old but I'm a realist and I recognize that once in a lifetime opportunities are just that – once in a lifetime.
Essentially what I'm trying to say is I'm frightened to near death about this coming year. It has potential of being the best year of my life thus far or possibly one of the most disappointing if I succeed in effing it up. If you've ever been faced with this type of potential positivity after such hardship and rotten times you'll understand the amount of pressure I feel weighing on me right now.
How do I capitalize on the upcoming fortune stemming from the ass kicking hard work I've accomplished? How do I avoid paralyzation and not let the ship of dreams sail by me while I wave from the dock? I don't know the answers to these questions but I damn well better figure them out soon or... well, or nothing since I'm not a backup plan type of gal.
Since the reasoning behind starting this blog was in anticipation of the craziness to come I really hope you'll join me as I document my journey through 2012. And hey, perhaps by the end of it all you'll hear me proclaiming that old cliché of “dreams really can come true”.
Cupcakes = Life
