Resolutions: Please resolve not to live your life passively and/or vicariously
All the energy that we expended trying to achieve those dreams seems wasted, as today our dreams seem no closer than they were a year or more ago.
To be sure, life is hard. There are no guarantees. And sometimes resigning ones self to “fate” seems the easiest and best option.
And so begins the habit of living ones life passively and/or vicariously.
Some of us Americans escape reality by playing games and measuring their self worth by how well they succeed in those games.
Some live vicariously through favorite TV Programs, Movies, Sports personalities, music videos and celebrities.

Sadly, none of these passive/vicarious activities do anything to improve our lives in the reality we actually live and exist in.
And this shift to passive/vicarious living happens almost unconsciously.
We become passive and/or begin living life vicariously as a coping strategy. The body has a pain avoidance reflex built into it, whether that pain is physical or emotional.
Further, Not trying to make the team, make the cheer leading squad, get good grades, trying to marry the homecoming queen or star high school sports star, attempting to graduate from college, asking for a raise and working toward a promotion or starting your own business is much less difficult and stressful than trying to achieve those things. If you don’t make the effort to achieve those goals, you don’t have to deal with the disappointment of what you perceive to be likely failure.

Next, it has came to this author's attention that many local papers will not run letters to the editor, Op Ed pieces and articles that do not conform to the perspective of the local "Powers that be". If you have a letter to the editor that relates to this article, feel free to post it as a comment, noting that the local news source refused to run it. As long as it conforms with general decorum and is plausible, very rarely will we refuse to publish it.

Send video/audio in common Internet formats or with Youtube.com links. Do not send video in Public Access TV and/or Cable formats. Our philosophy is that more open public dialogue is better than less public dialogue.
This article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine. I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense” http://amzn.to/kbRuar
