It is your old friend Jack. I declared 2009 to be the worst year of my life and I still hold to it. The reasons why don’t matter, it is 2010 now and we are doing our best to look forward. You may remember that I declared 2010- The Year of Jack. I said it, I meant it and I will enforce it.
Unfortunately the message must have gotten garbled because little remnants of 2009 seem to be hanging around. They say don’t sweat the small stuff, but you a collection of little things can be a major pain-in-the-ass. You know, the whole death by a thousand paper cuts.
But 2010 is the year of Jack, so I know that the sun is going to shine again. Yesterday morning I replied to a tweet by Ralph Macchio, you know, the original Karate Kid. It is hard not like the movie. We always like to see the underdog win, even when they face an adversary who is willing to do anything to win.
2010 is the year I figure out how to exceed my limitations and push through the crap that has been holding me back. If we use “Karate Kid” rules it may not be “cool” to sweep the leg but there is nothing wrong with kicking someone in the mouth.
I wear a size 12 boot. Unless you like the taste of leather get out of the way. 2010 is the year of Jack.
