I woke up — and I haven’t even gone out of bed yet — feeling that I have to write my own personalized wish for everyone this 2012. It might be a bit more exhaustive than initially planned, but here it goes:
This year, I hope that, for once or twice or seven times seven times seven times, you be wrong. Take a risk — jump off a cliff, get your feet dirty, get your hands dirty, learn to cartwheel, fall and laugh at yourself, visit a strange place, go home with scratches and bruises, become friends with someone nobody else knows, find a new love, do something impossible. Be crazily passionate. Deep within you is a fire; let it burn. Deep within you is a wild child; unleash it. There are things that you’ve been wanting to do for years now but never do for fear of being wrong. Do it. Be wrong. You can never create something beautiful without making mistakes. Go ahead. Be wrong now. The time will never be just right.
