Attn: to be published immediately before the end of the world.
It is exactly 12:00pm EST here in New Hampshire right now. And you know what?
The Mayans were RIGHT! It must be the end of the world today. Not only have the now-extinct Mayan race predicted the end of the world to be today, and cleared right on outta here to prepare for the eventuality of doomsday (good thinking on their part, if you ask me), but nothing else will be published on PhysicalLiving.com after… today also. Hmm. Now, this could just be a coincidence, right? I think not! It’s highly doubtful anyways. But why didn’t I see this before? The connection is so obvious now. I mean, I can just FEEL the cosmic forces surging through my body!
All kidding aside, it’s been a wonderful year and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share some of the things that have helped me and my clients with you. And I’m especially grateful that you are here, and have been here, and that many of you have stuck with me through the thick of it. But all the gushing aside (hint: back to the real John Sifferman for a moment), if you really thought that today was the end of the world, then tomorrow might as well be because you’re about to get a rude awakening when you wake up tomorrow morning and you realize that the world isn’t over and you’ll have to get back to your life. I know. Terrible, isn’t it? You’ll get over it.
But I know you have a good head on your shoulders and probably don’t buy into all that nonsense. Which is why you know that tomorrow will just be another day, and before long we will begin another year. And it’ll be up to you and I to make it the best year we can. As always, I will be here to help in any way I can, which is why I want to give you a good headstart…
The Best of PhysicalLiving.com 2012
Now, since I’m going to be taking a little hiatus from the blog for the holidays, I wanted to post some good’uns to keep you occupied until I return after the New Year. So, here are some of the best posts to grace the archives of PhysicalLiving.com in 2012. Most of them are the reader’s choices, but some of them are just my personal favorites. Either way, you’ll have plenty to tide you over for the mean time. I’ve included some of the best how-to’s, definitive guides, Q+A’s, workouts, interviews, reviews, and other tips and strategies to help you get stronger and healthier, and ultimately, live a better, more fulfilling life.
So, without further adieu…
Another year come and gone like a flash. It’s impossible to do full justice to all that has happened on Physical Living in 2012 in one blogpost – even with a smorgasbord of links. Needless to say, it’s been a pretty wild ride with adventure lurking around every corner. But if there’s one thing that strikes me about this year, it’s how many messages I’ve received with a quick note of thanks that this simple work has somehow touched a life, and inspired or empowered someone to change in a positive way.
So, thank you – all of you – for tuning in and actually spending some of your precious time listening to my mindless wanderings. It feels good knowing that my insanity and character flaws are of use to you. I’ll keep bringing it, if you’ll keep reading it!
Regardless of what you believe and celebrate this time of year, make the most of it. Do the things that matter most. Live the next few days like they were some of your last. And from the whole Sifferman family, Merry Christmas and have a happy New Year!
