At the end of the year, the man and his wife were both still there — living and breathing. And they were both profoundly grateful for it. But they were even more grateful for the lessons they had learned through a year of constant priority assessment and adjustment.

Now, I'm not saying we should all approach 2012 like it's going to be a year of doom and gloom. Probably those naysayers are right: Nibiru is going to stay right where it is — wherever it is — and we can all look forward to the wondrous possibilities of 2013.
