10 Random Reasons 2012 Is YOUR Year!

The Mayans might have predicted that 2012 will be the end of our time on Earth (and actually they didn’t – they expect the Mayan god of creation and war to reappear, not Earth’s destruction), but for the rest of us, we’re expecting 2012 to be a great year for women everywhere! And why is this year going to be good? Why not?

Fresh Start
Every year is an opportunity for a fresh start, and 2012 will be no different. If nothing else, everything will feel new in 2012 – and that alone is worthy of praise?

Your Job Outlook Will Improve

With the economy slowly building to a recovery, it’s likely that the work situation for many women will improve as well. If you’ve been stuck in a job because you’re afraid to leave it, the workload might start to ease up or you might be able to start looking around for something new. The good news here is that if you have a job, it’s easier to get a new one. If you don’t have a job, the spots opening up slowly in 2012 might be just what you’re looking for.

Boots Are Sticking Around

Boots are sexy things, and we love anything that lasts for more than one season. Boots have been around for at least two years so far and there’s no sign that they are going anywhere. So while everything is on sale for the holiday season, snag yourself a couple of pairs you can enjoy throughout the year.

Fashion Is Even More Affordable

If you like luxurious fabrics and fine cuts, this is your year. The fashion market is still luring in customers and trying to make sales, and this is your big gain. You can expect to get a great discount on just about anything you buy online – especially if you take advantage of the many online sales.

Mini iPads Will (Might) Be Released

Okay, so we’re not actually sure yet, but the must-have gadgets that Apple continues to release are coming faster in 2012. Already buzzed about for the new year are a mini-iPad as well as the iPhone 5. And that’s not even mentioning the Apple HDTV that will combine internet, iTunes and plenty of other digital awesomeness.

The Olympics Are Coming

If you need a reason to get inspired to exercise and get in shape, look no farther than London. We’ve seen a couple years of gloom and doom, and 2012 is going to be fun with the Olympic festivities to look forward to. Of course, we’ll have to wait a bit for the games to start since they don’t go live until the summer months, but with the presidential election coming, there’s plenty to keep us occupied in the meantime.

Political Changes Are Coming

It’s hard to say what changes are coming, but there is definitely a feeling of change in the air in Washington. It may be a new President, it may be new congress members, or it may just be a slew of hopeful laws. But whatever it is, the feeling of change is definitely in the air – and with change comes hope.

It’s a Good Year for Movies

So you’ve read the books and seen the first flicks, but just how many awesome movies are being released in 2012? Let us count the ways: Hunger Games on March 23, The Avengers on May 4, The Hobbit on December 14), The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, The Great Gatsby on December 25th, Snow White and the Huntsman on October 1, Titanic in 3D on April 6, Prometheus (A suspected prequel to Aliens) on June 8th and the final installment of Breaking Dawn on November 16. Get your popcorn ready!

Internet Gambling May Be On the Way In

Sure, everyone loves a little trip to the casinos, but if some of the latest laws pass in Congress or in individual states, you won’t have to take a trip to enjoy making a few bucks online. It’s looking increasingly likely that the US will allow online poker or gambling and that will certainly make work a bit easier to bear!

The World Isn’t Going to End

Unlike all of the mumbo jumbo online, there doesn’t seem to be any substantial evidence that the world is going to end in 2012. The Mayan Calendar wasn’t counting down to the end of time and there isn’t a planet that’s about to hit us. It’s just going to be another (good) year for women everywhere!
