It’s The End of The World As We Know It


Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’re likely very aware of what today is: December 21st, 2012. It’s the day that 2012 believers and survivalists will be disappointed in because the world will keep turning and life will continue tomorrow (and even if it doesn’t they won’t know I wrote this because we won’t be- win for me, right?!).

There have been Blockbuster hits, books, movies, websites, and groups all dedicated to this day because so very many people believed (or mocked the belief of) that something significant would happen. And even though nothing did (or likely will) there is a valuable lesson to be learned here: never take life for granted. Never wait until tomorrow to do or say what could be done or said today. These tragic events lately that we’ve seen, heard about, or read about all teach us the value of our life here on Earth. Our vulnerability teaches us the fragile nature of human existence.

What would you have done differently this morning if you knew the predictions were right? What would you have said? Would you be more patient with your children? Would you tell someone you’re sorry? Would you say “I love you”? Give a tighter, longer hug? We can’t predict the future and not one of us knows, with 100% certainty, what’s ahead, so take a little time today to show someone you care, to really enjoy the moment, and to really breathe. You might even find that your day is a little more enjoyable if you do.

  1. That’s great, it starts with an earthquake, birds, snakes, an aeroplane… Lenny Bruce is NOT AFRAID!!!
    It’s all over anyway, the predicted time of the ‘end of the world’ was at 11:11 UTC, which happened at about 5am this morning where I am. I woke up this morning and everything seems normal to me… unless we’re the only ones left…. nope, I’ve spoken to at least 3 different people on the phone today 🙂
