Since the new year has arrived and I’ve been trying to think of subject matter that might capture interest in an audience, I came across the following article and thought it might be interesting to share views relative to the predictions of the Mayan calendar.
Now that 2012 has arrived, did you ever stop to think of some of the things you would do different today on through 12.21.12 . . . theoretical doomsday? If you knew for a fact the world would be gone and it would all be over, would you change anything about your life? I find this to be a subject worth thought, since all of us, in fact, do face our own doomsday whether it be before or after 12.21.12. Most of us go through life pretending otherwise and live today as though they will indeed live to a ripe old age. Surely, planning for the future has an effect on what we do today. BUT, if you knew it would all be over in December, would you hug your kids more today? Would you give them more of your time? Would you take more joy in beautiful sunrises and sunsets? Would you listen to the sounds of nature and take more moments to simply enjoy life itself? I wonder these things as I watch other people chasing wealth to plan for their futures. I must admit, I am guilty of chasing that dollar too … money is a fact of life. Though I wonder where the balance of making a living and living falls? Remember the saying. Some people work to live and others live to work? Such fine lines we walk as we wander through life choosing our own paths. But what if it were to end on 12.21.12? What paths might we choose then?
If you care to share your thoughts, please feel free.
Happy New Year everyone. Let’s hope the Mayans are wrong. LOL
