The Mayans said the world was going to end in 2012. What did they know? I don’t know and I really don’t care. Call me the Ebenezer Scrooge of the New Year. Except instead of “Bah-humbug!” I say, “Meh”.  As in, who knows if that ancient civilization was right? Who knows if it will happen at all? What can we do about it?

I have an answer for that: Absolutely nothing.

There isn’t a thing we can do if the world is going to stop for humanity. If a dinosaur killing meteorite comes plummeting to our planet or if Aliens decide to go postal on us or if Mother Nature decides it has had enough and we suffer through another dark age. The fact is there just isn’t a thing we can do about it. So why worry?

Go about your business. Pursue the work that makes your heart sing. Let the people you care about know it.  Take the time to look up and see the beauty around you. Appreciate the wonder that is life. Smell those roses and all that jazz. In other words, live your life like you do every year but maybe with a little more kindness.

    There’s only one problem with this… The Mayans never said the world was going to end in 2012.

      They may not have said it word for word, but by ending the calendar in 2012 they most certainly implied it. So the question is, are you of the mind that this is the last year for mankind or did the Mayans just run out of room?

    I don’t even think the Mayans implied it. With that said, I could never take something like this seriously. Obviously someone made this whole thing up.

      Someone who wants to sell “end of world” stuff? I think it will be interesting to see how society reacts as the count down to December 21, 2012 ticks down. Should make for some interesting news.

    Good way to make money, especially the companies that are making money off people prepping already with storing food, firearms, solar panels, water pumps, etc, etc. But, I think it started as a joke, or, by some conspiracy theorist.
