Hey, look at that: the world didn’t end. Not exactly a huge surprise, is it?
But, if you were hoping you wouldn’t have to pay off those Christmas bills and for a fiery apocalypse, would it make you feel better if you considered that perhaps an apocalypse occurred anyway? Or that it could?
The end of the Mayan calendar was the end of an age, not the end of time. Which means we’ve entered a new age, a new opportunity, a new world, leaving the old behind us. It’s how we often like to think of the New Year anyway, isn’t it? All those bad habits, broken promises, and crushed dreams left behind in the past because THIS will be our year, THIS will be when things finally turn our way.
And why shouldn’t they?
As you embark on a new year, perhaps you should be considering the apocalypse – your own apocalypse, and how you want to approach 2013. Because guess what: there will be people who will predict the annihilation of the world as we know it. Horrible things will happen. But wonderful things can and will happen, too. So how to you want to enter a new year and a new age? Fearing the potential of apocalypse, danger and the return of old pain? Or, looking forward to a bright future, full of possibility, promise, and everything you’ve waited for?
It’s a new year. It’s your choice. Come on. Go out and grab it. And all the best to you and yours in 2013.
Thanks for reading, and see you in the new year! 🙂
