As we may already know, people are talking about the end of the world. Everyday I read tweets and updates about how we should live our life to the fullest and do what makes us happy before the 21st of December.
I decided to read a little more about this. Aren't you curious how this came about too? There have been a lot of saying and views about the end of the world, this date is regarded as the end of a long cycle in the Mayan calendar, some say the world will experience a new transition, "a positive and spiritual transformation" that the 21st of Dec will mark the beginning of a new era.
Just a while ago I read a friend's status update that I'd like to share.
There are three kinds of people who look at this date (21st of December) differently -
The first believe it is going to end on that day, so they live their lives enjoying as much as they can, spending time with their loved ones, spending all their money as it will be worthless after the world ends, and trying to get as much done on their To Do list, so they will not have any regrets.
The second kind doesn't believe it will come to pass - They live their lives as if they have many more years to live; making plans for next year and years ahead. These people think the first group of people are stupid.
The third does not care about the date, but these are the ones who are already ready for it to end at any time. They live their lives like the world is going to end soon, yet not neglecting their personal responsibilities. These people live life ceasing every opportunity life throws at them. They believe at life may end at any time, and they are ever ready for it.
Which one of these three are you?
I'd like to believe that I'm the third kind but truth is there are so many things I've yet to do, places I've yet to see, and I don't think I'll ever be ready. I'm sure many of us feel the same way.
But I hope whichever you are, you would live life to the fullest, do things that you will not regret so when you look back, you can smile and be grateful for being able to be there, to cherish the people you love, care for, friends who are there for you, and make sure nothing has been taken for granted.
This Christmas, tell your loved ones how much you love them, be home, and cherish them. December has always been my favourite time of the year, there's so much warmth and love to look forward to, I wish you all a happy week ahead :)
