In Case the World Ends in 2012

Posted by on Jan 1, 2012 in Thoughts from the Nest | 2 comments

2012 is going to be the best year of my life so far.

The Mayan calendar says the world ends in December 21, 2012, as do many other cultures. I’ll be honest, the rational side of me thinks there’s no way — it’s sort of like Y2K all over again where all the hype happened for no apparent reason. But there’s that little superstitious part of me that kinda freaks out about it. Once I let myself watch a whole documentary about the whole thing. That was a bad idea.

As I’ve mentioned before, I have this weird thing with numbers. Not entirely sure how it started, but I’ve done this thing since I was a kid where certain numbers were “good numbers” and I’d add numbers together to determine if dates and such were acceptable. I could go on and on about the whole thing (as my friends could tell you), but I’ll spare you (for today). Anyway, my two favorite numbers are 21 and 12, so the predicted apocalypse on 12-21-12 doesn’t help with the irrational nerves over it.

That’s why I’ve decided 2012 is going to be the best year of my life. Like the idea behind “The Secret,” I think you can will things to be what you’re looking for by your attitude towards them. It’s all a matter of hard work and positive thinking. I read this article the other day about common life regrets and how happiness is a choice. So why not live 2012 like it’s our last year?  I really don’t fancy the world ending when I haven’t even hit 30, but will it really hurt to make as many of my dreams a reality as possible?

No, I’m not going to blow all my money or do anything too crazy. Just going to spend my time wisely — soak up every moment of beauty, visit with loved ones, work hard and play hard. Do I really think the world will end? I really hope not. But just in case, let’s make 2012 the best year ever.

Here’s to a happy new year and many great things to look back on in 2013.

    Apparently the grammar nerd tendencies did not come from her mother’s side. She doesn’t even realize that sentences should not start with conjunctions (i.e. “and”). Plus, it should have been “whence”, not “where”, but most people would have just formulated the question differently: “How did you come to be such a grammar nerd?”
