12-21-12 and the End of…

Yep. So here we are – as in its December 21, 2012, AND WE ARE STILL HERE.

This is my surprised face.

It is amazing to me what we, as a society, insist on hearing…that the end of a cycle or calendar must of course clearly indicate that the world is coming to an end and we were all doomed. No folks, we are just coming to the end of one phase, if you believe the Mayans, and beginning another.

People don’t freak out when they realize the annual calendar they have hanging on the wall doesn’t have any more pages after they get to December…they just go to the store and get the next year’s calendar when it is available….why is this not the same?

What does it say about our society when every ten years or so we seem to grasp onto something that would essentially give us a mulligan…or a clean slate of some sort….how about we take responsibility for the world we live in instead of hoping for convenient global catastrophe that would mean we don’t have to find a way to clean up our mess?

I mean, is it just me? Perhaps it is, but it does seem that this avid interest in the potential for the end of the world is also a bit about hoping for the easy way out. Step up, folks, be happy you are still here, and take responsibility for every footstep you make today and all the tomorrows that follow.

  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers? I’d
    definitely appreciate it.

    • Hey there – I’m pretty new to this as well, but what I would suggest is to remember that your blog title really has a lot to do with how much it might come up in relevant searches. If you’re doing a topic specific blog, than the same applies there. As you can see from mine, it’s a random blog, so the title is more related to the content on a general level.

      Other than that, sorry if I lost your first comment, as I mentioned – I’m new to this as well and probably just did something wrong 🙂

      Good luck with your blogging!
