It Shouldn’t Take the End of the World

The crazy theory of the world ending on December 21, 2012 was finally proven wrong. I’m not sure exactly how many people actually believed the end of the world was going to take place but for any of you who at least considered the possibility, think about what you spent your time doing during the final week leading up to that date. Were you living life how you want to live it?

The world isn’t going to end in our life time or even in the life time of our great, great, great grand children’s grand kids but our time here will eventually pass so at least from our perspective, it will end and it might come sooner than most of us were expecting. Grasp this reality and you’ll realize the time to be living life is NOW.

Far too many people delay doing things they’ve always wanted to do mainly because they keep thinking they can always do it later, when their life is less hectic and the time is better. Things will almost always comes up to cause the “right moment” not to be right. Life is too short to delay the things you really want to do. Whether you want to travel, take up a hobby, or tell the people you love how you feel about them, now is almost always the right time. Now, it may not be the best time, but it will be the right time. I say this because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.

If you knew you had 1 day left to live, would you hold out in hopes for a better time to do what you want to do? Of course not. Life can be unpredictable. You could live to be over 100 years old but just keep in mind that people die every day. Most of the people who will die tomorrow won’t know that tomorrow will be their “end of the world”.

The bottom line is to live life NOW. Laugh. Spend time with the people you love and care about. I’m not saying to be reckless and do something like quit your job and spend everything you have but at least do something each day or week or month that you wouldn’t normally do because you think there is plenty of time left to do it. That way, if your time here does unexpectedly end, you’ll have fewer regrets.
