Everyone would be overjoyed just to be alive. The holiday wouldn’t be about commercialism, presents or how many gifts we gave or received it would be a holiday that would once again be celebrated for its original meaning, which was the gift of life.
We’d all see each other differently as the Xmas spirit would take on true meaning. Rich and poor, young and old, black and white, even Democrat and Republican would be in the same boat, happy to be alive. (okay, maybe the Republicans would need a yacht but you get the point!
So just in case there’s a chance the world is going to end on the 21st, here’s what I’m going to recommend. Prioritize what and who makes you happy and enjoy it, and them, for your remaining two weeks.
And then, when you wake up on December 22, 2012, start all over and do it again.
I’ll end with this, I’ll give to you the same timely quote from Mark Twain that I used back in 2009, It goes like this:
“Dance like nobody’s watching; Love like you’ve never been hurt; Sing like nobody’s listening; and Live like it’s heaven on earth.”
