Well, tomorrow is the end of the Mayan calendar. A 400 year cycle is over and a new one is about to begin. A new cycle, a new year, something that we are fortunate enough to experience in our lifetime.
So how about this? Instead of worrying about the world ending tomorrow, let’s make this a time of reflection, meditation and coming to terms with where we are in this life, how we got where we are, and where we want to go from here.
There are only 11 days left in 2012. Now is a good time to list out New Years resolutions. I personally prefer to call them New Years Commitments because then it sounds like a contract, a binding agreement. I don’t want to “promise” I will do this or that, I want to list out my goals and commit to seeing them through.
As for the new cycle or the turning of the Mayan calendar, let us start a new era, one of paying it forward. Start tomorrow, do something kind for someone you see during the day. Appreciate the people around you, pick up trash if you see it, open a door if needed, help if you can. If we all truly seek to be the change we want to see in the world, then the world will indeed change.
