As we all know this will be the last year of our planet as we know it according to the Mayan Calendar. I saw a cartoon of two Mayan’s looking at a calendar and one said “Why does it only go to 2012?”, to which the second character replied “I didn’t have enough room for 2013.” Made me laugh.
Hear’s the deal really… you don’t know what you don’t know. My brother and I had two childhood friends. We would bike 10 km or so to their farm house and play all day and bike home… their names were Matt and Mark. Matt grew up, got married, has two kids now I believe, and Mark was driving to work one day, hit a patch of wet leaves. His car spun out of control and we had to burry him. I’m not sure, I think he was about 21 or so… I cried at that funeral, and I’m not much of a crier. It’s not that I don’t like crying, it’s just that I don’t do it often. Mark didn’t see it coming, I didn’t see it coming, no one did. You don’t know what tomorrow has in store for you. No one ever PLANS for this kind of stuff… I mean, you never PLAN on getting cancer, or losing a limb at work or hitting a patch of leave on your way to work. You can never plan on getting hit by a car while you cross the street…
Stop worrying about the future. Eventually it will come. As bad as things can get they can also get better. Every day I have to tell myself that I’m blessed to have another one. I know that I know that I know, that I don’t know what I don’t know. And that means you can’t worry about it.
Maybe the world will end this year. I doubt it. Maybe I won’t be here next week to blog about music. In the end I guess it comes down to this… What am I doing NOW to love unconditionally and support all the humans around me? How can I help a bit more. Does it matter if I have a new car and a bigger house? What is really important right now?
I mean really. Yesterday is history and tomorrow never comes.
