It has been reportedly said that the world is coming to an end this Friday, 21 December 2012. If that is really true, then it seems like we only have 2 days to live, or to be specific, 1 day, 11 hours and 14 minutes (as of now).
To be honest, I don’t know how the world is going to end. I don’t know because I haven’t been bothered to find out. As much as I have been hearing stories about the Mayan culture or solstice or whatever other EOTW lingo, I have never been interested enough to read up on them. Why? Because I simply don’t believe that the world is coming to an end.
Ostensible truth we have there. These news have not shot me with anxiety or fear. I still bother coming to work and sit my ass down, stare at this godknowshowmanyinch-screen and, freeze.
It’s a sad truth actually, not living my desired life. It’s not because the world is coming to an end that I feel a tinge of regret.
This surge of despondency comes from the fact that I am not, at all, living.
I had a choice, to walk away. To walk away and live the life I want, live the life that will set me free. But I didn’t. Instead, I chose to be desk-bound, rule-bound.
Why? Like many of you, I’m afraid. Afraid of what? Afraid to live.
Afraid to step out of my comfort zone to seek my desired life, afraid to go against all odds and be a rebel, afraid to go head on with my oh-so-grounded principles of reality.
I am a realist.
As much as I know how I am supposed to live my life, I’m not doing it. In fact, I’m doing the very opposite of it.
But one day, I will do whatever-the-fuck I want, and set myself free from these stupid realistic, principled anchors that are basically just pinning me to the river bed.
One day, after I get my frozen ass out of this icecube of nauseating tech-paralysing alcove.
You should too.
Ah, never should your reason to live be the ending of the world. Never.
When you do so, live. Not exist, or worst, survive – As many of us are doing right now, at this very moment.
Easier said than done? Of course.
One step at a time.
For those who really do believe the world is ending, you have 1 day, 10 hours and 13 minutes.
