If the world was going to end this year, you would think it would’ve been on 12-12-12. But according to the Mayan calendar, the world is supposed to end today. Why? Because this is the last recorded date on the Mayan calendar. But there could be hundreds of explanation for that, starting with the fact that the person who was responsible for creating the calendar got fed up and was like forget this ish, I’m done. Who knows? But thankfully many of us didn’t buy into the hype. And for those of you who did, I hope you kept your receipt for the all the crazy ish you bought in an attempt to survive the “end of the world”. Why do people think they can survive the end of the world? I don’t know. But moving on…Since the world still turns, we still have the opportunity to accomplish everything on our to-do list.
As of recent, I’ve found myself obsessing over everything that I thought that I would’ve accomplished already, but haven’t. I’ve looked at pictures of myself in my youth, and questioned whether I did right by that girl. I think about whether I had a serendipity moment, and if so, did I make the right decision. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m happy. I have two beautiful children, a man who loves me better than any other, wonderful friends and family, and a great job. But I haven’t scratched the surface of what I had planned for my life. Now with 2013 quickly approaching, I began to question whether any of it will come to pass. The thought of it not, made me feel like I’ve failed myself. But in this very moment, I’m reminded that the Lord says that He has a plan for me, a plan to prosper me, and to give me a hope and a future. He also said that His ways are greater than my ways, His thoughts are greater than my thoughts, and that He can do immeasurably more than I can ask or imagine. So why am I tripping?
Often times, things come full circle anyway. So though it may not happen in our timing, it will happen in its perfect timing. And if not at all, there’s something bigger and better that awaits. So as 2012 comes to a close next week, don’t be like me and beat yourself up over the things that you didn’t do, or even the things that you regretfully did. Just know that EVERY new day, draws you closer to the person you were destined to become. So continue to live life in the moment with an expectation that greatness awaits you.
My son was born prematurely and he was in the hospital for 3 months. I would look at his tiny body and proclaim, Though your beginnings were small, your latter end will greatly increase!
And to you, I say the same.
