Suppose The Mayans Got It Right

     Let's imagine for a minute that scientists discovered that the Mayans got it right – the world is going to end on December 21, 2012. How would you want to spend your time until that day? The answers would probably run the gamut from “party unceasingly” to “pray unceasingly.”
     As for me, I would probably come down somewhere in the middle. I am pretty happy with the way things are now, and I would want to continue as is with one addition: my immediate family is spread across the country, and I would like to get them all together for a visit – kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. If I have wronged anyone over the years, I would ask for their forgiveness, and anyone who has done me dirty, I would forgive you. There is a saying, “The best revenge is to live well.” I've done that.
     Come to think about it these are good ideas, at least for me, even if the Mayans are wrong.
     I think it would be a good exercise to ask yourself what you would do. Then perhaps you should do it.
