The world will come to an end on 21-12-12.. That’s what the text message I received recently said..
Will it really?
There’s a host of websites dedicated to the topic, thankfully a lot of them contain sensible arguments which call it what it is…a hoax!
But what if it really is true, what if the word is really going to end that day, what If we really did have only a few days to live.. What would we do!
While an apocalypse may not be a reality that thankfully most of us may have to deal with, there are quite a few for whom an apocalypse has been predicted with certainty. Who live every day knowing for sure they are not going to live long, who know, whose loved ones know that they have very few months, or even just days to live!
The terminally ill live with that knowledge every day; their loved ones know for sure the end is near, how do they deal with it.
This reminds of me a beautiful bollywood classic – Anand (Which is the Hindi word for Happiness).
It is about a terminally ill person – Anand, who has been given just a few months to live, who has been told that he has form of cancer that has no cure and that the end Is very near..
Perfect recipe for an absolute tear jerker right? Well quite the opposite really..
Knowing that the end is near….Anand decides to live life to the fullest! He goes about spreading joy and happiness, reaching out to as many people as his short life would allow, touching their lives.
In loving his life he teaches several other people how to love their own, with what little color he has left he paints the lives of all those around with vibrant beautiful shades.
Like a beautiful flower that doesn’t really know or care if the end is near.. he steps out every day with his best suit and best smile…
He lives every day like its going to be his last. He lives his life like a kid whose been told the parks about to close and he better hurry up!.. That kid doesn’t waste time! That kid gives it all he has to make the most of the time he has left!
And really why cant we do all do that.. why not make the most of it while it lasts.
Live like the world is going to end .. not on 21-12-12, Live like its going to end tomorrow!..
Live like there’s absolutely no time left, you have to make the most of it.. Have all the fun while you can!
Go do that crazy thing you have been waiting to do all this while!
Go make that phone call you have been putting off!
Go give that hug!
Go down on your knee and just say it!
Go give that smile you know in your heart was needed!
Make that apology!
Go make your peace!
Live every day like it’s going to be your last!
Live like the world is going to end tomorrow!
Stop Worrying, Start Living!
Let 21-12-12 not be an end.. let it be a new beginning!
