All the talk has been about the end of the world - the zombie apocalypse - the burning comets - and yet here we are, still. Another day has broken on the horizon and we are still here to see it. But I find myself wondering. What if it really had been the end of the world as we know it? What if a cataclysmic event tumbled our world into a completely unfamiliar state? How would you have responded? How would I have responded?
We take so much of our surroundings for granted. The beautiful sky - the strong and enduring evergreens - the people that live within our personal realms and we claim to love. I challenge everyone who reads this, be it today or next year, to look around you. What do you see? Who can you touch? Take it all in - cloak yourself in the beauty and love. And be grateful for what is in our world. You never know when it will be gone. Embrace it while you can.
