Skip the Apocalypse and Celebrate.

It’s the end of the world as we know it…” — R.E.M. 1987

And there have been other songs, movies, documentaries and books that tell stories about how the world will end. Have you ever pondered why our society seems to be fascinated (even obsessed) with the apocalypse? Maybe we subconsciously want an end to things — so we can start over with a clean slate.

What do you wish you could have done differently?

The last quarter of 2012 has been a game-changer. For everyone. The ground beneath us has shifted and continues to shift. Our world has been shaken to the core — economically, politically, environmentally, socially, emotionally. Where do you turn for something stable and familiar? And if you find it, is that just the calm before another storm?

The way I see it, we have two choices. Either we ride the wave, keep our fingers crossed and see where it takes us. Or we create a new game and sail it through the current. The message I got these past three months is that things will never be the same again.

The last chapter is coming to a close. Time to write a new story.

“It’s the end of the world as we know it. And I feel fine.”
