Media outlets and people all around are making a big deal out of today. It's December 12, 2012 -- 12/12/12. 

Last night just before bed I felt a bit weird that I wasn't jumping on the bandwagon. I'm always looking for an excuse to celebrate. And 12/12/12 is a date that will never again occur in our lifetimes.  

Then this morning I logged onto Facebook and saw a very poignant status update from the online magazine The Indie Chicks:
Up and at 'em power babes! So many people are emphasizing how 12/12/12 will never again happen in our lifetime! 
Newsflash: Each day we live will never again happen in our lifetime. Live it up, work it hard. Make those dreams come true!

How silly that we put such an emphasis on this day just because the date looks cool. We need to live every day with both an attitude of celebration and a sense of urgency. Each day is a gift, but one we will never see again; and we don't know how many more of these gifts we have left to receive. So, as cliche as it might sound, live each day to the fullest, doing all you can to realize your dreams, and doing all you can to let the ones you love know how much you care.

After all, you never know when the zombie apocalypse is going to strike. 


  1. This was my exact thought which is probably why I didn't make a big deal out of it.. along with other reasons. I try my best to make the best of every day, even if I decide to stay in bed all day just to get some rest.

    1. Yes, getting rest is definitely worthwhile and something I don't do enough of!
