The first thing that caught my eye this morning on my way to work was this newly mounted billboard talking about how the world is ending on 21st May 2011 by some Christian Radio.
I had already seen this billboard last year near Globe Cinema Roundabout and I rubbished it.
Is this organisation trying to get people to log onto their site by creating mass hysteria? Does it mean if we log in, the world will not end?? I really do not understand what they are trying to achieve with this billboard.
I believe it is a load of crap, but they still managed to freak me out so early on a Monday morning. Judgement day is nothing to joke about or something to try and profit from. The whole concept of the world ending has always been a scary subject for me. I have never even read the book of Revelation in the bible, and I doubt I ever will. I do not remember how I felt about the world ending at the onset of the new millennium, I think I was too preoccupied with K.C.P.E and the awesome New Year celebrations.
I have always wondered what kind of person I will be the day the Lord returns. Will I have lived the life Christ had wanted me to live? We are all sinners one way or another so I am sure I am not the only one with doubts as to whether the bouncers at the golden gates will let us in or freeze us.
If the world really is ending on May 21st 2011, then time is running out and there are still so many things that I have not yet done. Maybe this is the perfect excuse to come up with a bucket list.
Have you watched the movie Yes Man starring Jim Carrey? I always get encouraged every time I watch that movie, I have seen it like almost five times now and each time I vow to become a Yes Woman, to say yes to every opportunity that is thrown my way within a heartbeat.
The problem with me is that I over-think and really analyse everything. I look at a situation, consider all the factors involved and how they would be affected, and basically consider their reactions more seriously than my own.
If the world is ending in the next 2 months, then screw over thinking and other people’s opinions, time to look out for number one and use that energy to seek every opportunity that comes my way. That billboard will become a daily reminder to live my life to the fullest, regardless of whether the world will end or not.
I will write a post on my bucket list once I am done constructing it, feel free to share yours if you have one.
