If the world did end, I would have no regrets

I don't usually post on Saturdays but that's because, well, no one else does and I'm all about jumping on bandwagons. Or not. But today is a special day. How? I don't want to explain it when Boobies, Babies and a Blog explains it so nicely.

To sum up, the world is/was supposed to end today. Jesus was supposed to come for us. Now I'm not religious at all but I do believe in God, but I really don't believe in this stuff. If the world's going to end, it's going to be because of some natural disaster or something. Not because of Jesus.

I hadn't even really heard of the world ending until recently. It must've been new news. I've heard all about it ending in 2012.

If the world really ended today I would be so mad that I went to work. What a waste of time. And that I went to bed last night. I would also die pretty unhappy never getting to meet my baby.

But when I really think about it, I wouldn't have any major regrets if I died today.

Maybe I haven't travelled anywhere exciting like the Bahamas or Paris or Disney World.
I haven't done anything risky like sky diving or bungee jumping or even scuba diving.
I haven't had a lot of money to be able to do a ton of fun things.
I haven't been married.
I haven't had any children.
I haven't learned how to cook a turkey dinner without help.
I don't have a ton of friends.
I spend my free days lazing around the house.

But I did get to travel on a plane once.
I've felt the excitement of a ferris wheel.
I spent my money on things I love.
I've fallen in love.
I've felt a baby kicking in my stomach.
I swam in the ocean and made forts in the woods.
I have a couple of the most supportive, amazing friends anyone could ask for.
I've had many nights where I laughed until I cried.
I've seen an old man's face light up when I walked into the room.
I do what I love with my time, not what I feel like I should do.

And I am more than happy with all of that.

I am not afraid of dying, I know we will all die one day or another. But I am afraid of pain and suffering. Does it say anywhere that if the world does end if we will suffer?

And yeah, I completely agree with you, I think that whole rapture stuff was a bunch of hooey!

That guy was crazy. But I'm glad you wouldn't have any regrets. That's important.
