To be perfectly honest, I know absolutely nothing at all about this ‘end of the world’ concept, nor do I wish to know anything about it. I don’t understand the theory behind a zombie apocalypse, I don’t know what time the world is apparently going to end and I don’t know how or why this is all suppose to happen, but there are a few things that I do know.

1. Life is short, regardless of possible zombie attacks.

2. I have lived twenty-one years of a life more amazing than I ever could have dreamed.

3. Despite being afraid, I have loved with my whole entire heart.

4. A family truly is a love beyond words.

5. Soulmates aren’t just for fairytales.

6. Superheroes really do exist, I happen to have one as my big brother.

7. Happiness is a choice; it’s a state of mind.

8. True friends don’t need to speak daily, true friends can go months without speaking and yet still pick up right where it was that they left off.

9. Just one single hug can make anything and everything better, especially when it comes from your Dadda.

10. Laughter really is the best medicine.

11. Life is beautiful.

12. Christmas will always be a time of magic, regardess of how ‘grown up’ you may consider yourself to be.

13. Despite what society leads us to believe, a Mumma and her Daughter can in fact be the very vest of friends.

14. We all make mistakes, it’s a natural part of life. The hard part is learning how to forgive ourselves.

15. If in doubt, follow your instincts.

16. Change is inevitable, embrace it.

17. Bad things happen to good people and there is not a single thing that we can do about it.

18. Making other people happy is actually far less important than making ourselves happy.

19. Nothing is ever as bad as it first seems.

20. Everything happens for a reason, even if we may not know what that reason is just yet.

So really, if the world truly is going to end tonight, then let’s face it; at the end of the day, there really is nothing at all we can do to change it. At one stage or another, each of our worlds are going to end. It may not be at the very same time and it may not be caused by a zombie apocalypse, but eventually, life as we know it is going to come to an end. What we choose to do between now and then though, is completely up to us.

Personally, given that my lovely big brother has already informed me that I will be a first waver, whatever that means, I’m chooing to enjoy it while it lasts; however long that may be.

I’m choosing to continue to love, with my whole entire heart. To smile until my cheeks are sore and my heart is happy. To laugh uncontrollably, at anything and everything and to live as though every single day counts, because regardless of whether we have one day, one hundred days or one hundred years, each of those days is just as important as the next. Each of those days has the potential to be great, to be wonderful, to be momentous. Each of those days has the potential to spark a moment that changes our lives, we just have to be courageous enough to light that spark.
