Lessons from a Recovering Doormat


Will the World End Tomorrow?

I’ve lived through several warnings about the world ending and heard stories of people selling their homes, spending their money and then being in bad shape when life went on. It seems people need an excuse to enjoy their lives. I personally don’t believe it will happen tomorrow but do know it is in God’s hands and that means I’m fine. My faith keeps me from worrying.

What we can learn from this is the importance of living every day fully, with lots of joy!

There are different interpretations of your world ending. Mine ended when I left DoorMatville, which began a new world of taking care of me. As I became empowered, I entered a world of happiness and getting my needs met. Now I’m conscious about how happy I make myself each day. People seem to be using the belief that the world is ending to give themselves permission to put all their efforts into enjoying life for a few days. I feel sorry for the ones who’ve spent everything and will be low on resources on Sunday.

There is a middle ground—live every day with an intention of being happy in moderation.

Moderation means not getting carried away like the people who think they must fit all of their pleasure into a few days before the end. Find one loving thing to do for yourself that makes you feel good—every day. It doesn’t have to cost money. Taking a break can give you pleasure. Calling a friend can leave you feeling good. While living like the world is coming to an end can take spending, partying, and doing what you please to an extreme, it can ruin your life when you run out of money and burn out.

Living like every day is your best can keep happiness as a constant in your life.

Figure out something you’d like to do each day and write it down on a big post-it or a paper that ou put on your fridge or a mirror as a reminder to do something nice for you. Writing something down each day keeps you conscious of making yourself happy. Also think about things you’d want to clear up if the world really was ending. Is there someone you want to resolve an issue with? Or make it clear you love them? Or a change you want to make in your living space? Or anything you’ve put off for ages but know you must do. Write them down and take steps to doing them, one at a time.

If the world ended tomorrow, what regrets would you have? Why wait for the world to end to fix them??!

You can make changes in your life every day that make life better, no matter how much time you have left! Become aware of what you’ve been putting off or situations you want to resolve. Then when life goes on, it will be a better one! Live each day as your best and enjoy the results!

    If you believe this poppycock I’m laughing at you. You people are so ignorant to believe this nonsense. If you TRULLY believe this and when we’re alive tomorrow, you should end your life so none of us think less of you. If you’re that much of a sheep, then you’re no good to humanity.

    Those of you that believed in Y2K…what do you have to say for yourselves? This isn’t any different, just another arbitrary date for religious zealots to get hyped over. I suppose when we don’t die tomorrow you’ll freak out about the Mayan Calendar as well, right? Or maybe you’ll have another silly mathematician rack up some numbers in bible to come up another day that this will happen.

    You all need to get a life or lose it if you believe in this nonsese.

    You do not have to be a person of faith. To understand the planet is a living thing. You do realize the world has had a birth date? Right? So anyone with common sense can distinguish the fact that the planet will also have a death date. Even our sun will burn itself out. No one. Not even science can stop nature from it’s natural course. As planets before us have died. The cycle of life applies to space, as does on Earth. Though our solar system may die. Another out there, perhaps containing life. Will go through an era of evolution. As we once have. Either way. A religious practice of ‘the world ending’ isn’t far off from actual events. :]

    Sean,although i agree with you in some far off sense,i feel just as sorry for you as i do everyone else who believes that the end of the world will be tomorrow. just by reading what you wrote tells me how sick and unhappy you really are with yourself. For you to tell someone to end their own lives because of being weak and mislead shows that you want to do just that and i say save everyone else your embarrassment and off yourself quietly. oh and i’ll pray for your soul.

    As a pagan, I have to laugh at the whole thing. Will the world end tomorrow? Yes. It does every day (and every conceivable subdivision of that day). The cool thing is that it’s also reborn every day.

    Daylle..you would think after all the “rapture” moments, it would wake people up to “start today as if it were the first day of my life”a new leash, change habits, become a better person, do something to make a difference !!!It has been said before that “life will change as we know it”. It’s been changing for as long as I have lived..today is not like 30 years ago, tomorrow will be different than yesterday..so what’s the point? The Bible states, only G-d will know when it ends..man will not..there will be survivors, but their world will depend on their strengths, beliefs and wants to survive.
    ..I live for today as that is the one I have control of….Just my thoughts..weedbychoice..kjforce

    I do leave it in God’s hands.

    Apparently some people still need to go back and the Bible to understand that no man will know when the last day will be. God did it that way on purpose to help us live as He wrote to us in the Bible. Too many of us would try to ‘cheat’ God by starting to live as He says on the day before when the idea is to do so throughout one’s lifetime. It certainly makes things better for you (and me) when you done in the prescrbed way.

Ditch the Victim Mentality
A common thread among clients who come to me for self-empowerment counseling is “Why do people use me?” And they groan, “Why me?” And they whine, “I’ll never get what I want because of _____.”  I tell them to fill in that blank with, “because I allow myself to be a victim.” People
