Today’s exercise is encouragement.  There is much uncertainty going around, the hectic holiday schedule, the upcoming new year and the rumor that today is the last day of our existence.  Tweet a positive quote, make an upbeat Facebook status, blog something cheerful and encouraging.

One year ago today, we visited the Mayan Ruins in the Yucatan Peninsula and were educated on “THE” calendar, where all the Mayans went and why all these pyramids were abandoned.  The calendar goes in cycles, and today simply means the end of a 5,125 year-long cycle and tomorrow is the start of another cycle.  The Mayans were not taken by Martians, they simply migrated to other areas because their natural resources ran out, thus the abandoned pyramids.  So basically, they ran out of water, fertile soil, animals and harvest so they all went in different directions.  By the time they went to other cities, towns and areas, they adapted to the way of living in their new environment and were mostly ruled by the Spaniards – who had their own King and Queen to serve and would not hear of sacrificing the captain of the football team from a 4 foot 11 inch tall man!

Lots of interesting facts learned that week but in a nut shell… everything’s gonna be okay.  Have a great weekend everyone!
