This next prediction of the apocalypse comes with a little more history behind it – the ancient Mayans supposedly ran out of calendar on December 21, 2012, so it is sometimes interpreted that the world will end on this date. Others will tell you it simply means a new beginning. Me? I believe every day can be a new beginning if you choose to make it so! You can also make that your
