Once I had finished a cup of coffee, I realized that my back yard had not been converted into a smoking hole in the ground, nor had my house been swallowed by an earthquake. The earth appeared to be, for the most part, still here. A brief check of the news and various social media sites confirmed what I had already suspected...the world did not end on December 21, 2012.
The news might not be so good for everyone, though. Over the past year, I had heard anecdotal reports that some people who believed that the Mayans accurately predicted that the end of the world on December 21, 2012 have maxed out credit cards and incurred large amount of debt under the belief that they would not have to repay. Essentially they were counting on cosmic happenstance to intervene as a sort of galactic loan forgiveness program.
Wishful thinking, perhaps.
Then again, the reason others are struggling with debt they cannot afford to pay may be a bit more grounded: the loss of a job, persistent unemployment, medical expenses, foreclosure, poor spending habits, etc. Whatever the case, Kelsey & Trask, P.C. stands ready to help.

We all might as well start off the 14th b’ak’tun with a fresh financial start.
