The excitement and the spirit of giving comes and go at the end of every year. People return back to their daily lives; going to work, earning money and spending days with the same people they always knew, having no change except from an upcoming birthday preparation or a dress trend. Telling us that life goes on no matter what.
But if for a second one thinks, can one think on this? What would one want now, that one didn’t get last year? What does one need to do so nations will hear our name?Someone was sleeping out in the cold while you had a warm bed, someone was taking their last breathe while you were drinking hot chocolate, some were even wondering what festive seasons such as Christmas with one more person would have been and for some it was why did he/she die?
The story of our lives is not some biography, where we tell tales as though everyone should have an ear for us. Many citizens in their countries have experienced issues that make them resent their birth countries. Some countries have experienced famine and war between citizens and nations around the world and nothing seems to get better anymore.
Life as we know it has created a large gap between the rich and the poor and a close gap between life and death; people have lost hope in their government, many are out of jobs, mums are loosing teenagers to prostitution and gang fights, everyone now blames someone. The rich is getting richer and the poor poorer and everyone wants to be a boss (wonder who wants to work for who?)
We should be glad when we come into a new year, despite the things done in our environment. We should always sympathize with the families of those who lose their dear ones (Death be not proud). Mothers who lost children, wives who lost husbands and people who lose friends.
In any new year, we can accept new beginnings; do not feel sad and sorry when you hear bad news anymore. Have some respect for humanity, yourself and your loved ones, even for someone who you do not know. Giving and loving isn’t just for special occasions; live in that feeling every single day.
Live like you are dying. Stay alive
