One, two, three into the four… Mic Check
People used to gather celebrate. In the near future people will still gather. But what about now?
Celebrate because you lived another day. Celebrate because tomorrow you have the chance to start all over again. Celebrate because you can read this from a screen (that 25 years ago was available only to a few). Celebrate because you’ve just taken another breath. Don’t hesitate to celebrate if you hear the silence. Celebrate the colours around you. Celebrate the light and the music. Celebrate for every vibration that you feel. Close your eyes, picture yourself on a beach… Celebrate some more.
Invent a festival. Give it a name. Set a day in the calendar. Imagine how would it feel. Even though it’s not due, celebrate it right now. Celebrate the days. Sum up all the numbers that compose your birthday and celebrate.
What’s on the other side? A lot of the people live their lives as there’s no tomorrow; simply put, every thing is bad and the Apocalypse is near. They felt the same last year and the year before. Now they feel better than ever in their misery just because right now their prophecy has been fulfilled. They might be right, but what do they get from this? They feel good for a moment and they get back to how they felt before, waiting for the next catastrophe.
Feeling good or bad, you burn the same amount of calories (even more when you are stressed). Why don’t you take a break and conserve all this waisted energy? Do something crazy right now! Celebrate!
When was the last time you did something for the first time? In the middle of a crisis, you are happy. Celebrate because you’re not on the side; the middle is something after all (in order to get here, you took some action).
Sounds better now!
