This year, Christmas is a different story.
I met a lot of people in my 2017, more than any other year i think.
Christmas was a different tale in different lives:
I met gems, who celebrate two Christmases.. because their parents are not together
I met some who cannot celebrate Christmas with their loved one because their families have different religions..
I met single moms, who thought this year, that was it, it’s all i can take.
I met friends, who celebrated Christmas with a heavy heart that’s unexpectedly lost somebody very dear
I met parents who celebrate without their kids or grandchildren because the adults don’t really “ talk “ anymore
I met multiple people who lost their *Mum* this year and their dad only few months back
I met individuals who celebrate Christmas with a very sick parent or sibling at home or on a hospital bed..
I met humans who celebrate Christmas in austerity, due to life’s tighter economic conditions year on year.
In that same year:
I met people who have little in their pockets but rich on contentment and enjoyment of exactly what they have.
I met people whose support system at home is indeed broken up,
yet who see the little hidden advantages even in that and who are on the roll to be better at evthng they do- talk about strength and positivity in life!
I met people with heavy hearts, yet who carry more happiness to every other human they meet.
I met new moms who were never that warm at heart or that optimistic..spending their first Christmas with their baby in a real home.
I met some others who gave in a lot of compromise- loving it- to prove that religion is just a tag and you can live and love and learn about other religions and still be part of a real family
I met people whose close ones have such poor health or who are very sick themselves .. yet, being around them is like a humungous wave of optimism, where all is rosy in this life, for them, and for others.
These, well, they turned out to be the same people having all the hardships listed above… 🙂
Life is full of stark contrasts;
It takes away things, giving others.
It closes a door, but opens others. Hurts but then mends..
Just like it takes sadness, to touch real happiness
It takes failure to know success
It takes heartaches, to find the one, that’s how “you’ll know”
It takes having so little, to appreciate the bundle of #blessings you now have
to celebrate Christmas and every day you get in this life, knowing you have a lot more than many, many.
It takes hardships and strength and multiple attempts to be who you are today,
To know how to spend this Christmas just #grateful for having those you have around you Now.
The Now is so short, yet is a lot.
Yes, They may not be here tomorrow,
you may not be here tomorrow either;
This Christmas, i saw how frail we are just by being Human.
Yet, with a heart that treasures what you have and overlooks what you don’t have,
You can live like a king:
so humble, that his blessings just flow upon every human in his kingdom.
Happy Christmas my most beautiful blessings and gems💫.
It takes so much more courage to:
Love and live a religion of Love,
Than to walk with the world, go with the flow even if it’s a wrong one.
“You can’t blend in, when you were born to stand out”, ever ✨.
Stand your ground;
You can’t change who YOU are at heart and in soul, then maybe the world can Start to change the way it sees.
All my love,
