We all are running, running in the race called Life and yes is the run really smooth. Breaks and stumbles all along the path. We fall, We break down, We are bruised and we decide to give up, not to run any further. The pressure of performing, of a passion left behind, some unanswered calls, an unexpected lie, words said but not meant, an apology that didn’t happen and a life that we never imagined.
In this mess called routine, comes Christmas, the day of being merrier and merrier. On a foggy winter morning when you see cute little santas waiting for their school bus holding their mother’s hand ,u realize Christmas must be round the corner. The day when carols and cakes take a centre stage . Isn’t it sweetness overloaded?
It’s not about the gifts or fretting over holiday plans
It’s about reconnecting with loved ones, practicing gratitude
It’s about forgetting all of the struggle and strife that mayhave occurred over the past year.
It’s time to forgive and forget and let go of this year’s struggles.
And the best part of this red and white shaded festival is the cute, plumpy, teddy like Santa. Santa signifies the joy of giving, the joy of sharing and love all around. Santa is one such idea where logic and reasoning takes a back seat and the happiness and Merry takes over. Isn’t it like love, you have to believe in it to experience it.
For everyone who is having a tough time, do remember:
“Your worth is not a math problem, just because you do everything right and the results don’t come out right, it doesn’t mean that there is a something wrong with you. It’s not about what you bring to the table, it’s about you coming to the table at all, and the sooner you realize that, the sooner you will be able to enjoy your time there. Life is not about being like all the rest of the world, just because you are single, it does not mean you are any less valuable. Just because you didn’t pass that class, it does not mean you are worthless to society. You are so much more than the “no’s” and the confusion, you are a living and breathing soul, one that is called beautiful and wonderful! No star stops burning in the sky because it isn’t a planet, it does what it needs to do, so must you. So be, and continue to be, until you realize what that truly means because when you see what you really are, you start to see life differently. You were never meant to compete with those around you, you were meant to live life in a way that invites others to join you in this journey.”
I wish you a little santa. Merry Christmas.
