This quote by little eight year old Martin Richard, who we lost so tragically at the Boston marathon bombings, will forever stand the test of time throughout all the new Year’s, as the best quote ever.
With this being the last week of 2018 and the new 2019 right around the corner, is this really going to be a new year, or just much of the same? Seems like we spend more time on partying in the new year, than doing anything in truly making it a new year. We all take too much for granted of the leader’s we put in place to bring real change to us, when all we need to do is, each and every one of us, with our actions, are the ones that can bring real change around us. Real change starts with us, we first need to get off our fannies, put in the work, instead of partying at every turn, so not just we ourselves can be at peace, but all those around us can be at peace as well.
We all set these resolutions of which we never follow through on? We only never follow through because talk is cheap and actions speak louder. A resolution is meaningless unless you follow through on what you say and not speak, just to heat up the air with hot air from your mouth around you. If you know you are not going to follow through on your resolution, then say nothing and just let your actions say what you really want to say. Resolutions are useless anyways, only because it’s the lazy way out of a conversation, instead of confidently speaking in a conversation and truly making the change you want to make.
Why do we call it a ” New Year”, if we still do all the same things, except the fact that the year itself has changed. Whether it is domestic or abroad, we never really have any real change, we have a lot of hot air talking of change, but the true change we never receive. Some may change the approach of the change, then say they made change, but the same old same old still comes back to us, as the change disappears. True change comes from deep within each of us, we first have to be on the same page and not resist any change, whether it’s from ourselves or another. As we the people look toward our so called leaders for the change, how can they truly bring real change to us, if they themselves can not even see eye to eye, without the bickering and the arguing between each other? If someone comes forth with real change, it gets immediately shot down, cause it didn’t come from they themselves, which in the long run, has us all stay within ourselves, instead of working towards bringing real change to us all, so we than can move forward on our paths, of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.
Happy New Year is truly each one of us coming together in peace and happiness, while we bring real change to each other, that will help us all be stronger and better than the year prior. Happy New Year is not about just changing a year, then we all continue all the hatred and ugliness of each other. We all may think that real change starts at the top? On the contrary…….. It starts with each one of us, whether your on the top, the bottom or the middle, working together in harmony and helping to bring real change to us all, moving forward throughout this journey of life.
We can still celebrate the coming of a new year, but there is a big difference between a celebration and just partying in the new year. You celebrate cause you are working at the true change, to bring into the new year and share with all around you. You party in the new year, only to wake up not feeling good or remembering anything of the night before. Somewhere in the translation of Happy New Year, we have lost the true message of bringing real change around us, which is why we have to look back, not to dwell in the past, but to see where we went wrong, fix what we need to fix, so we than can move forward along our paths of this journey through life, better and stronger, as the proper and real change comes to us and we all can be at, the true peace and happiness always.
” Happy New Year is not just the changing of a few numbers on the calendar, it is the bringing of true change to us all always”
” A true Happy new Year should bring us all peace and happiness always”
” ” No more hurting people peace” this should be more than a quote and help us all bring real change to each other”
” A celebration is happy and peaceful, as a party is something a lot of times we do not remember”
