No, it’s not a New Year’s countdown. We’ve already passed through that one. I would dare to say this countdown is probably the most important countdown of our lives, a countdown of a lifetime.
It’s time to roll up our sleeves and positively impact our society, but first, we need to start with ourselves to begin making changes in our communities. Let me state a quote by Jeff Bridges which says:
“The way to change the world is through individual responsibility and taking local action in your community.”
Hate won’t get you far. It will only make things worse. Why not letting love defeat hate? Why not transforming evil into something good and valuable so that future generations can continue doing so? When the greatest philosophers of our times say that one can’t exist without the other, they’re right. In this case, love without hate and good without evil. That’s why we must show how powerful love is and good against evil.
It starts with you, my dear reader. Don’t forget that you’re stronger than you think you are. Respecting yourself means valuing your good deeds and virtues but also contemplating on them. Having flaws is also a part of us. They make us even more beautiful inside if we manage to learn something worthwhile just by exploring them.
We are all particles of one and super huge organism, which means that we need to cooperate to survive. So, why hurt each other? It doesn’t make sense. If we continue this way, we’re going to destroy our fantastic organism. We’ll tear it apart. Is this what we really, honestly want? I don’t think so.
