People call different days as big occasions or time for grand celebrations. Some of them have those religious festivals like Onam, Deepavali, Christmas, Vishu, Easter, Bakrid, Ramzan and a lot more while a few others try to hold on to the wedding days of their own, and also wait for the special occasions of their friends and relatives. But then one interesting question remains here: Why wait for a big event to come to our life when we can just go on and #CelebrateLife everyday?
I haven’t been a big fan of celebrations for quite some time. Almost every special day has been just another day in the last few months. Yes, the days of big celebrations were surely there, but they have faded into the emptiness which I have discovered. Now, the only thing which is left about them happens to be a certain part of the memories which can be temporarily awakened by a look at that folder in which all the old photos are stored. But I dare not to, because they are dead memories.
All these celebrations had one common thing which is the talk about others, and the worst side of the same comes from those relatives who say that I am the next candidate at a wedding function. There are actually two sides to the same. The first one is that I am sure that I am not the next, and it has been perfectly proven by younger cousins who can’t wait to fall in love and overtake. The second side is that none of these relatives who make the point that I am next will ever try to proceed with the same and help me in the process. So, once again I say – #CelebrateLife everyday and not think about any special day coming, and I would need the following for the same.
Simona the Valiant Kitty: Simona has been a big part of the daily celebrations. You just can’t have a day of joy without giving her the chance to be part of it. She makes her way through everything, closed doors, windows which never open and the leaps of faith which even the Devil’s hound kitten would not dare to make. She is like a legend in finding where the celebrations should be, and spreads happiness there by hugging the legs. Well, after all why should humans have all the fun? Kittens need their due because they can hug trees better.
The Great Vampire Gardens: No, the name is not official. Such a name would be devastating for mother who looks after it more than I do. Still, I call it by that name which is applied to the place whenever I am wandering through there. Well, there is a lot of happiness when there are trees and flowers around, and they play a significant part in making our lives a celebration. The first fruit to have grown at the new part of our garden is the Star Fruit, and I believe that it was just the preface to a never-ending celebration at the garden! It gets better with the beauty of monsoon!
That daily blog post: What is a celebration if there is no writing? Yes, there is the need to write something all the time. I have never desired for any escape from this part of the daily celebrations. I have doubted myself a lot, but for the past few months, never hesitated from coming up with something new and posting it on every other day, no matter what kind of troubles I had to face. It has been significant in getting this blog to twenty thousand visitors, and it is another reason for celebration!
What to read for the day: There is also the desire for daily reading. Every day, I hope to read and learn something new and make a good choice about what to read. These days, it has been mostly restricted to History, Geography and General Knowledge due to the upcoming PSC exams, but I have done that with joy and as a celebration. Reading has always been a celebration for me too – I have never complained about what I had to read and did try my best to like what was there, with the exceptions of some scientific things.
For now, the only thing that bothers me is that I need these things better, at a higher level! ***The photos used in this blog post were taken by me on my Asus Zenfone 5.
