Monday Moaning: 2014+1
Another year down the drain another year to look back at and say, wait that was it? Seriously, it is gone already? Stop worrying.
We all make decisions to make a better tomorrow and improve our way of living. And while there is nothing wrong with that as some of us need to raise a family. It isn’t always easy making choices for those around you, but we make them in their best interest. Maybe 2014 has been a year of that and it just didn’t work out.
Some might have been thinking and I may have been one of them, that we had enough time to do the things we wanted to change or do. But we do not always perceive time as is and make mistakes. Sure there have been days i could have done what I wanted to do and ended up online killing people releasing some frustration. There have been days I wanted to do so much at once it sill fell apart.
Though I may not have reached great heights with the things i et out to do, the little things have gotten more important because of that. Thinking big is great and having the ambition to reach it is a great way of looking forward. 2015 might end up being the year everything changes. I like to think hey will change for all of us and not just for those close by for once.
Don’t get me wrong I know I just mentioned those small things that matter. I mean reaching out to a family who was not invited over at the other family because of a child is what I done on Christmas. Sharing a meal with those who were unloved by their own family and giving a Christmas never to forget.
Or stopping in the pouring rain to help change a tire. It may have screwed up my own time and stopped me from doing what I set out to do, it did not matter and it doesn’t now.
Those moment kept me going and though I did not fulfil what I set out to do, i have no regrets. I had a great year with lots of changes including the small delicate changes that happened here on my blog. Time may not have been so kind and disaster may have happened more then once, i came here to share my heart, my opinions and fantasies. I never forget what I wanted to do and every plan is still floating around in my mind alive and well, poking me to do them. It may not be today or tomorrow but having dreams and desires who want to be fulfilled do he to keep on moving forward.
2014 is behind us and everything we did brought us here. We carried around grief, pain, suffering, tears, love and even hate. But we are here today remembering and making sure tomorrow will be better. We made mistakes throughout the year, maybe it was shooting down a plane, killing an unarmed man, robbing a bank, or taking hostages and those are just things big in the news. We carry on forgiving and hoping they learn from their mistakes. Will the man shoot down another plane, we do not know, let us hope not. Will one guy rob a bank again, he might, but we hope not.
It is easy to say and think just to hope, or can we change the world in such a manner we do not need weapons any more or have people not want more money for what ever reason. It may be just a dream but one I like to try and follow. Because whether there are weapons or not it is us the people and human kind who chooses to use them. It is us who think little of others and abuse them or worse. Can we change our mindset now that is so much harder to achieve.
We can stay angry and even hate those who done these terrible things, but it does not change what happened an it only changes us in people like them. Picking up rocks to throw and hurt even more people, fellow humans who have done nothing wrong. Plunder and pillage stores of those who worked hard their entire lives and think nothing of it. That robber done the same, that hostage taker did to, but are we like them as well.
A year gone and that is that, we may regret what we have done but we cannot undo it. Instead we can be wiser for next year and help others not make the same mistake. It is not that you need to focus on a whole city, just one person you can help is al it takes. And if each and everyone would do so who know what we might change the next year. Share a can of beans with a family who has kids and is struggling, Share a cup of rice. You have no idea what that would mean to a family in need.
2014 plus one, I hope it will be a year where we stand together as one, helping each other instead o telling others what to do as if we know better. I do not know everything but like to share what I do. Not to make them but give them tools to change if they so truly desire.
2015 will be a year where I start looking forward seeing a baby boy born. Just her smile a year ago meant so much and that smile is growing bigger by the minute. My thoughts are with her.
Then there will be all this art and writing so much to read, watch and listen to. I cannot wait to see what you will all bring me. Discussions born to learn from each other while respecting a view or opinion. I all happens here on WP with people, with whom we share everything.
The new year might have some big changes coming up for me, but they are my responsibilities to face mistakes from a past I will have to answer to.
I wish each and everyone of you a happy upcoming new year. Not a year to feel ugly about one self, but share the beauty that is inside you.
Let us change the future.
