Life is something worth celebrating, if you have life you have everything or at least the basic ingredient to getting everything or progressing towards something. After all you cannot do anything if you are dead. It is just the fact of the situation. Life is precious so do not waste it or destroy yourself for an unworthy cause.
People celebrate life when they become successful. But when are you successful? Nowadays you tend to learn the narrow idea of success, money and power. So much so they will die to achieve it. That is the life we strive towards, the belief we hold to our hearts. If you are not rich you are not living, that is what is believed.
Life is funny, you never know what it will throw at you when you least expect it. Consider it for a second, there were times when you were happy were they not? Did it involve money and power? Or did It usually involve doing something you really like?
What you end up realizing it is the actions, people we love, habits and places we go to that make us happy. Some of these might have a cost to it, but let us not focus on that. It is our actions or people we love that make us happy.
So live to go further do not stop, otherwise you would be dead in spirit. You must go further in life not only for yourself but to uplift the souls of the people that you love. If they see you down they will feel down as well.
Celebrate that your alive everyday, just because your not a big success, does not mean your every day effort is meaningless. Popping bottles every night is not what I mean (unless you can afford it), but you know pat yourself on the back at least. It is those small goals you should be happy about. Have fun with the little things you do.
Never despair in the idea that your life is not worth anything. Life is hard yes and can be cruel, but if you stop believing, you will stop working towards it. If you stop working towards making your life better, you will never get anywhere, might as well buy a lotto ticket(good luck).
Everyday in life is a celebration in it self, living it is a greater celebration, improving and working on it is the greatest celebration.
