Every festival has a story and is rooted in the values that it tries to bring forth. But the essence of every festival is eventually to celebrate life in every way. At the onset of Deepawali which is a festival lights let us celebrate life in many ways and spread our light.
To celebrate life and be the light you don’t need a lot of money or time. That would surely help but it is not a necessity. Imagine this, while you are walking down the street, preoccupied with your thoughts and a stranger walking by smiles at you and wishes you ‘Happy Diwali’ or a good day… how would you feel?
How would you feel if you received a handwritten letter of gratitude written by your spouse, friends, colleague or someone whom you know?
How would you feel if someone reminded you of your strengths and how much they have made a difference in your life through a phone call or making a handcrafted memory?
You don’t always need a diamond to make you feel special.
You don’t need to go on an expensive holiday each time to feel on top of this world
You don’t always have to hire someone else’s services to convey the way you feel.
If you feel any of these will make you happy, then don’t wait for someone else to do it for you. You do it for someone and see the joy they feel. This festive season listen to your heart and spread your light. Smile at strangers, make those phone calls, visit your friend and surprise them, participate in some cause, and be creative in the way your heart guides you.
This festive season let us make an effort to spread some joy in every way.
Let us feel festive and celebrate life every day.
