On holidays I think about meaning.
What’s the true meaning of the holiday? Why are we celebrating? What’s the reason behind it?
Today is Easter. If you’re celebrating Easter, Happy Easter to you. On Easter we think about coloring Easter eggs, Easter egg hunts, Easter baskets, decorating, and candy.
Partake. Enjoy the festivities. Have a ball.
But have you stopped and thought about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it? Have you thought about why you’re celebrating? Are you celebrating for the right reason?
Or did the underlying message get lost? Are you celebrating because society tells you to?
Stop. Think. Don’t do things just because everybody else is doing it. Don’t do things just because the seasonal aisle at Walmart or Target tells you to.
Bring back the true meaning. Live with intention. Live with purpose.
