What is a Holiday?

If you are on holiday then you should have time to give this a read through. A holiday is a day set aside by custom or by law in which normal activities, especially business or work, are to be reduced. Generally holidays are intended to allow individuals to celebrate or commemorate something of cultural or religious significance. 

But anyways while you are on holiday,then use the time celebrate that you live and  be present in the time that is now. Listen when you are having conversations, breathe when you are in nature, sit down somewhere quiet and think about what role you want to play in this theatre of life. Think about those who does not know what a holiday is, think about those that only focus on making it through today, think about how privileged you are who can lay still on a beach, with out a single worry other then licking the sun, Think about the sand underneath your body and what it is made of, think about why thunder sometimes happen after a very hot day, think about why rain is important for your existence (if it rains one day that is). And when you are chatting to your friends about the fact that there is not enough holiday, then think about how you can fill your life with things that are inspiring and not only motivating. There is a difference between saying: If i make it through this fall at work then I can buy a car, and saying I wake up every morning because I know I might be small, but the things I do echoes. 

Dance and be amazed of the movement you body can achieve and that people in a different part of the world who lives very different from you can make the same movement.
Laugh, and know that a parrot can also laugh in the same way
Groom your hair with your fingers, and know that a baboon grooms their friends in the same way
Lean your head against someone and know that lions do the same.
Make fire to barbecue hamburgers, and think about the people that make fire only with sticks or flint in 2013.
Think about how lucky you are to be able to share all these similar things with animals and people you do not know, or have seen once on tv or on a postcard. So if you did not go abroad this year, you can also know that you have been traveling in so many of the actions you have done.
Do not close your eyes to find all of this diversity is gone, when you finally get out of the holiday buzz. 
Let this summer not only be about receiving food, sun, fun, good weather, but let it also be about giving back.
