To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
Even though this is the last day of Kwanzaa, it's still very important. I must say I am very proud to have finally finished a Kwanzaa project!! Uh! It feels good, makes me happy lol. Anyway on with the show right??
This principle has more than just belief in it. It has inspiration and hope and support and many other feelings in it. To have the faith to believe in our people, families, and other important figures to reflect on the victory of our struggles is a beautiful thing. We put our belief and all our emotion into these people around us and that encourages them to do whatever they can to give back not only to you but to everyone around them. Unfortunately not too many people do this and it's kind of sad. Because if we don't have someone to believe in us, we won't have the courageousness to be confident enough to face Life and the World and their obstacles head on and see victory in the end.
I also think when faith is the topic of discussion, people try to associate it with religion. Not saying it doesn't play a major role in religion. However it also plays a role outside of it in every day life. Sometimes having faith in things brings more of a peaceful result than the anxiety associate with hope and the restlessness that follows. I think faith can even be used to show your beliefs and promote them in a positive and non-selfish way.
But in this day and age, many people have lost faith in just about everything, including themselves and it's sad. It's even more difficult to reclaim it and let it brighten up your darkened world. Lost hope and lost faith, promotes a person to become a depressed wanderer. Because of that it's hard to come out of that state of unhappiness. Believe me I know!
I think for the new year, if we have even a small amount of faith and look to rebuild it and replenish it to make our world a little better. I think we can look forward to more of a positive outlook on life and hopefully begin a trend that'll help future generations hold on to their faith and appreciate our struggles in trying to replenish it for them.
Happy Kwanzaa Everyone!
