Humans, a loving, caring and happy society. We help build and create relationships with each other, conflict-free, and respect each other around us in our society.. This is the picture we humans want to portray. How ironic?
Everyday we, humans, face problems. There is no single 'problem-free' day in our lives. Conflicts, wars, violence among religions. What is this that we're facing? And why? Back in the 1200's, humans fought a war over a bucket. Nowadays it's just wars carried on from our forefathers to us younger generations, and sometimes, people tend to cause trouble intentionally.
We, as the younger generation, listen to our parents, teachers, friends, communities. We don't ask that many questions, because they are people that we trust. How many of us have ever questioned our existence? Question to find out the reason why we're fighting with our enemies? A story *always have two sides in it. Have we ever just stop and listened to their part of the story before fighting back? Is there no way to come to a compromise but violence?
Now we talk about something that is more sensitive which I feel needs to be said out. The role of Religion contradicts itself. It is a way of life, or a set of guidelines but to some, it is the only way of life. In all religions, we practice peace, share and care. Religion did not bring about war. It is those that have misinterpreted their religions or those human desires that brought about war. In the 20th century, there was first and second World War, the Cold War, Vietnam War, and so many more that can be named; World War II cost more money, damaged more property, killed more people, and caused more far-reaching changes than any other war in history. All the deaths accumulated in the wars in the 20th Century accumulates to up to 160 million people.
Until now, the question cannot be answered. Why can violence, conflicts and wars never cease? Is it because there is a lack of mature-ness when it comes to these conflicts? Everyone knows that a person who is more matured would be the one who makes the first move and stops the fight, even if he/she will be embarrassed or whatever.
Life is something precious, we can do so much in life, experiencing so many wonderful things, achieve great challenges, but it is also very easy to take away too.
My only message is, appreciate what you still have and can afford. Everyone has limits, so know where you stand. Do not be selfish, greedy or too proud as these will cause tension among people around you. There will always be those who will purposely find troubles, ignore them, because they are not worth a single second of your life. Live life, not destroy it. Look forward, never backwards, because we humans only move forward. Take that risk, make that move. Just remember, that prevention is better than cure. Now that we've reached this level of conflict cycles, no matter how many cures we find, we can never solve and put an end to it, so prevent as much as we can, because there will never be a day brighter than where we are now, unless if fate allows, all conflicts to be rid of the face of this planet.
So many people I've come across have told me this, "The world is getting fatter"; "People are getting lazier nowadays"; "There aren't many good looking people around anymore."
Yes, I agree. Ever since the age of technology, people have been walking less and less compared to their ancestors. I know, because I am living in the so called "new generation", where most youngsters use a smartphone, drives a car, and spend time on socializing in settings such as clubs, bars, through drinking. Yes, alcohol. We party hard and make the most of our lives? Alcohol consumed in small amount is still fine but when consumed in high amounts will cause adverse effects.
The one flaw about this generation generation of humans is that, we neglect 'exercising'. It may be because we don't have time, or we're just lazy. Well, what I say to that is, make time for it. Laziness is contagious, it can spread from one person to another.
People should see that we all need some form of exercise in our life. It doesn't have to be "hard-core" exercising like hitting the gym or jogging 20 laps on the football field, but walking more, doing some stretches, playing sports, sweat! That's all we need in a day, to sweat!
Exercising helps our body in many ways. It improves blood circulation, makes our heart healthy, boosts our self-esteem. For the ageing, it prevents arthritis and a lot of back pain. For the guys, a healthy heart means more than you imagine! As for the girls, you won't be complaining about those cellulite forming or the belly fat that's growing!
As much as we all want to enjoy life, remember that exercising allows us to experience life in an even more intense way! For the teens out there, partying will feel like never before. Also when you grow old, you'll save yourselves from a lot of back aches to come. Don't neglect exercising in your lives. If you choose to neglect exercising, remember, that your future health is at risk here.
