SALtoshi Whitepaper #107
Christmas is such a dominant holiday season, and has such a profound effect on many of us — Christian or not. We simply cannot ignore the end of another year and approach of a new one. December is a pretty big deal, which might cause us to simultaneously reflect on ourselves and pursue self-improvement, along with everything else happening. Also, this time of the year can be very uplifting, like we’re given a new spirit and fresh start. After all, we’re still alive, so if we’re not spending our time trying to become better people, what is our purpose?
Purpose — something everybody needs to feel. Not saying we want to be used, but we want to be useful. The instinctual desire to make a difference. We’re like tools and we want to fix things. Humans have been living and dying on planet earth for thousands of years. I don’t believe anybody has ever accepted a life of nothingness. Dig deep enough on any person throughout the history of humanity, and we’re bound to find individuality attached to everyone. Everybody is unique and everybody has a purpose.
Other than pursuing Christianity and writing about Bitcoin, I have no idea what I’m supposed to do. I’m no longer aware of the big picture. However, no need to panic. I’m blessed enough to be self-aware and notice small details. For example — I need to be more patient and self-disciplined. Some of my worst mistakes can be attributed to a lack of patience and self-control, not because of ignorance. Our past experiences can be haunting, which can lead to some unpleasant emotions and thoughts, especially during Christmas. We literally cannot change the past. The best we can do is move forward while trying to find and fulfill our purpose. We’re still alive for a reason.
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!
Until next time,
P.S. — New Year’s Resolutions are another way to procrastinate. I’ve been asking my Mom to teach me how to cook for too long, and I’ve always failed to take the initiative. Until yesterday, when we started making sauce, and today we will make Italian wedding soup. Why wait to become better people when we can start now?
