#FolkloreThursday

In Latin cultures, they take a cup or bucket of water then throw it over their shoulder shortly after New Year's Eve to symbolize getting rid of last years’ sadness and problems.

(It's not too late to do that now.)

Issue 8, Vol. 2 "Fight & Flight"

Let things be.

There was a point when I’d get annoyed whenever someone gave me that advice; it sickened me. I was being a stubborn person and appreciated the day more if things went my way. My punch line? I love The Beatles. And what kind of a Beatles fan am I to go against one of their greatest hits?

Honestly, this year has been exhausting. And I’m not just talking about my personal life; I’m talking about everybody around the world. Humanity has grown fragile: easily offended and eager to protest. All the time. It seems that most of us have been paranoid over a lot of things. That, for some reason, has started a worldwide tantrum. Although I know these emotions are inevitable, do forgive my colloquial language when I say: can we all just chill for a sec? I’m not asking you to stop entirely whatever it is you’re doing; I am simply asking you to take a breather. Another year is about to end. When we look back at these past months, weeks, days, and hours—how much time did we spend worrying and panicking?

Every single day we make choices. Our days consist of question after question. But the biggest choice we have to make, we make when life gives us a plot twist and we catch ourselves thinking, “Now, what?” These are moments when we begin to understand that most of the things in life are beyond our control, and no amount of anger nor persistence can change the natural course of the universe and what it has thrown to us. In physiology, it is taught that the “fight or flight” scenario is common to all human beings. But just because it’s common, doesn’t mean there’s no other way to deal with life’s surprises. Undeniably, the only reason we resist something or run away from it is because we can’t control it anymore. To put it simply: the only thing holding us back is how we think.

From the eyes of Justin Rosenberg to the sensational experience of being immersed in Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, I hope you love the issue we have put together. The stories between the pages of this publication is a reminder to fight the urge of wanting to control things and to uncage ourselves from the obsession of agonizing over what will happen next.

Since the very first issue of this year, you and I, dear reader, have grown so much. I don’t know exactly what you’re going through but I’m sure a lot of moments have overwhelmed and shaped whoever we are now.

And if you’re currently facing something threatening right now, I’m not letting you choose whether to fight or fly. I am challenging you to break free from all the worries inside your head, and find comfort in the fact that Paul McCartney was right.

Fight and fly!

Oh and, happy holidays.
