A birthday isn’t just a moment of joy, of celebration, or to spend with family and friends; it’s also a moment to spend with ourselves. It allows us to think about the year that’s just ended and retrace our steps. What will Louis Tomlinson think about his 23rd year as it comes to an end?
Here, explained by five quotes that perfectly fit Louis’ birthday, are five reasons why this year has been important to Louis, why he should celebrate this birthday with joy and happiness. What he’s leaving behind is worth more than what he believes.
5. I hope that something will come out of so much effort – Claude Monet
Louis works and he works hard. He knows the value of doing his best while also knowing that winning isn’t everything. We’ve all read about his tears for not feeling like an integrant part of his band, for feeling like a dispensable part of his own songs – he knows what it feels like to give his best and not feel like it was enough. This 24th of December though, he should think about the beautiful life he’s created and be proud of the words he’s written, and his very powerful voice.
4. Whatever you are, be a good one – Abraham Lincoln
Doing good means giving smiles, giving to those in need, and doing nice things for the sake of kindness. Louis is a representation of that. Louis should think about all the fans he made smile with his promises, his reassurances, and in always giving his best. His heart of gold doesn’t miss a chance to give and in 2015 he let that heart guide him.
3. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it – Claude Monet
The aim of life is to better ourselves and to gain as much experience as we can. This year Louis has proven his desire to give more and to do more. We’ve seen him dealing with a world tour, a new album, with football, the music business, and with the world of The X Factor judges. Louis is living his life to the fullest and gaining as much experience as possible. His birthday is an occasion for him to be proud.
2. You can kiss your family and friends goodbye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach – Frederick Buechner
The love that Louis shows for his family is one of the best things about him. Johanna tweets constantly about how proud she is of him and how much she loves him. This year we saw him be protective and proud of his sister Lottie who joined him as a stylist on their OTRA Tour. Despite the miles of distance Louis manages to keep a beautiful relationship with his family back home and be a guide and a support for his siblings. There is nothing that Louis should be more proud of than that.
1. Sure I am of this, that you have only to endure to conquer – Winston Churchill
While looking back at Louis’ 23rd year there’s no doubt that the rumors and the stories – both positive and negative – will be things he focuses on. He won’t be happy for every memory he revisits, but he’ll know that he was made stronger because of them. He should be proud of what he’s been through because it shows how brave he is. He fights through difficult situations to arrive at better ones.
Louis’ birthday is important because it’s the celebration of his beautiful soul and his massive heart. Its a celebration of someone so many people have and will always look up to.
