Soon we will be entering the Year of the Dragon.
Many people will be joyful more this year because the dragon, a legendary creature, symbolises characters such as dominance and ambition because of the mighty strength it possesses. Children born in this year will be considered as being outstanding, physically stronger and have better luck.  So don’t be surprised if you see more friends and family are telling you they are expecting newborns. And there is going to be a baby boom in the Year of the Dragon.  With our global population is going beyond 7 billion, it is time we thought about how the world is going to survive if the birth rate is not slowing down.
The dragon is also considered a born leader.  And don’t think every person born in the Year of the Dragon is a good leader.  A leader may bring changes which lead to disasters than harmony if he or she is too arrogant and passionate.
If the dragon is representing the heaven, then the pig seems down to earth. People normally associate pigs with things negative such as stupidity besides their character traits such as diligence and being generous.  But I admire these lovely characters.  The German playwright Bertolt Brecht once said, “Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is at their heels.”
So are you still after the dragon?  You will soon realise many good leaders or heroes were not born in the Year of the Dragon.
Bertolt Brecht has also said, “Unhappy the land that is in need of heroes.”
Anyway, I still wish you all Happy Year of the Dragon.
