Revel to rebel or Rebel to revel

It's Carnival time yet again 
A time of absolute folly 
Folie for the French, folia is the Brazilian way 
To talk of five days of unrestrained joy 
In English there is a word that brilliantly describe 
What Carnival lovers do best 
They revel in the the national period of Carpe diem 
Or in simpler English - YOLO must be your life guide 
By unchaining yourself of concerns and oblihations 
You revel and rebel - to hell with life's problems! 
No need for dress code - forget the social mode 
A once in a lifetime chance to break the mold. 

But Carnival is not the only time to revel and rebel 
To revel is to find joy, to live to the full 
So why not... 
Revel in your strengths, rebel against your fears 
Revel in your family and friends, rebel against hate and disunity 
Revel in what you do, rebel against accomodation 
Revel in dreams come true, rebel against abandoned dreams 
Revel in our diversity, rebel against animosity 
Revel in others' success, rebel against spite and envy 
Revel the precious gift of life, rebel against all that threatens it.

What do you revel in and what do you rebel against?
