It’s my birthday this Saturday and I have no plans for that day except for having my passport renewed in the morning. Last year I invited my colleagues at work for an out of town swimming, only one third came. It’s been magical! We got lots of dishes that seemed bottomless. I enjoyed my day a lot, but a part of me of course is sad for those who were not able to make it. I use it to my advantage when I need something from my mates and they can’t say no when I remind them that they blew off my invitation.
I feel blue on my silver year but in a different way. I don’t feel old neither do I feel worthless nor closer to death. I look younger than my age not only because I stand half my age, but because I avoid getting stressed by keeping myself calm even in pressing situations.
Just because I take it easy doesn’t mean it’s easy. I just prefer to look at the brighter side.

I have lots of good memories of my past birthdays. I just miss a lot of people let alone be with someone thousands of miles from where I am… even without talking, just walk and sit hand in hand.
I am most likely to spend my day with my family. If not on my birthday, we usually have a celebration for April babies on a summer family getaway.
I am so much blessed and I am very thankful. I had prayed for a lot of things and did not get any of it. I got lots of things that are so much better. Indeed He knows best.
Life has many imperfections but there’s a lot more reason to be happy. http://t.co/2DtNkcFtYp
