It’s another November 16 for me. An interesting one, personally, cause it’s the 25th that I get to go through up until now. Not that 25 represents anything special, it’s just a good number, you see? Some call it the silver age, but I think it’s special cause it can be divided entirely by the number 5.
Did the special number make me go through this day any differently?
Some of my friends had been wondering why I didn’t make any wishlist for my birthday this year. Isn’t there anything I want to receive as presents? Sure. I’m still that girl who’s waiting for her own piano, microwave oven, and tickets around-the-world. This year, I also want Christina Aguilera’s new album Lotus, the novel Perks of Being a Wallflower, and nice Tees. Haha.
But I didn’t make any wishlist. Mainly because at some point in the depths of my mind, I think I should ask myself more about what I have and still have to give, instead of what I want to receive.
I’ve been going through several things the past months that had made me rethink a lot of aspects about myself and my life. It’s just really the point in my life where I realize that I am held responsible for the decisions I make, the way I interact with people, how I choose to work, and so on and so forth. So I waited for today not having any expectations but for myself to make better and wiser choices.
I am so grateful that at the time that I feel like I am one of the lowest person I know right now, I am shown that there is a lot of love around me. Life is funny, you may say. I say life is full of God’s kindness and mercy. And so, while I have the chance, I’d like to remind myself of how blessed I am to have awesome people in my life. I was so overwhelmed this morning, I actually dedicate my birthday wishes to you all. I hope I can be a better person in what way possible for you all.
P.S. My birthday surprise was awesome. Kkk~
- cheers to all -
