This Exact Moment
I love this month; maybe it’s because it’s the Christmas month and my birth month as well. Today is my birthday. Usually, I would be so excited but I am not feeling it! I should be happy, right? I have a job, a supportive family, crazy friends and a beautiful face that is younger than my age (Yes, I just said it).
I have mixed feelings about this day, should have taken the day off, but I have too much to do. In reality, my birthday is never quite what I expect. Let’s face it, for most people, birthdays are a big deal; throwing parties, getting surprise visits from friends and family and receiving gifts….For me, I like a quiet day, one spent with family and few friends. I miss being 12, when life was simple and innocent. Looking back, it’s like a million memories flashing every second of all these years; school, university and office….family, friends and teachers…songs and movies…happiness and sadness. I am grateful to God for his blessings.
I am happy with my life and all but then I wonder…am I really happy? I mean I should be celebrating this day with my friends and family and later on enjoy a sumptuous dinner as the sun sets behind the beautiful skyline and my significant other looks into my eyes and tells me I am incredible and they don’t deserve me…(a girl can dream right?) Unfortunately, that’s not the reality. Oh Yeah! I am sitting here bored at work.
I am one year older… I can’t help feeling old…a day closer to my death; but all in all, happy birthday to me and to all the December babies out there!
