There is it, I am officially 26 now. 26 years old and completely lost! As birthdays usually go, this one wasn’t too bad. Most of the people I expected to remember, did remember, but someone who I keep hoping will remember still didn’t, as always.
Some people take resolutions on their birthdays, to study better, to work harder, to earn more, to find true loveâ€¦ not me, I intent to live as I lived yesterday. For me, birthday is not such a big deal, other than the change in my age. My birth did not bring about a change in the world and so it would be vain of me to think that my birthday is a big event. But yes, for people who care about me, it is a small event. For better or for worse, I did bring a change into their lives.
So, I go along with the pretense of celebrating my birthday. Don’t get me wrong, I think that the reason why I acknowledge my birthday for my friends is because of my own selfish interest.
There are many who forget my birthday, not because they do not care about me, but probably because they did not know about it, or maybe because it slipped their minds, or maybe they understood what I felt about birthdays, or maybe, like me, they too find birthdays irrelevant.
Another year gone and I would like to think that it was a good year despite, some troubled times. I got a few friends, some of them who really made an impression on me and lost touch with a few who were close.
Another year gone and I would like to think that I am wiser from my experience.
Another year gone and I am still searchingâ€¦ answers, truth or an explanation.
Happy Birthday, to me.
