“Why do we expect something special on our birthdays? Out of 365 days a year, we tend to make this one day of the year really special.”
Yay! today, August 20, is my birthday and I really am thankful for another year in my life. Turned 22 and happy and contented. Today’s a Tuesday and I should have classes, should have my midterms but due to the bad weather, classes were suspended. I told myself not to expect anything, but it’s hard to teach yourself on what you are accustomed to. It’s a family tradition to celebrate birthdays; To have a lunch out or dinner out, to have a celebration at home, or anything. But because of the weather, mommy got sick, so we could not have anything prepared at home and we can’t leave as well. I told myself that this will be an ordinary day, okay. And I’m good with that!
What made this day special is the fact that I am celebrating my 22nd birthday, healthy, happy, contented, and grateful. Celebrated mass with my girlfriend, and made a realization:
“Out of 365 days in a year, why not try to make your birthday an ordinary day and reflect how to make the remaining 364 days really special.”
