This is going to be my second time to spend my birthday away from my family. As much as I wanted to stay strong and happy but in moments like this, I seriously miss my entire family. My mom who always greets me Happy Birthday in the morning, my brothers who unexpectedly give me gifts out of the blue and yes friends who sends messages in my phones. Nothing beats the old traditional birthday celebration. Apart from missing lechon (the famous roasted pig in Cebu), I miss my birthday party too. I miss hanging out with my friends and going to church early in the morning to thank God for another year of happiness and good health.
But despite of all the sadness I am feeling today, I have gained a lot of wonderful experiences being alone as well. I am not technically alone, I still have my friends with me. Thanks to Facebook for constantly reminding my friends that it’s my birthday, at least in that moment people would take time to write “Happy Birthday” in your wall.
And yes to my hub who is as excited as I am on my big day. I am no longer excited to spend my birthday maybe because seeing my age increase every year gives me the scary feeling. I cannot imagine I still have 5 more years to finish all the things that I need to do before I reach 30. Time has gone by so quickly, this year has been a great blessing to me. Tragic things may have happened but I was blessed with wonderful people and great opportunities this year.
I am loved by a lot of my friends and at this age, I am able to experience the fun and excitement of life. I can say I am almost half way through. I have gained great friends and was able to sift who my real friends are. I am wise in making decisions but still childish with my wants and needs. I still need to be responsible in taking actions and will try to be more discipline in terms of promises and future plans. But with this amazing year, I am blessed not just with my personal life but with my virtual life as well. Friends from around the world who I have met online and became a great part of my life. Being 25 is not a big deal but I wish I was still a kid, where I do not have to worry about money, love and life. I have gained a lot of bruises and healed my own wounds. I have broken my heart, fixed it, mended it and was able to bring it back as a whole again.
Life’s has its ups and down, those trials and bumpy roads are just spices in our life, that makes every journey worthwhile. I may piss and scream sh*ts but in the end I have to say, I am a complete a HUMAN person. I have a bad-ass life casts with bad-ass characters in my story. My story does not end here, this is just another chapter of my so called paradise. Remember I am your ultimate Drama Queen.
Happy Birthday to me and to everyone who is born on the 23rd of November. Happy Birthday strong and passionate Sagittarian.
