I can’t believe I am already 33 years old.
I can remember when I was just learning the meaning of the word decade and I can’t believe I’ve been into three already.
To be honest, I haven’t thought of anything very important to say this time, but I thought I need to write something. Every year I write a birthday post and it is fun to back read as every post is different from the other. The writing style, the content and the feeling of the posts are all so different.
So far, my 30th birthday post is the most sensible of all, reading it made me feel I was older wiser at 30 than at 33.
I celebrated my birthday with my husband this time as I can’t go home. I was just given 7 days off so it’s not worth going home. And it just felt like taking a good time off from all the stress at work.
I didn’t think about anything during the day. I just took a rest. Ate all I could. Swim as much as I could. Sleep as much as I could. (Talk about ageing here).
Well this time to be honest, I don’t have much to say or to wish for. I’ve had so many realizations on random days and I have so many things that I wish for and dream about and it’s not necessary for these to be mentioned only during one’s birthday.
All I want to say this time is thank you. In this world full of busy lines, never ending emails, work fights and stress, I appreciate that I had the time to take in some fresh air, listen to the waves, watch the sunset, walk without having to hurry, walk on the shore watching the waves erase my footprints on the sand. I appreciate the fact that I am where I am and I was given great opportunities in life that others can only wish for. I am grateful that I am able to do the things that I want to do. I am grateful for having great people around me online and offline.
I can only be grateful. At this point in life, I can only be grateful.
