Happy Birthday To Me!

Today is my birthday.

But like I always do every year - except last year as it was more special - there are no celebrations to speak of. Like I always do in the past, I spend my birthday reflecting about my life and the year that just passed.

If I could be honest to myself, the only thing worth celebrating about my birthday this year is the life that I still have. After going through what is perhaps the most difficult and painful experience in my life, I am just lucky to be still here writing this entry.

I’m eternally grateful to the Almighty for continuously blessing me and my love ones and albeit I have not always been the best servant I could be, the least I can do right now is try to become one.

There are myriads of people I want to thank for standing by me but in the same token, there are also those who I regret knowing. I regress not though; I believe that with every sweet memory remembered comes a painful remembrance. And I’d rather forget.

Oh, I’m not perfect. Not even close.

All I can do, really, is to keep continuing to better myself. And just hope that I would make better decisions vis a vis the things that mean the most. I’m sure I won’t always make the right choices in life but rest assured, no amount of bad decisions will impede me in my journey to live the life that I know I am destined to live.

Today is another candle in my cake. Another year to my age. More memories to add to my life. And for what has happened all this past year, I could only thank the Benevolent for making me a better and stronger person.

Today is my birthday.

I’m not that sad anymore but nor am I ecstatic.

I’m just thankful and feeling blessed.

And still sorry for certain things that have happened.

But all in all, I still believe that one fine day, truth will set me free.

Happy Birthday to me!


Big thank you to those who wished me. Everyone that mattered to me took the effort to wish except one.
