Happy Birthday to Me

Tomorrow i.e. on 31st January is my birthday. This one’s gonna be the most sober birthday in these 22 years of my life. Unlike the earlier years i don’t have new clothes to wear, i don’t have a cake and i don’t have any gifts. Few people will call me and the day will pass like any other day. Though it sounds like that but i am not complaining. The people who really love me will call me, even if they won’t due to some reasons they’ll at least think about me once and that is enough for me. I am the one who has chosen to live this way. I must not complain about it.

Last year's cake. My boyfriend calls me MPS. No one knows what it stands for, that's why they wrote it on my cake. ;-)
Last year’s cake. My boyfriend calls me MPS. No one knows what it stands for, that’s why they wrote it on my cake. πŸ˜‰ and i won’t tell what it means. He has never given me a cute name and like all names given by him i hate it too.

I am not happy, I am not sad, I am just okay and sometimes its okay to be okay. I recently read the book “The Power” by Rhonda Byrne. This book has inspired me and i am starting to believe in the law of attraction. We do get the things we really want in life, we just need to have faith and believe on the power of our dreams. We must love the things we want in our life. Love has immense power, the power to make dreams come true. And in this new year of my life i’ve decided to be optimistic about life. I’ve decided to be positive and hopeful, to believe in the power of my dreams. I don’t know how all this works but i want to believe that it does work. I don’t know where life is leading me, whether i’ll be able to get into a college or not, but somehow i want to believe that i’ll. I am not going to be a pessimist anymore. And i’ll try my best to be positive even if life forces me not to be that.

So keeping all my wonderful birthday memories in my mind, i am going to start a new year. I don’t know how its going to be but i do have faith that everything will fall back into place. I read a quote recently in one of the blogs, it said,

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born
and the day you find out why.”

Its been 22 years since i was born, I think very soon i’ll find out the reason too.

Happy Birthday to me!!!

    As it turns out, I had a major party last night with some real friends that have managed to hold on to me over the years. Most of them had breakups in the recent past, and I arranged for a reunion of sorts- alcohol, weed and of course, bitching πŸ˜‰ Pyaar ka Panchanam style πŸ™‚
    Inadvertantly, we all did celebrate your birthday. So you want the bill ?

      • Yes, you should. We all want to know how you guys feel about it. I feel that most relationships don’t work out because of this inability of guys to talk about things that matter in a relationship. We never get to know how you feel. And i think we deserve to know.
        Well, saying no to alcohol or any other intoxicants is more of a personal choice. I don’t ask people to stay away from it. Its their choice. It scares me though. You should have seen my face, when i first saw my friends drinking in front of me. I haven’t grown up in that part.

      • You are absolutely right. It is a matter of personal choice. And to not resort to alcohol, is a fair thing to do, if you can. I have a different agenda with alcohol altogether, but more on that some other day πŸ˜‰
        What you are referring to is the inability to communicate and it is something that does need to be paid attention to. Of course, my experiences have taught me that girls are pathetic communicators- but, we must not be prisoners of past. So… I guess both genders need to pay requisite attention to that.

      • See that is why I did not say that it was me who did that. But I guess you figured it out anyway πŸ˜›

        I have seen that happen to people. Saw them get obsolete, and that is why we need to upgrade time and again. Learn something new, do something out of the way and so on and so forth… Not just because we want others to be interested in us but also because we should be interested in ourselves. I started dancing lessons last week for this precise reason πŸ˜‰

        Come on ! Its not that bad. Ok. Well…it is bad πŸ˜› But I guess when one stays at home, there is a different flavour of celebrations. I don’t remember when I was home last. But you know what… you should definitely try doing something interesting. You are young n you are creative… I am sure you can come up with something. Like I spent my birthday in 2010 in an orphanage. Something like that… πŸ™‚

So yes… money does matter, irrespective of what anyone says.
        Read this quote somewhere: Having a poor father is not your fault, but getting a poor father-in-law is definitely yours… πŸ˜‰ I think too much money would be a problem. But a little bit of that could be good. Like …say… 75K a month in B’lore for you or, 15K for me in Delhi ? πŸ˜› I am sorry I am obsessed with numbers πŸ™‚
