A wise sage once said:
Forget about the past, you can’t change it.
Forget about the future, you can’t predict it.
Forget about the present, I didn’t get you one.
Clearly, the sage speaks from years of experience, years of wisdom. I’m pretty sure he’s had a lot of birthdays.
It is indisputable that birthdays are milestones of life. I for one firmly believe that birthdays are all about the person who was born many years ago on that date. The families must make it special. The day must be jovial.
Birthdays are to look back at the year and laugh and cry. Birthdays are to measure the ‘wisdom’ we gathered over the year, though funnily enough, on my winter birthday, I am as mentally retarded as the previous day. Birthdays, more than anything is to think about the person and wish them good for anything they ever do, even if it’s just survival. Birthdays are for directing the special energies of earth, the unexplained miracles, to maybe make the year ahead happy and cute for that person, and we NEED that special day to appreciate the person because we tend to forget to love everyone all the year. Everyone needs their special day.
Of course, I love birthdays. 🙂
Of course, i love others’ birthdays more than my own. Because well, what’s the fun in saying “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you” all day when you can laugh at someone else say “thank you, Thank you, Thank you” all day 😀
Think about your b’days someday.. Not too many years ago you were just a big round baby, so unlike anyone else! Its a funny thought, imagining your teacher crying for milk, or your boyfriend running in knickers around the house 🙂 Lol.. Meanwhile, happy b’day to the beautiful people who are a year wiser today.
A very happy birthday in fact, for gaining the wisdom over the years of how to poop, when to sleep, and how to explain this oh-so-strange grumble in the tummy as need of food!That at least we learn for certain, if nothing else!
Oh and one last tip for all the people who are critical of birthdays-
If you really think birthdays are all about age and getting older and hence dying away, don’t worry, I’ll love to have your piece of cake too.
