Yeah, it’s my Birthday and I know I am in for lots of Happy Birthday wishes. While, I agree that a Birthday is an important occasion in the year, I think it is highly overrated. Personally, I think more than yourself, your mother should be given credit for your birthday as she was the one who made it happen, of course with some help from your father. Thank you Mom for getting me in this world and helping me learn how to survive!!
If I was to be asked, which is the day I would want to celebrate, I would honestly not pick the day I was born, but the day I became alive. Whats the difference between the two? The day we are born, we probably just learn how to breathe on our own. The day we become alive, we have learnt how to live. While I have celebrated countless birthdays, it is only recently that I learnt how to live. Unfortunately, I don’t remember exactly the date and time when I became alive. So I don’t have one day in the year to celebrate. I think that is even better, because that allows me to celebrate each and every moment of my life. Reason for celebration – whoo hoo I am alive!!
I do however remember some friends and family who helped me to learn how to live. On my birthday this blog goes out to them. Thanks to all of you for changing my status from born to alive!
