It's My Birthday?!

for the first time in the history of mankind, i'm not excited for my birthday. before, i would always look forward to my birthday. my birthday is my favorite holiday. (yes, i consider it a holiday. hehe). but now, i am not excited. i really am not looking forward to november __. why? because:

1. i won't have any celebrations - to make this birthday unique from all my other birthdays, i plan not have any celebrations. i even volunteered my bday to be the day for tristan's bday celeb or the day we'll give his gift. as long as it's not about me.

2. i have lots of things in my mind right now and my bday is the least of it.

3. i'll again grow old but not grow up - when people ask me about my age, i easily answer it. i'm not shy about it. but as i think about it now, that i'll be 28 soon, it's like i'm embarrassed to say that i'm 28. it's not because i'm old. it's just that, it feels like i have not grown up. it's like i am more matured before. i am better before. it's like as i grown old, i grow down (okay, i don't know the opposite of growing up, hehe). i hope you get what i mean. it's like i have not matured. it's like i was better when i was in college than right now. hard to explain.

so there. and now it's already the last week of october. i can't believe it is november on saturday already. october just went as a blur.

I am sure that when the day comes, you will enjoy it.

We all feel like kids. None of us ever feels our age.

When your birthday comes, just think that you're only a day older. That shouldn't make you feel worse, should it? Hehe.

Happy birthday, Tin. Birthdays are always special, even though we don't celebrate it that often. so cheer up. A year of experience added is always priceless. I can't believe you're 28 now. Almost 25 ka palang nung nakilala kita di ba? ambilis ng panahon.

Hello Tin! Happy Birthday! I usually say age is only a number but what matters is how you feel your age should be.

Happy, Happy Birthday Tintin. May you have many more blessed and prosperous Birthdays to come. May the Lord grant you all of your secret wishes in your heart. What you're feeling right now is holy dissatisfaction. You feel you were better before because you're dissatisfied with your life today. It's because you still do not know your purpose in life is. Try to find out what it is, then pursue it. Then and only then can you see the true meaning and purpose of your life. Thanks for the post. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Belated Happy Birthday Tin. Somehow as you grow older, Birthdays seems like any other day. Yeah it's fun to celebrate it at times but quiet celebration are also good as well. It's another year of living for you and madami pang i-e enjoy sa buhay.

Belated happy birthday!
