My birthdays have never been important to me. Formerly, when my biggest circle of friends consisted of my school friends, my birthday fell on school holidays so everybody left town and I didn't have the chance to celebrate it properly. Later, when I became old enough to realize that time isn't something that repeats itself but an ongoing thing, my birthdays became more meaningless to me. And later, birthdays became things that remind me that I'm getting older.
I never felt happy on my previous birthdays. But I woke up feeling different this morning. I've had this weird positive sensation all day long. I feel more alive and stronger and better than yesterday. Let me tell you one thing my friends: Aging is so awesome.
Happy birthday to me. - #me
