Countdown .. #100BlogDays #day2

It started around the time I started earning and hence could plan gifts for myself. I have always made a big deal of my birthday as in buying something special or expensive. I can actually list the things i bought in last 7 years for my birthday.  

I can not explain the feeling – its not expectation from friends or family even when I have never had a birthday that was not overwhelmingly love filled . It is neither an obsession for materialistic things. The closest I have come for an explaination is that I value the fact that I am responsible for creating my own happy moments before anyone else does it. No one owes me that. I earned that privilege as I gathered some amazingly kind people around me. But first , i should be willing to pamper myself with love.

I am far away from transitioning the same understanding to some of my flaws and relationships that I hammer due to my fears of losing peole. I still do not value and cherish myself the way I am , this version of me that is sum total of all my past decisions and dreams. And that I suppose is what I should and would be doing this year. This year for my birthday I will be writing , reading more , taking my health seriously and become a better person with a positive outlook. 

Hope you all have figured out about yourself and your goals too !  Let me kNow if I can lend a helping hand to those .. 

Oh , btw its 20 days to my birthday !! 💐 πŸ˜€

It's not the dramas or the stories, but actually the people touched by them who taught me how to appreciate these stories, the different medium of expressions, and how to believeΒ that even fictional characters can give hope and smile to so many people around the world. A reader first and obsessive reviewer of things I love, I write when I am deeply touched by a story or a moment. You can find most of my ideas and thoughts first expressed on Twitter - @i_read_write

  1. I like your idea of 100 days of blogging. Sometimes it is in the writing that we find the answers. I, too, have not had the confidence in myself that I need to believe what I do is important. The fear of losing others has been there and to let go is something I try to do every day. I do not love any of my family less but need to know they will be there for me. I enjoy your writing and look forward to seeing more of it in the days to come. πŸ™‚ The glass half full and not half empty is difficult to see for some. You are young and I know the answers will come for you.

  2. I better make a note of that now πŸ™‚ ..
    The best birthday I ever had was Nov. 2012.. for sure … hopefully one day i will have one like that some day toooo ..

    and yes one need to love themselves first … you got to be lovable to be loved and as I have said a million times lucky are the ones who get loved ….

  3. I’ve never bought myself anything on my birthday usually. πŸ™‚ Maybe once, a couple of years back, when I bought a Titan watch, but nothing else. This year, I bought books and a phone. I love that I’ve to create my happiness. But I don’t need a lot to make me happy. Thankfully.

    PS: I know when your birthday is πŸ˜› even if I forget, you usually remind me. Not that I forget, of course.

  4. With this project – you need not celebrate a single day as your Birthday. With every new post, a new YOU will be born. Everyday is a birthday. So, let’s celebrate !
