Today is my birthday and I am supposed to be happy. But I seem not.
Notifications from numerous phone calls, text messages, tweets, wall posts and photo tags kept on waking me up this morning but I still managed to stick on my plan to oversleep. I did not want to get up early because I was afraid that nobody was gonna remember it is, you know, my birthday.
After getting tired of lying down on my bed, I got back to all those social networking apps on my phone.
Jesselle Marianne Santos is one of my college friends who is like a shoulder to lean on. Though we do not go out very often, I know that in our hearts, we always remember each other. After reading that tweet days ago, I wanted to reply quickly and tell her that, yes, she was the first one to greet me. But, I thought that I would just save it on the exact day, that is, today.
This one is unexpected. Or maybe, I am just not used to it, to being vocal in expressing our feelings to a family member. I mean, it is given that you love your family. No words needed. Just affection. But anyway, I appreciated it a lot.
My greatest regret in life as of today is not being able to greet Daryl on his birthday. I know that he was wondering why because he asked me so. That time, I told him that the battery of my phone was malfunctioning but the total truth is that I did not know what to say. I had been thinking how to express my gratitude towards him but at the end of the day, I failed to do any of my plans. So today, I quite thought that he would do the same thing to take revenge on me. But, he chose to be thoughtful and I am grateful.
Lesson for Life: Do not express to impress. Always remember that thoughts from your heart will be the best you can offer.
All day long, I locked myself in my room and it was silly. My siblings called me many times to join them during dinner but I did not show up. It is just that I was afraid that there would be nothing special like what I had during lunch so I preferred to starve myself. But to my dismay,…
I was so stupid! Because of me being wretched irrationally, I unintentionally ruined their surprise. This is the main reason why I became unhappy on my birthday.
I know that I am good in appreciating everybody’s deeds but there are times like this when I could not even say, Thank you. It is just that I think that this phrase is not enough to express how grateful I am. And, it gives me more sadness not being able to tell everyone how I feel.
Lesson for Life: Do not expect too much on yourself. Being simple is lovable.
