…my blessings and white hair!
Yes, its my birthday today. Its that day of the year again. Last year, when I turned 27, I declared that it is the best age of my life. I was recently married, on the verge of becoming a dad, guns blazing at work etc etc. But come to think of it, not much has changed since last year so why can’t this be my best age? I am a dad now and its still not too long ago that I got married. Though work is a touch disappointing from last year. But I guess being a dad covers up for all that has not worked out over the last 1 year.
A few days back I told my wife that I need to make a list of things I want to do before I’m 30. Not sure if thats such a good idea knowing my habit of procrastination and, ofcourse, laziness. I may never come around to even make that list. My wife replied, why don’t you just go ahead and start doing all those things. Why depend on a list? I resisted the idea then but I think thats exactly what I am gonna do. No more lists for me. The wish list I made on my 15th birthday is still not complete so what are the odds that I will get to the bottom of this one?!?
There are a few things I want to do, places to visit and new stuff to learn (not to forget: new gadgets to own!) I think I’ll just take it up as and when I feel like it. What I really need to change is my health. Not been keeping too well lately. So need to get on to a more healthy lifestyle. Change my diet plan, start some workouts and physical activities.
As for today, no big plans actually. I’m off from work today and for the rest of this week not recover completely from my illness. Will spend the day with my wife and kiddo. Maybe step out for dinner. Grab a movie or something. I honestly think that once you become a parent, birthday celebrations are not for you anymore. Ofcourse a little something here and there is fine but cake, candles, gifts, decorations, parties, the works, are for our kids now.
So thank you in advance for all the wishes and good words. Its just morning and I’ve received so many bday wishes already. Thanks again and for those who haven’t wished yet, what are ya waiting for? 🙂
