“Happy Thankful Birthday”

It’s been more than a year since I posted “Celebrate Life” on this blog. Day changes, time flies. I don’t really understand where life has been taking me to, but I realised one thing : it’s no longer the same “Celebrate Life” i have in mind earlier. Nowadays, almost every conversation i make, turned to be complaint. Full stop.


It might seems to be normal, when we want things to happen in our life. All best things. For ourselves. But sometimes, we consciously forget what we truly need. In pursuit of happiness, we have too much things set as parameter of our happiness; just like a shopping list. When the lists are ticked,  happiness accomplished. Otherwise, it turns to a different story. It just happens. The picture of happiness then comes to a very rigid and complicated shape, as the definition of happiness is set to the highest bar. We then forget the destiny, and end up pursuing things that basically doesn’t impact the quality of life we live. We no longer enjoy every moment, because what overwhelms mind is target, target, target. We forget to savor the joy of new day, the warmth of  sunshine, tranquility in raindrops, or the smell of wet land. And to be honest, i have been away from those kind of joys…

I have been too busy planning life. I have been closing eyes from the joy around me. I have been forgeting the feeling to be free, to chit chat with friends as long as i could, to feel the breeze of air every morning. I have been boasting about what tomorrow may bring forth. I have been too busy lately and excused my self so much.

So this birthday wish is : i wanted to be that person who’s more grateful and thankful. To live simply. To act attitude of gratitude, and cherish every moment of grace.

I have enough. Enough for me, and enough for sharing. Happy Birthday to me 🙂
