Happy Birthday to ME

So its no 36 for me. I am young, though growing older. Well! We’re all growing older, aren’t we!? It’s not that we can do anything about it. It is a privilege many don’t get, so I guess I got to thank God for making me a year older wiser (I’m not sure of that either) today.
Well, looking back at 35 years, I have memories to be thankful for, the fears & worries, also for the little joys, happiness, and laughs. While the past has given me things to remember, the future has mysteries that I am yet to discover.
I did let go of many chances and missed some important moments. While some friends left me, others I have walked away from – as I move on…
Another year of my life – to do better, to learn more, to live and love to the fullest. I’ll try not to let myself down…44
For you ‘the reader’ thank You for being the part of the beginning of another year in my life. We may have not met, spoken or even have a clue of who the other is.. You still matter.
And for the people who read this and remember me today – Say a prayer for me, that would be the best gift you could ever give.
I am blessed.

Is it still ‘A Happy New Year?’

Okay! So we’re in a new year. People are still wishing each other ‘A Happy New Year’. While all this Happy New Year thing is nice and all, it does get old pretty quickly.. as quickly as the first week of January.

So when do people STOP wishing each other a ‘Happy New Year’? My thinking would be by the 6th of January [the 3 Kings Feast (The Epiphany) – which signals the end of the Christmas season]. While that is all cool..what if someone comes up and wishes you a week after that? I’m gonna say Mid January would be the last I’m entertaining new year wishes… I don’t want to be reminded that its a new year after that.

I’m still receiving Merry Christmas messages from friends…on the 6th of January. 

So, as the Christmas season comes to an end a little under 2 hours from now, I wish everyone a Happy New Year 2018 – for the FINAL time. Have a great one ahead! Cheers!
