Happy Birthday to Myself

Today is my birthday. Quite unusually, I slept almost 7 hours straight last night. I tell myself this is a sign that I should be at ease with my age. At this point in my life, I already know for sure that nobody can win the battle against aging. I learned if I cannot fight with it, I better try to be a friend of it, to get along with it.

People like to reflect on their birthday, especially when they get older. For me, all the things happened in the past are heavy burden, no matter they are my pleasure or my disappointments. I want to let them go, and leave them where they were, as they were. I still have a long journey to go, why should I carry them with me?

Birthday is the day to celebrate life. It’s a day to be affirmative to keep going. Time will reward to those who never stop. Happy birthday to dear myself.
