Its been a long time since I wrote something but life takes turns and we never know what tomorrow will bring. I recently celebrated my 25th birthday, so many people wished and gave their blessings. When people celebrate their birthday, they wish to achieve more than last year, be in good health, develop themselves, or just enjoy the day with their loved ones.
When we are at a certain age, we realize that each year we are closer to death. We feel thankful that we can open our eyes and see the wonderful things around us. I always feel grateful for the people in my life who teach me every little things which are so important in life. Looking back when I was in high school, I always got to share my special day with family and school friends. But this year, i only had wishes and blessings. It feels that every passing year, I lose out friends. The reasons can be many, but only few remain my constant friend.
2020 proved to be great year to me, as I learned and practiced the art of letting go and making space for new things to enter. I lost a lot of things but gained what was valuable. Things were hard after lockdown and every day chores was tough. It took me around 9-10 months to work on myself. And now i am much happier, and mentally stable.
The only thing I wish this year is to see my parents near me. Its been a year since I saw them as they live in the Gulf and there is still restrictions on International flight. Whenever I see my mother through video calls, i realize i am incomplete. That I am still a kid who yearns for her mother. Her face tells that she misses us too and wants to come back here. If only my wishes were fulfilled by a “genie”, I could travel and meet her this very moment. While many of my friends are lucky to be in presence of their parents, they may not know that will become a memory and every moment we spent with our parents, we will cherish it.
I always wish you all remain healthy, happy, and spend good times with your close ones, for you may miss them when they are gone. Be a source of comfort and spread happiness where ever you go. People will always remember you as “happy-go-lucky” person.
