Happy Birthday… to me…

Yes, it’s my day today. Every year, I feel a bit a older but not that much wiser. This year, though? Much wiser, in reflection.

uh… just read your blog…

you don’t have any sharp objects around, do ya?

I have been dreading this day all year long. Last year I just wanted to have My Day and though others tried really hard to make up for it, I really didn’t get it. I even tried to have a Fake Birthday the following weekend, to no avail. Really, it reminded me of several other let downs in my life that occur around March. I wanted to scream from the top of my lungs how hard this time of year really is, but didn’t. Because I spoke it and it went unheard. I guess it was a hard time for someone else too.

I think I really wanted to see what would happen on this birthday. A let down? A day to remember? A good day? A bad day? Some sort of redemption? Who knows.

But the day is here and I am done holding my breath. Here I am exhaling and letting it go and realizing that I will no longer depend on someone else for my happiness on my birthday. A birthday is supposed to be a good day, right? A milestone. And Lord knows, I am a milestone person.

So, sorry for the post yesterday folks. Birthdays are a day of birth and rebirth. I am feeling positive today. Why?

So far today:

  • My friend Ike has come online and called me an Old Fart (which is hilarious since I have a complex about farts and I’m only two years older than him)
  • I’ve received 5 e-cards (nods to Doug and Roshan and three, yes three nods to my Mum;)
  • Loser wrote me a song entitled Happy Birthday To You.
  • Comments and well wishes from Amanda and Angella, my Next Mountain Range Over Neighbours.
  • *A wonderful book and gift of bath stuff came in the mail today, from my Tiko. I find this funny because she’s never been one to remember birthdays. But… she’s a Mum now, so… I’m just saying. 😉
  • *Pizza, cake and a movie with my family. Awesome, awesome and awesome again.
  • *Some more emails, chats and well wishes from Spark, Chrispy, Meg and Beach Mama as well as a phone call from one of my Aunts this evening.

* Updated. Thanks everyone!
