22 years.. and Counting.

So, yes. It’s the 23rd of June and it’s my birthday today.
Nothing was planned, but it seemed like everything went out of control starting when I woke up this morning. I was granted a leave even though I’m still on probation on work but damn, I wasn’t able to enjoy my day off. Misfortunes overwhelmed me and the indifference and harshness of the freaking weather have gotten me almost insane.
I lost hope on this supposedly special day that I started blaming everything around me – even my parents – for trying to make this day extra ordinary. I was caught in the rain, I was forced to walk on flood, I was made to believe that there would be miracles today. But yeah, there was none.
But as the day ends, I bumped into a realization that being able to wake up this morning is indeed enough to be thankful. Although everything went out of control, it just proves that I am still alive and capable of feeling emotions.
Honestly, I blame Smart Bro, my former service provider, for ruining my day. I spent the day watching Death Note movies and hopelessly waiting for my internet connection to come so I got fed up and I ran out of patience. Thank God that Sun Broadband saved me.
Then I logged on.
And my life became complete.
It’s not the internet addiction which completed me, actually. It’s the fact that my day would not be complete without the birthday greetings I know I’ll receive from friends. I am such a hypocrite if I will say that I am contented with my family, because though they have greeted me already, I know I need to see others’ too.
Then when I opened Facebook, I realized that I am really lucky. I was greeted by friends, and a dream came true. (MY FRIEND GREETED ME, AND I THOUGHT SHE WAS MAD!)
Now, I offer a little prayer to God thanking Him for this day. I knew I was wrong to completely turn my back on appreciating this event and was so mistaken to really blame people for my own misfortunes.
I can never say enough. My mind’s so incoherent.
Just thank you… Thank you.
