About my birthday this year

Birthdays have always been special to me since I was a kid. Every year no matter in which city I am, birthdays have always been full of festivities and celebrations.

Last year this time, in Sept 2021; however, I was in a gloomy, zombie state, as if life had been sucked out of me. I was in no mood to celebrate and had told so to my friends. Still they took effort in every possible way to make me feel that I am special. My pune friends and relatives sent cake and sweets to Ahmedabad, my college friends got me flowers and took me to a nice chai cafe, and my syndi organised a small party for me. I was sulking about my life and had started doubting myself but all these people tried their level best to make me feel good about myself.

Eventually I came out of that trench in which I only had pushed myself. But when I look back I realise that had I not been bestowed with so much care and affection during those sensitive days, I probably would have been in a worse condition. Whatever bad stuff happened last year was negated by all the goodness of people around me and the love I got from them.

Today after a year, I had a full blast on my birthday and I realised how fortunate I am to have these wonderful people who stood by me when I was going through a rough trip.

I always say that my people are my biggest strength and today my heart is full of gratitude because of all these amazing people in my life.

And I would like to thank them for making special not just my birthday but my entire life.


  1. Lovely! Go from strength to strength!

  2. Gauri, thanks for sharing the link to your blog. Its good to know you've overcome those self created barriers .. I mean being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional...

  3. Gauri, such an honest writeup.. I can't agree more to you! surrounding ourself with positive vibes negates everything that actually doesn't matters to us! May you have many more birthdays and other days filled with love and joy of people who matters most! Good Luck with your blogging... I will keep following your blog! ~ Shivani
