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.
