Ah birthdays. What are they good for? A reminder of the deadly passing of time that you are unable to do anything about – stop, reverse or even slow down! A reminder to party like there’s no tomorrow because you are slowly dying!
Or you can be grateful for another 365 years of live on this planet and give a toast to the previous years that have gone by. The highs & the lows, the good & the bad, the achievements, the failures, the disappointments, the pleasant & no so pleasant surprises and the loves and losses and even the hates! This is a day for reflection and inner search for those few strands of positive things that have made a difference in your life and hopefully, the things that you did that meant something to others.
I won’t lie to you, I hate being reminded of my age. I want to be younger. Damn it I feel younger but maybe I don’t look younger and I certainly cannot act as if I am young! In 3 years it’s the big 4 0! The dreaded farty forty! That’s just around the corner. And what have I done to enjoy four decades of existence? Nothing – not a thing! I have so much more to do, so much much more things to take care of. Damn!
Happy birthday Rosh.
