So sometime in the last month I turned the page of my life to a new blank chapter of another year.
I don’t know if it’s aging thing or just me going through a weird phase in my life right now, but I prefer to keep a low profile, hide under a blanket, and let the occasion pass by cloaked in obscurity.
Hubby of course insisted on celebrating the occasion and made reservations for a lovely breakfast brunch as a family at a top notch restaurant right by the Swan River. It was the perfect way to spend my birthday, with the people I love most in the world.
I often feel a bit melancholy at this time of the year…. I’m not sure whether it’s my birthday, or an end-of-the-year-is-coming thing… whatever it is, these days I often find myself retreating to huddle under a blankie with a hot mug of tea, listening to melancholic tunes on my playlist and fall into deep, heavy thoughts.
So to turn things around, I thought I’d share a few quotes which helped to lift my mood a little…
|Birthdays are good for your health. Studies have shown|
that people who have more birthdays live the longest.
|Happy Birthday. May your Facebook wall be filled|
with messages from people you never talk to.
|If sometime forgets your birthday, take it as a compliment.|
You must have not aged enough to be noticed.
|My favourite age is NOW.|
(Kirsten Dunst on getting older)
|Keep calm and be crazy, laugh, love and live it up|
Because this is the oldest you’ve been
And the youngest you’ll ever be again.
|Age is of no importance unless you are a cheese.|
|We turn not older with years but newer every day.|
