And there goes another year

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 someone forget your birthday, take it as a compliment. You must have not aged enough to be noticed.

My favourite age is NOW.

Love your life :)!

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.
