Letter to myself

Dear me,

You know how people tend to feel down whenever their birthday approaches, well I know you feel the same. Even though you have always felt young both physically and at heart, somehow life has a way of rubbing it in when you try your darnest best to deny it. For instance, when you wake up in the mornings and you feel some ache in your joints. I also know you feel old when you visit your OB-GYN's clinic and you are the oldest one there. Not to mention, the only one without a 'big belly'.

Well yes so you turn 43, today. I suggest you embrace it with your head held high and a smile in your heart. It is best to just enjoy life and quit torturing yourself with unnecessary stress and worries which keep you up at nights.

You are already blessed with supportive parents, a generous sister and a loving husband. Just count your blessings and be grateful for them. You are already experiencing a life far beyond your wildest expectations. So cherish it and learn to accept that certain things are meant to be, whether you like it or not.

Happy birthday. Enjoy your day. Go have that blueberry cheese cake you have been craving for days now. You deserve it more than you think you do!
