“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born, and the day we discover why.” – William Barclay
One bright April morning, I wandered into the woods, sat on a massive rock in a clearing, and listened to the chirping birds, the buzzing insects, the whispering trees, and the slithering reptiles as the thicket continued its life unobtrusively, in quiet acceptance of me as a part of its order.
When hours later, I sauntered away from this beautiful abode of life, I realised how wonderfully energised I was and how truly I had grown, inwardly… What a unique way to spend the morning of a birthday!
True, birthdays are special occasions for celebrants, a remembrance of their natal day.
For the positive-minded, age is just mind-over-matter – if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. So, Happy Birthday to you, my charming, talented and witty alter ego – you remind me of me.
To the rest of you who celebrate today, may I wish for you, as I want for myself, a glorious re-beginning, a healthful re-entrance, and a peaceful Nu Year.
Have A Happy Birth Day!
