Allah Blessed me with

Yet another year! It's my birthday. You know you're getting old when you stop looking forward to your birthdays.
. Every night, before going to bed I have to go in the kitchen, open the fridge and get something to drink. So, last night I was really surprised to find a gift bag in the fridge of any places with my gifts in it. When I asked hubby about it, he ran away, so I knew he put it there for me to find it. The one I liked is the Versace perfume Bright Crystal. It has a sweet floral scent with fruity, musky accents. I also like that the bottle is pretty! It is classically shaped with a glimmering knob top that feels like a big jewel. Who puts perfumes in a fridge? But that was sweet.Also, we both took the day off so we can spend some time together on my birthday.
Now, I am taking time to reflect on my past, present and future. Things I want to achieve, things I thought I'd accomplished by now. To me, new year's is not the mark, but my birthday is. It is a time for thought, a time where I reassess my goals and question my choices. If I die today, what do I have to show for it? Who would notice? My parents would,my husband, my friends... but besides that, the world will still go around. Nothing will change, I am just a dot in humanity between so many dots. When they will tell the story of humanity centuries from now, noone will remember my existence. I will just be one of the many human beings who walked on this earth trying to survive.I want to thank God for giving me a good life,I count my blessings alhamdulilah, my parents for bringing me in this world and instilling in me the ethical, religious and social values that I have. I also thank my friends, and all the people I've met through my life who have inspired me one way or another, directly or indirectly. Thanks for being part of my life story!

I like that you say: "Things I want to achieve, things I thought I'd accomplished by now". There are so many things I thought I would have accomplished "by now".
As I get older, I realize that life is less about regrets than it is about the anticipation of what lies ahead... I wish you a VERY happy birthday, and a yew full of anticipation!
