Crossing the barrier of "quarter of a century"

Aha that title seems to be taken from epic book!! But no no, its my own words and not taken from any historical books. This blog has caught dust after being ignored from so many months.But believe me, I never wanted to do that. Its just, I get a idea for a topic and by the time, I sit to write, I loose all the interest and I end up writing only a title.But its always a special feeling to write over here, something that makes me happy and I have ignored it all along from a long time. And the funniest thing is, every time I publish some thing here, I tell myself, "I am going to write everyday and publish everyday", But It never happens.

I am drifting away from the main topic, crossing the "quarter of a century". It makes me feel special as well as old. Its not easy to accept so many changes and responsibilities and make quick decisions like elders do. I am still very choosy and still not able to make a quick decisions. Even this time, for selection of one cake, I would have taken another 30 minutes if I had being alone! Every year I would happily wait for this day like a kid, but from the past two years, it has lost its glory, I feel silly cutting cake and receiving gifts. It makes me feel that I am growing older and funnily we all are celebrating the day of becoming older. Like every coin has two sides to it, even birthdays have two sides to it, we receive calls and messages from all our dear ones even if they don't have time in the entire one year to talk to us, but they take this day to remind us, that they still remember and care for us.That's the beauty of this day which I love it all the way.

And don't get me wrong, gifts are always nice, even if its only silly card and that silly card has also being replaced by online e-cards.It still makes me special for that one day, cos its one day where every one thinks of you. Now new patterns have developed where in, the guest receives a return gift. Its wonderful way to share your joy. Then there are people who celebrate their birthdays in the old-age house or the orphanage. I think its quite a noble way to share your joy with the ones who are deprived of them. Life has its way of saying, that whatever we give to others, we get it back too. So if we make some one happy today, tomorrow some one will make us happy too. Thats the way our universe works.

And I have missed out many post of my blogger friends in the past few months. Hopefully this time, I will be able to keep in touch with every one. For now I am enjoying eating my delicious cake, you all enjoy watching me eat.

So true!! Very nice article :) Your b'day is one day when you can be in the limelight, the day when you are pampered the most, and the day you realize that you do have a big world of yours, that is caring about you!
