Write it on your heart...

I did had a fabulous birthday. I thought this would be another year full of jitters but I was wrong. I was at work when 12:00 am strikes. The lights went off and everyone sang the never ending birthday song with one of my friends holding the cupcakes with candles burning and bursting like fireworks. They're super awesome like that.

The surprise didn't end there. One of my friends asked if I was up for an adventure. I was of course very delighted. She said it's a surprise and told me it might take a long drive before we reach the place and we may head home at night. Sad to say we didn't pushed through with that because my  family went here for my birthday. I only have the morning to spare because I want to head to my apartment asap so I could spend time with them because they will also leave soon.

We canceled the said adventure and they asked me to accompany them to run some errands instead. We walked round and round then they told me they're hungry. I persuaded them to eat at McDonald's but they declined the offer. They insist that we wait for the commercial complex to open because they needed to buy some things. So what else can I do but oblige to their wishes. 

To cut the long story short, never to mention they let me wait under a tree with the blazing heat of the sun, Red Ribbon opened and it turned out it was another surprise lunch for my birthday. They had cookies and cream with oreo cake for me with candles (again). It was a glorious day with chit chat among close friends. They really made my day special. 

We went home afterwards and there's my family, waiting for me. We had a simple celebration, spend the weekend with me. When they left, I was full of good spirit that I managed to turn my apartment up and down and cleaned every space. I found out I have pieces of the kraft posters I haven't put to place yet, so that was indeed a perfect day to do so. Now my wall is decorated with lovely pieces from Papemelroti, my favorite shop in the mall full of crafts, recycled papers and all things with antique look and awesome. 

That's all for now, I will leave you with the poem inscribed at one of the kraft posters by Ralphy Waldo Emerson. A prefect  piece to brighten up each day. 


Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day,
and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt, crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, 
tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely,
with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays...
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

And thank you very much for all the greetings. It was very much appreciated.

  3. Awww. Belated Happy Birthday,dear Sey! :) I'm glad you had fun on your birthday. Ang swerto mo to have found such thoughtful and loving friends. As we grow up, unti unting nawawala ang excitement natin sa birthdays, parang nagiging ordinary day na lang nga minsan. Buti na lang you have sweet friends and a loving family who shows you how happy they are that you were born. :)
