My Birthday always meant for me the end of Summer. And mainly this day was always rainy and cold, I took my black coat, put on boots and spent this day with family in a restaurant, after which we came home, drank champagne and then I went to sleep. This is how I was celebrating my day last years.
But this year was very special for me, I had so many new emotions and occasions that have never happened to me before. That’s why the end of my year I decided to celebrate in a different way: of course I still had a family time, but firstly we started the day in the museum, after had a very delicious lunch in the restaurant and now I am waiting for my friends with whom I will end the day in a bar with a nice portion of Cosmopolitan or two.
As I said, my Birthday always meant for me the end of Summer. But this year my Summer had already started in May and ended – in the beginning of August. Because seasons for me not the months but the atmosphere, people and emotions that I have. My Summer ended right after a very special period in life came to an end. This period was hard, but undoubtedly happy, and it doesn’t matter that in the end everything was ruined. I can truly say that I am glad that I had that time in my life. I am glad that I had you.
Also this year was a discovery for me. I had an opportunity to finally rediscover myself. I finally fell in love with myself, with my body and my mind. I can say that now I know who I am and what I can do. I love all my advantages and disadvantages and I know that my the most dearest people love me for who I am. And that what really makes me happy.
“Learn to accept those things that you can’t change” – my Mom said this thing to me tomorrow. And you know, this was the most important phrase that I have heard this year.
And the last but not the least thing that I have learnt – those people who are really your people won’t go away from you. No matter how long you haven’t seen each other, no matter how many times you argued and said bad things – if you really mean something important to each other you will be together.
And yes, eventually all the dots will connect.
