Happy Birthday to Me! Few years back, my day would filled with a lots of birthday wishes, presents & birthday cards...
Things were different now..
Let say I expect these:
1) My friend SHOULD return favors
2) Other people SHOULD appreciate me
3) my HUSBAND SHOULD buy me Jewellery
These expectation may sound reasonable..But often, these things won't happen! So I end up frustrated and dissapointed..
There's a better strategy. I make fewer demand Instead, have preferences!
A: A birhday cake, Birthday card, flower & Jewell
B: A whole body massage
For things that are beyond my expectation, I tell myself "I would prefer "A" ,,But if I get "B", It's Okay too!"
In this way, I have more piece of mind...I prefer my husband would buy me a birthday cake with presents, but when he's not, it doesn't ruin my day.. I prefer sunshine, but Rain is Okay! So I get a body massage with a wholehearted birthday wishes from my husband at the end of the day:) After all kalau beli cake it is only both of us gonna finish it..
I woke up everyday chooses to be happy. What can possibly hurt me now? What can worry me now? Life is like a movie-its not the length but the quality that matters. I think there is no secret to happiness. I just choose it.
Another year to step forward. I have my luvly husband and an adorable daughter with me. Thats matter!
Happy 26th Birthday to me:)
