There is something about your birthday that makes you want to either sit down and cry since you’re getting old and haven’t achieved nothing impressing yet or start your birthday celebrations at least a week before your actual birthday and continue celebrating for as long as you can (which basically means – until you still have a liver or at least a half of it that can work and was not consumed by alcohol).
Myself, I get a semi-depression at least a week before and celebrate my birthday as long as I can. That basically means that I am still celebrating (trying) and my depression is over (undoubtedly yes but sometimes no). This year’s annual semi-depression week wasn’t nearly as rough as the previous one. (Thank me!) I used my time to think about changes.
A lot of things have changed during last year. And, in general, I believe those changes are for good and were really needed.
I finally feel like I am on the right track and waking up everyday is suddenly easier than before.
Of course, there are still some things that I am missing. It’s not like I am the happiest person living. I still have my bad hair days, or any other bad-something days. It happens all the time! But, comparing to last year, I have a lot more things to be grateful for.
My Annual Semi-Depression Week was shorter this year. I used this time to set goals and think about values. Of course, I was still listening to girly songs, watching Bridget Jones’ Diary and Intouchables, still wanting to spend all my days covered by animal-pinted blanket with a company of a subtle candle light in my room and a freshy smell of berry and jasmine. Oh, I desperetely wanted to do that. Wanted but couldn’t.
On my birthday, reading and listening to words of kindness made me realise how easily we can influence and improve one another’s lives. I am grateful for all the wishes, all the inside jokes, every Happy Birthday, every grattis på födelsedagen, every Sto lat that I got that day. They made me feel happy, apprechiated and important. It was a great start of yet another year of rocking it Anna’s style.
On that occasion, I want to thank you for being here, watching my irregular steps on blogging adventure!
Wish you all the best!
