Today, 31st of October 2021 mark another new beginning in my life; I’m always grateful to my parent for everything they have done and the training of this handsome young man to this point in his life. Not to talk much, I have always have this thought of maybe birthday celebration is important if you aren’t doing so good in life or if you have little achieved, this thought always battle with me, most time, I see some of my friends that are of the same age as me doing well, though the means of their wealth kinda bother me but it’s not something I can ask them of because it shouldn’t be a bother to me, I’m always happy for them and I try not to get carried away by their life style. Sometimes people call it oppression, they will say they feel oppressed by the life style of others, always envy them without knowing how they got their wealth and this will push them into doing anything to get money.
Little advice: when anyone is desperate to get money or to get rich by any means , try to stay far from them, it’s just a friendly advice.
I’m always meant to celebrate my birthday on the 31st of October, but last year seems different because it never cross my mind that it was my birthday, I totally forget, can you imagine that, forgetting your own birthday. Due to the covid-19 outbreak and lockdown, I was away from school for a very time, so I had to get a job, which I got one, a very tedious one at a gas station, I resume at work at 6am and I close by 11pm, it’s a shift job, that is, if you work on a Monday, you won’t on Tuesday, you go home and resume on Wednesday, during the course of this long work hour in between 6am to 11pm, I will have to attendance to customer all day, and we are not allowed to use our mobile phones, this job really made it hard for me to access the internet or do anything that interest me in anyway, the day of my birthday, I was at work and my phone was in the locker, I had lot of messages and missed call, by the time I close from work, I took my phone to see many calls I missed, I was wondering what the occasion was that I had so many call, I went through all the message to discover it was birthday wishes to me, what scare me the most then was that I wasn’t moved by any of the message, I replied with the usual “Thank you, I really appreciate it” and the people that posted my pictures on other social media, I didn’t bother to appreciate it because I was worried of the fact that I feel belittle by life itself, I have done anything to be proud of, I see some of my friends doing better than me and here I am, working at the gas station, sometime I sell fuel to their cars but I didn’t let it get to my head but it was always depressing seeing them, the fact of celebrating birthday just annoyed me.
It was still 11.58pm, I already had calls trying to rip my speaker out of my phone, the calls just kept coming in, I haven’t felt this happy about my birthday before, I have learn to appreciate life the way it comes, anything that put me down, I will get up and push harder, my mistake last year was that I wasn’t grateful a bit to the things I have, I was looking at those things I don’t have and those things I haven’t achieved, looking back now, I noticed I have achieved a great deal of things, during the lockdown time in 2020, many people where in there house unable to feed their family, but within all those crisis, I got a job, I was able to sustain myself without begging, I was with my parent and siblings, it was joyful and peaceful, this year, I feel more grateful.
When celebrating your birthday, you shouldn’t allow anything negative cross your mind, on that day, you aren’t meant to celebrate your achievement, or things you have done, it’s a day to reflect on all the things you have been through and be grateful for where you are now, it a day to celebrate when you are born to this world, it’s not a most you celebrate it in a big way or in a small way, it depend on your capacity, and the way you want to celebrate it, what made me have this thought of writing this article was when I read @King_Gozie article title 23 AND FEELING WORRIED, it a very interesting article that’s worth reading.
