Twenty Six

The truth is, one day you wake up and realize your life is on autopilot. And it has been so for a long time. It seems like somewhere in your sleep you left behind that restless disobedience and decided it was time to let some clichéd world-weariness set in. What was nothing more than a nuisance to your rational mind before has now become you and you seem to wear the new skin pretty comfortably. What happened to your claws? You have always been a non-conformist, but for some unfathomable reasons, you are more willing to thwart your principles now. Hey I’m not saying this is a bad thing. But a little bit of spikes here and there would have been nice. Are you still afraid of the same things you were afraid of 5 years ago? Or even last year? Do you still believe in the same things you believed in? Or are you too jaded to care about silver linings anymore? When was the last time you cry? Sometimes I worry that you are too smart for your own good. Do you really think you have the world and its people figured out? You don’t seem too sure sometimes. You have some pretty awesome friends ya know, so do yourself a favor and make some effort to keep them. Maybe someday you will learn that vulnerability is just human. Baring your flaws can be endearing and to fret over spilled milk is stupid. You should learn to please yourself before you please everyone, because trust me, it is harder. Have you satisfied your wanderlust? You are too young to stop searching. Stay curious, stay foolish. I like that about you.  And for christ’s sake, change your toothbrush at least once a month. By the way, what’s up with the snoopy pyjamas you’re wearing right now? It looks silly on you. But y’know, please yourself.

Knowing your warped sense of humour, I think you will like this:


Happy birthday. :)
