28 on the 28th

March 28, 2011 marks the day of my 28th year living as a human being (yes, I was trying to be funny there.) I may sound and look calm to you but deep inside, I was panicking. I try to live a fun life but on times like this where there is an occurrence that may sound simple to others but deeply affects the person involved, I tend to be dramatic. This is the time where I evaluate myself and over think on things I have no control.

Last month, I turned a year older and somehow feel not enough. This is not the me I envisioned when I was younger. And I can all blame it to myself for not fulfilling my dreams when I had all the free time. But despite all that drama, I have a loving husband and wonderful daughter who keeps me grounded and prevented me from burying myself into the depths of depression. They reminded me of what is important and it made me appreciate my life more.

On the day of birthday, we celebrated it as a family. We ordered pizza and DK bought me cake. Nothing fancy, no pretensions. Just us family eating our comfort food and enjoying each other’s company. The next day was a day off for me. DK and I went on a date.

Kind of ironic don’t you think? I turned a year older but I embraced my inner child. We went to Enchanted Kingdom and acted like BF/GF. Weird thing with the EK staff, on the ticket booth, the Sales person asked for my student ID. The thought made me giddy! Hahaha!

DK pretending to be scared, me: kunwari pa-cute

Of course, we didn’t forget our Offspring. We bought her gifts from the souvenir shop and she loved it! Can’t wait for Una to be big enough to enjoy the rides in Enchanted Kingdom.

    OMG i actually thought you’re younger, like 23-24.. One year lang tanda ko sa yo but I know what you mean.. medyo panic mode na nga ako eh, kasi ill be turning 29 na nyan.. Now i understand bakit ayaw magbirthday nung mga nasa 30’s na lol. But anyway, i had so many big dreams too na hindi ko nagawa and yet im thankful na rin for what i have become right now. Pero syempre if given a chane to fulfill our dreams why not diba.. you know normal lang yung maisip natin mga gusto nain gawin na di natin nagawa but what what really matters most is we’re happy

      Hihi, mukha bang bata? I think more on isip bata, hahaha!

      I don’t regret my choices especially with the man I married and my makulit na daughter. Hopefully ma-fulfill ko pa rin ang dreams ko in the near future but this time with my family beside me. :)

  5. Hi sis,

    I know exactly how you feel. Hey, I’m 35 but I still feel I haven’t achieved anything in life :). I guess, you and I have something in common: we can say that our kids are our greatest achievement in life.

    Belated happy birthday to you :)

    Happy Belated Birthday! It looks like you had a wonderful time. I think you look about 21! I’ll be 45 next month, don’t worry about getting older, you’re only going to get better. I’m stopping by with the April Blogger’s Exchange, and now I’m a follower. I hope you’ll follow back.

    Happy Birthday Sis! Hey, don’t be too harsh on yourself. We all experience that stage of regrets sometimes, but as you said, they are out of our control. But then, nothing’s too late so you still have the chance to fulfill the you envisioned… just take it easy… one step at a time. goodluck hun! =)
