So, I turned eighteen this Thursday. It had been an awesome but an extremely chaotic day. I had been out for more than twelve hours. Needless to say, I woke up the next day at two pm.
On the twenty third of this month, ten minutes before twelve am, I was hyperventilating. The following was my thought process :-
‘Oh my god! It’s my birthday tomorrow! I’m nervous but excited. Who will wish me? Will my best friends call me at midnight? Will my parents throw me a surprise party? What presents will I get? Will I feel any different? Will I feel older all of a sudden?’
As you can read, my thoughts were jumbled. I was thinking WAY too much. Although the day was important, I was thinking constantly about it. And then at the stroke of midnight, I had an epiphany. I said,” Don’t take any day too seriously. It’s just a day. Sure it is important but I shouldn’t expect anything of it. I should just accept anything and everything that comes in my way on this day.”
All of us have days which are extremely important for us. Be it our graduation, wedding day or in my case, my eighteenth birthday. We always want everything to be perfect on THIS particular day. We don’t want anything to go wrong, so we think, and we plan, and then we think some more. This extra thinking puts a lot of stress on us before and on these special days. But we forget the most important lesson, we forget that life is unpredictable. THE special day maybe good or bad. There maybe things that may go right and things that may go wrong. We can control the day only to a certain extent. Therefore, we shouldn’t expect.
So,my readers, don’t put pressure on yourselves to make a day perfect, because it never will be perfectly perfect.
