Do you know anyone having two legitimate birthdays? Isn’t it a strange thing to have two birthdays? Boggles your mind huh! Well, Sahil happened to know two such people.
One was his sweetheart Natasha Singh. At birth, she hardly weighed five hundred grams and doctors told she won’t survive. Thanks to her granny, for taking up the challenge to keep her alive and healthy. Growing up she knew her birthday was on 6th September 1992 and it was not until she reached Xth standard, when she saw her actual birth certificate hidden in one old rusty trunk. There it was printed on bold letters June 5, 1991. In a blink she was a year older.
The other one was his close friend Sneha Panth. While searching the original documents for admission in B.Tech she stumbled upon her birth certificate on which was written December 15, 1995. Her parents had changed her birthday to 25th December 1996 for admission purpose in kindergarten and never mentioned to her. One moment you are 18 years and Bam! The next one makes you 19.
I or anyone who never had this kind of realization in life will never know what a person goes through in such a moment. Is it tears of joy, insane laughter, sigh, anger or your whole life just seems to be a joke?
Anything can happen anytime in Life 🙂
Three simple philosophies which have always helped me march further in life.
- Everything in life happens for a damn good reason, only if you believe. (Sahil stole it from me)
- What goes around comes around. In simple words, what you do to others is going to happen with you sooner or later. So simply, be good, do good.
- If something is bothering you right now, then take a pause and think – 10 years down the lane will you remember this particular incident or phase of your life?
If the answer is NO, then why care about something which does not bother you in long term.
If the answer is YES, then will you cry or laugh about it?
If you will cry then cry it all out now so that you don’t have to cry 10 years later.
If you are going to laugh at you stupidity 10 years later then why cry now.
In my experience, the answer is NO most of the time.
Happy Living ♥ Stay Blessed 🙂
Life is one hell of a ride
Situations which make you laugh,
Years later the same can make you cry.
Things which once caught your attention,
Years later you want them no more.
People whom you tell all your secrets,
Years later they don’t even know your address.
Brands which you cannot afford,
Years later those are the once you own.
Be it little, Be it small.
Life changes, for all.
Don’t resist change,
Embrace the change in life,
Life is one hell of a ride.
