Quarter and One of Existence: My Unusual Way of Celebrating My Birthday , Hint: It Entails Fears, Dirts, and Darkness
Birthdays are special days for most of us. Some of us may celebrate an additional year of existence by having a get-together party with loved ones; others may just treat or spoil themselves with sweet things of indulgences. I usually celebrate my birthday in a simple way with family and friends and sometimes I buy stuff as a memorabilia of gratitude for another year has been given to me to live my life again in this complex yet wonderful world.
One lonely day I was wandering under the vast cerulean skies with the effulgent sun giving me an unusual radiance. With that I knew that this day would be extraordinary.

Chanting this melody and harmonizing positive vibes, we would rather be called hippie than boring. We know life is unexciting without a little risk. We are the people of the “outside”.
It’s getting late.
We’ve got to leave. We’ve got to leave….
Long before, I wasn’t awakened by this magic. I dreamt of going outdoors and wandering to places I have never been, but did not give any serious thought about it. It remained a dream. Eventually I had this scary feeling, the fear of the unknown. I harbored unsettled doubts and I let negative thoughts dominate my being. That’s why I was stuck and remained stagnant and my world just revolved around me.Read More »
She was beckoned to a place away from the life she has been living. She knew what her soul has been craving for and now she was free from any inhibitions, free from the maddening crowd and released from the trapped life she secretly hates.
