Jasmin Day just passed , I turned 29 on September 29th according to the Internet this is my Golden Year. My Birthday is very special to me and since 18 I have held it has a major priority ,every September I always start counting down right after my mother's birthday on the 7th because those were the rules I grew up with. But I'm not going to lie celebrating your birthday as an adult is hard.
As you grow older your friendship circle may change or grow smaller, at least mine did, I'm now surrounded by friends that I don't get to see on the regular basis. Which causes me to stress out on the days leading up to the big Day ,my Birthday, will anyone call, show up, will they be there on time ,should you expect a cake ,should you buy your own cake it's enough to add wrinkles to your beautiful forehead.
This year I decided to celebrate my birthday doing what I love stand up comedy at Crack em up Thursdays, a weekly Thursday night comedy show at the World Famous Comedy Store. I thought it would ease my anxiety about people showing up because it's a comedy show people should be there anyway right ugggggh not really. I spent a good amount of the day protion of my birthday stressing over which of comedian friends would come and support or which of my non comedian friends would come and support and I wasted a good portion of my day.
You see we/ I sometimes correlate love with quantities of people instead of the quality of people. I didn't take time to realize that those who truly cared and wanted to celebrate with me would and that it didn't matter if it was 1 or a million. You can't focus on the people who don't show up for you because you will miss all the beautiful souls right in front of you.
See I need to start realizing that those who love you can't stay away from you and there is no need to worry about those who don't. Jasmin is not everyone's cup of tea but last Thursday showed me a lot more people care than I thought and I'm blessed to be able to celebrate another year period. Needless to say once I squeezed into my birthday dress had a drink and some MJ I ended up having an amazing time killed my set got sang Happy Birthday by a room full of people some of which I knew and loved oh and I looked amazing.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME IT'S MY GOLDEN YEAR THE YEAR OF ME EXPECT SOME GREAT THINGS
AYYYYYYYYYE TURN UP LIBRA SEASON!!!!
UNTIL NEXT TIME
