If you've been reading my blog for at least a year, by now you should have realised that September is one of my most favorite months of the year. Why is that so? Simply because it's my birth month!
In my birth month, here goes my promises of more amazing and inspirational photos to be blogged (as always) - In fact, that's what i can really offer to all of my photography blog followers. I am also currently in the midst of doing some local photo documentary shoots in which i hope to share some of those shots with all of you soon! :-)
For sharing purposes, here are a few photos that i had taken during some of my recent birthday celebrations with some best buddies - i must say that each was a blastful moment with much great appreciation built up over the long years!
Just a note to my other best buddies of all times (Doraine, KH, Scorpio, AC, MA, JY & JL) whom i had received heartfelt wishes and gifts during my birth month, though i wasn't able to meet up with all of you to have a fun celebration - THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Thank you for being such a great buddy for so many years, thank you for knowing and accepting who i am and being so supportive in whatever i do. Whatever it is and wherever i am, i will forever be grateful for your friendship and support.
I struggled immensely throughout the recent years to pursue work-life-balance and through the struggle, I grew tremendously. I am a different person. People change over time, which we really do, often for the better.
I am a better person today than I was yesterday. But I am far from perfect. I make mistakes and bad decisions and I fail at times. I stumble, fall. I am human after all. My story is unique and yet it is no different than yours, minus the details.
I have loved. I have laughed, grown and contributed. And for that I am grateful.
I have lived my life (so far). And for that I bear no regrets.
Perhaps my future will bring forth a certain kind of levity, a certain kind of serenity, a certain kind of calm.
Or perhaps life isn’t meant to contain these kinds of absolutes. Perhaps one must sit in the valley to see the beauty of the mountaintop, to appreciate his ascent, to live a meaningful life. And perhaps the key is to not live in the valley, but, rather, to be aware of why you are there and prepare for the journey ahead.
Whatever the case may be, I will embrace this life as it is the only life I have. And I will love my life, a beautiful, adventurous and wondrous life, through the good times and the bad.
Here’s a Happy Birthday to ALL who are born in the month of September! May all of you remain young and vibrant with lots of exciting times to look forward to! Have a smashing month and paint the town red, because it's your month! :-)
