32 and counting, Happy birthday me




Today I celebrated my 32nd birthday, turning the page on a chapter and starting a new one, Starting my 33. 32 huh, I thought it would be scary, but actually, it wasn’t. After all, after crossing the 30’s milestone those extra digits don’t make such a difference. “Age is just a number” is a phrase I lived my whole life by. When I was young I used to have a lot of older friends who I fitted with perfectly, never was my age an issue for any of them. And now I would watch a cartoon or run in the rain like children and still, it doesn’t get affected by my age. Age is just a number because it doesn’t control you grow old or not. You may be in your 20’s and all you do is sit on your couch watching TV, and you might be in your 80’s and still have a walk in the club and have dinner out with friends. What actually control if we grow old or no is no else than ourselves. I remember when I turned 30 I kept saying am not 30 years old, I am 25 years old + 5 experience. Many didn't understand me back then, but I meant it, that I decided at the age 25 not to grow old. Numbers hold a lot of meanings, but the most important and famous number is 11 since in many cultures the number 11 signs for angels and spiritual portals. Here I am in my last year of the 3rd 11 patch of years, the last year in the 3rd portal. So let me look back on My major events in that 3rd 11 (from 22 - 33). In the beginning of that phase, in the 1st year, I got engaged. A new step which would have been scary for many, but it wasn’t for me. Within those years I graduated, got married, been blessed with 2 amazing kids, got a new home, new car, another new car, started my own business, and just this year been a co-author in a short stories book, and there is still another year left, which I believe is a key year to come. I believe I never regretted anything ever, never regretted missing an opportunity, not buying something, buying something. Never regretted going somewhere, doing something or getting to know someone. In my 32 years, I came across many k8nds of people, I have been blessed with the best friends, nd i came across the assholes as well. But I am proud of who I became, and of those people around me who always push me to the better. I came across few secrets of life that everyone knows but only a few understand, and fewer live by them. I figured out that because of social media we lost a lot of human touch, whatever is not on your wall is not important for me to know. So I created a HELALY manual for begginers, top 32 things... Top 32 life facts and quotes:
