Today is 11 October, my birthday. Happy birthday to me I am now 21. Usually I do not celebrate my birthday. I would always keep it in my heart and never expose that today is my birthday.
Today my friends celebrated my birthday very nicely with sweet, yummy, lovely birthday cake. Lots of bumps and full on masti. When they wish me I do feel happy or persuade to be happy but some thinking always knocks me in my heart. I try to think why is birthday treated as a happy day? Maybe we know our life is very short and birthday means we lost a year from our life and we want to forget it by celebrating birthday or we want to live our life with full of joy and birthday gives us a special day or we can say that we have grown 1 year more and this is the reason to celebrate a birthday. I know there maybe a lot of answers.
In the whole year, I just forget that I have already passed many time in my life but birthday reminds me that. Then I start to calculate what I have done so far and what I should do within the remaining time. I know this calculation is useless but I can’t control myself to release from thinking. My birthday becomes meaningless when I think about the orphan boy in the street; my birthday wish kills me when I see a hungry street boy is crying for food. Yes, my birthday will become a perfectly tensionless celebrating birthday, when these problems will be no longer and that day will come very soon then I’ll celebrate my Birthday with full of Happiness. It doesn’t mean that I am not happy today I am happy but not completely because something is missing.
Missing parents and some special friends during birthday celebration.
The most inspiring lines I have ever heard, “There are two great days in a human’s life- one is when he/she is born and second is the day he/she proves why he/she is born.

One day two children were born in the same local hospital. Both of them received excellent care. They went to the same school and, unlike many of their generation, lived their whole life in the same area.
Both had parents who read to them, checked on their homework, and came to their afterschool activities. They both had afterschool jobs in high school and both attended the same well regarded state college. Graduation came four years later and then entrance into the job world.
If you compared their transcripts and test scores side by side, these two individuals would appear remarkably the same.
Yet, ten years later they came to their high school reunion, one was on the fast track to upper management and making $200,000 a year minimum. There other had two lateral job changes with little change in salary or responsibilities.
Why would these two similar people be in such different places in their lives?
If you had been a fly on the wall in their growing up years, you would have seen and heard the difference.
One of them grew up with the belief that anything could be accomplished. A problem was just a temporary impediment, a puzzle to be solved. And that one knew the solution would be found.
The other grew up with the belief that life was a constant struggle that would prevent anyone from achieving their goals.
In short, one believed that for every problem, there was a solution. The other believed that problems kept you from what you wanted to accomplish.
These two very different beliefs about difficulties in life, determined what would happen when there were bumps and barriers in the road.
The belief that there is always a solution allowed the subconscious mind to search for solutions. There were only temporary set-backs. You can almost see an SUV commercial with the vehicle finding a way around obstructions or barreling through rough terrain.
When programmed with "Problems keep you from what you want," there is no searching for solutions. Hopes and dreams come to a halt.
Your thoughts and self-talk are signs of what you believe. If you continually cheer yourself on, you believe you will find a solution. If you tear yourself apart, you believe obstacles become immovable forces.
If you are one of the folks who feel others have all the luck, it is time to look at your beliefs about yourself, others and the problems that face you. When you believe that a solution is present, you just have to find it, your inner resources open up to find that solution.
“If you wish others to believe in you, you must first convince them that you believe in them”
