I vowed myself this year to do things I have never ever done before. Not dig into reason why , just do it.
My mom made sure I had the best of birthday bashes while growing up. On the other end I can't certainly remember wishing her on any of her birthdays.I celebrated my Mom's birthday this year for the first time. It wasn't even closely comparable to what you could call a "party". We just went out dining, the three of us -me, my mom & my brother. Small cake with "SUPERMOM since 1994"scribbled on it. It was not what I had in mind all along, but again as I mentioned before I prefixed myself this time to my vow. Of course I did not inform her of this (not the surprise element but the sheer shame of putting up such a poor show). 'This is the worst B-Day celebration ever. I hope no one throws me such a bash for any ocassion' - thoughts reverberating in my head while I handle the cake to the waiter. *mom still doesn't know
Tbh I haven't seen such a broad smile on her face since I left for college, which will be 5 years from now. (only fragments of it every time I returned in vacations which used to vanish within days owing to my habits ) Let me rephrase it correctly, I haven't put such a broad smile on her face for a long long time. The glee was radiating out of her entire body. On her Xth(can't mention her age,I guess here is where all ladies draw the line) birthday we threw adulthood out of the window and became kids again , at least for the next few hours. Over the next few days I found her bragging about this event to all her friends, relatives, students, neighbours etc .Oh, how I wish this day came earlier.
This picture is special to me because it signifies a new dawn in the bond with the oldest entity I am attached to since taking the first breath of my life. I look forward to new dawns, greater accolades this year and pressing the RESET button on embarkment of the journey to conquer my fears,however baseless they might be or futile they may seem.
