It was my birthday some days ago, and I am super thankful for another year. I always look forward to birthdays, mine and my loved ones. It allows me reflect on how far I have come and plan the road ahead. I enjoying celebrating life and that is really what birthdays are about. Recently, I have been thinking of how we spend time and energy and things that do not matter.
We chase friendships/relationships that are dead and buried, we seek validation from everyone both online(especially online) and in real life, and it sucks. I have chosen to not be bothered with certain things anymore and instead focus my energy and time and those that truly matter. And it has made me very happy and satisfied with my life and those in it.
Which is why I switched off my birthday notification on my personal Facebook page. That way my birthday stays private and no one gets notified. If you remember, then it means you are special. That way, I don’t have to worry about who wishes me happy birthday and who doesn’t. It felt so good. I also took myself out of a certain Whatsapp group that wasn’t doing anything for me or anyone to be honest. That felt great. I have come to understand what really matters, and that quality always supersedes quantity.
Outfit Post – My Birthday Look
This was my birthday look. I got this red turtleneck dress last year. This is my second time of wearing the dress. I love the way it looks. The bright colour makes me feel a lot happier. I think it is great for the current weather. I have had the black sleeveless waistcoat for a few years now. It always works well as a light outerwear, more for fashion than function. The tights came into my wardrobe last year. I reviewed on Fashion and Style Police. The tights are advertised as magic tights that do not rip, and they are yet to rip. Loving the pair.
My black boots, sunglasses and cross body bag are some of my go-to black accessories. I love them.
