21 Love!

Today (yesterday now, but just about) was my 21st birthday. As part of the whole process of growing up, it leaves me unsure. Surprisingly, though- for someone who's not really fond of change- I'm very happy.

A bit of background information would be in order. I flew down to Delhi for my birthday, and had lunch with some of my best friends from school. Dinner was, by common consensus, a family thing, with an old family friend also coming in for a bit. And this got me thinking about life.

Its only when you're surrounded by the people you care about so much- and who care about you so much- as well, that you realise how lucky you are. To merely be alive. To have people who love you so much, and so deeply. It's a humbling feeling, one that leaves me with a lump in my throat. It's very touching to know people care- and that they'll be there for you throughout. This goes for friends in NALSAR as well, but somehow it seems so much more apt putting it here. So thank you. For being there. For having listened to my shit. And for loving me nonetheless. It makes me feel deliciously fuzzy and warm inside.

All in all, its been a wonderful day. A wonderful beginning of what I hope will be a happy year.

And on this note, I go to bed.

Happy Birthday again!

I was thinking something along the same lines for probably different reasons about ten minutes ago while biking home. :-)
