I remember growing up to love the months March and September. March being the recognition/graduation month, my parents always gift me something as a reward for getting medals. And September, obviously because it is my birthmonth. I carried that hype over the years and there’s always an obligatory feeling to get something special whenever it is my birthday.
This year, it felt a little different. Makeup and other material things I want will always be there, waiting for me to buy them all-year round. Fancy celebrations doesn’t quiet hit me as well. I know it’s impossible at this moment, but I wish I can create my own makeup brand/line like Kylie Jenner and donate all the proceeds to the people who need them the most.
As a mother myself, it hit me so bad to see the terrorist victims all over the world who lose their family and homes just like that. I wish I can bring all that back for them and remove the pain and trauma in their hearts.
There’s a video of Angelina Jolie giving a speech when she won an award. It is a great reminder for us to “Do the Best With This Life, To Be Of Use”.
You can watch it here:
My one true wish for this birthday (to whatever magical entity that will grant this) is for people to wake up and see the value of things that are more important, to help others and to promote love instead of hate.
If you happen to read this, gift me your promise to be kind and to be of use always.
