Each year, I say I will bake my own birthday cake. I mean, is there any better opportunity to customize a cake absolutely the way you want it? From the design, flavor, ingredients to every other detail !
Joking aside - and this might make you laugh - I honestly might enjoy more a juicy burger or a big bowl of popcorn for my birthday😂
Truth is, my birthday is not an important day for me. Well, it used to. I still remember my 18th b-day. It was a special one. I was so excited to move to the new phase of being an adult, get my driving license... my “freedom” 🤣
Oh how little did I know. 10 years later, I realized that it’s not easy being an adult. I realized that life (the serious part) actually begins when you become that adult. Responsibilities change and increase. The tiny little teenage self starts to face “real” life problems. You encounter all kind of difficulties, sorrows and pains and learn to how fight them.
You become more mature. This is not related to the number of years you accumulate year after year!
Age is just number. Life is what makes you older ! Or should I say wiser !
Personally, I don’t believe that there is such a thing like old and young. It is all in our heads and spirits. You may be 60 years old but living and live like a 30 year old or vice versa. The choice is yours !
Excuse me for drifting away in thoughts and let me present this pie to you: (my) Banoffee Pie !
