Happy happy birthday! 誕生日おめでとう! (Otanjou-bi omedetou, as they say in Japanese)
We’re supposed to be counting the wisdom, precious memories and good works we’ve accumulated over the years, not worrying about the future or the coming disappointments. Life is never devoid of pressure and adversity. When you feel like wishing they’ll all go away, imagine how drab life would be then. Isn’t victory sweeter when you’ve experienced defeat?
May God fulfill the desires of your heart and lead you to where he intends you to be.
I bet people will have a hard time hating you become you’re one of the most amiable and humble persons I’ve ever met. Mukhang mahaba-haba pa ang tatahakin natin. But let’s both look out for each other’s welfare.
Here’s to our success. Cheers!
