Last March was the festive of my special day, my BIRTHDAY. YAY! I’m a year older now, but having a mentality that age is just in the mind, is a good way to maintain a youthful life. I remember my teenage years, that as soon as I reach 25, I swear that by that time, I have to prepare myself coz I’ll be a lovely wife to my husband and a responsible mother to my child/children.
Well, that didn’t happen! Haha…and I was never ready in entering that chapter yet. There’s really more to life when you live with it, instead of focusing more on myself and jumping into marriage in a snap with hurdles and without any preparation, I’m no selfish gauche (no offense to teenage dreamers and to early marriage pros). But I’m not closing doors to any possibilities, God has a plan.
My Mum allowed me to live independently the moment I started working. She’s giving me the freedom to decide on my own, I can even go wherever I want to go. You may have thought that it’s fine and normal, and that I may be exaggerating it, but having close “Family Ties “ is one of Philippine’s core values. We still ask our parents to permit us even if we’re at the right age. It entails respect that exist a strong mutual relationship bonded by love from each member of the family.
Family bonding is very important no matter how much years we age. Philippine families reunite and celebrate whatever occasion may arrive. Relatives decision matters too, I know it sounded too much, but sometimes, that’s just how it is.
I’m now a fully grown up woman.
I never planned to take this shot seriously. I have this playful and youthful persona, so as much as possible, I would prefer wearing bright, neon, soft or candy colored outfits. My friends are sweet and supportive, so they suggested that I have to wear a more mature color, Red and Black is perfect for the day, since RED will simply represent womanhood and my Birthday while Black will be for Maturity and Elegance.
