GRATITUDE

GRATITUDE

This is going to be a very boring article, so I might as well give you the heads up, however seeing as it is my birthday today, I am hoping you will indulge me. I will keep this short and expect that claws do not come at me lol.

When I was a teenager and in my early 20s, my birthday was a big deal and another strike on my tally of independence. I looked forward to my birthdays and celebrated with gusto, even if it was just by getting together with friends and mixing alcoholic drinks and laughing our eyes out. As I approached my mid 20s, it wasn’t fun anymore. I started making choices; career choices, financial choices, I started growing up and it wasn’t all fun and games. I began to resent it and I started ignoring my birthdays and literarily holding my breath on the day, hoping that my colleagues would not see the notification on Facebook. To make matters worse, a guy I was really into back then left me for a guy of 22 years. That was when my quarter life crisis kicked in; I was officially old.

The turning point was my 27th birthday last year.

That was when it hit me in the face that I had a lot to be grateful for. You see, getting older is a blessing and a privilege denied to many, so it should be celebrated. Getting older ultimately makes one selfish; you become selfish in a good way because it becomes about you and you only. You do the things you want to do because you enjoy them and not because someone expects you to do them, you write your all rule book and set your bucket list free of interference. Getting older allows you to live on your terms as well as march in a band to a tune you had already picked out. So for the first time last year, I had 27 boldly written on my cake, and not once did I cringe when my age was mentioned.

Today I turn 28 and I have learned to love life and be grateful for the little things that are often overlooked; for health, for a career, and for friends, even if it’s for the bouts of wine-fuelled laughter that we often share. Last year also, I started dating an amazing man who loves me with all my warts and imperfections. This drama queen constantly reminds me to live, to laugh and never to take myself too seriously. For that I am grateful too.

So tonight, I shall have a few friends over for dinner (I am sure the other Mr. Macauley is already googling recipes) and celebrate 28 years of living, of making terrible mistakes, of falling down and getting up. And most importantly, 28 years of discovery. There will be lots of wine and chardonnay and at the end of the evening, like I did last year. I will get on a table and sing Whitney Houston’s “One Moment In Time” at the top of my tone-deaf voice, affirming my resolve to live, to laugh and to love.

I told you this was gonna bore you… Anyway happy birthday to me!

        Pp, I think its high time we all began to ignore this attention-seeking wuss called chizzie.
        His/her desire to perpetually say nasty stuff about other people is appaling.
        To make such hateful comment about someone, particulary on his birthday anniversary is in extremely poor taste and smacks of being ill breed and ill mannered.

    Happy birthday, Dennis. You are a great guy and have lived a great life (I can say that because you have narrated some of your experiences on this blog). Growing old is a blessing in disguise. Especially for people in a materialistic generation who live for beauty and great bodies. With the appearance of the first few wrinkles, cracks begin to show up in that false material world. It forces us to ask, “This cannot be all. What else is there?” This sets the stage for the entry of WISDOM. Life is beautiful, just as it is. Live every moment to its fullest, as I trust you are already doing. Work to leave something behind for the world; a legacy. And you have all it takes! I would like to meet you in person, dear colleague, and dissect your intriguing mind all by myself. Don’t worry, you’ll survive the procedure! Haha! Have a great day!

    Happy Birthday to one of this blog’s most amazing guys!! **plants a quick kiss on Dennis cheek and scampers away b4 Mrs Macaulay grabs a pot of boiling hot water** … before my 24th birthday, i never really gave much thought to the passing years, but on my 24th birthday, it hit me “dude, you’re getting old, you’re 6years away from 30 and you aint rich yet?!** fucking hell!!” … on my 25th birthday i celebrated with mixed emotions … “bitch, you’re 15 years away from 40 and you’re a quarter century old!!**, hoe, your ass is getting old” … in the few years since that time, i have learned to live with the inevitability of the passage of time, to live to the fullest, to seize every moment as you can never be sure of tomorrow, to live with few regrets. I have learned to be a little bit selfish and to protect my heart from hurt and pain which abounds in the world. Thankfully, i have been able to actually improve upon my looks and gurl – swag as the years go by. The wrinkles have thanks to a strict diet and regular exercise remained at bay … so far. As Serena Williams says, “30 is the new 13”!! so hun, you’re just 12!! go out and party, have a blast, get drunk (but dont drive) and generally be thankful for all you’ve achieved at a relatively young age.
    I wish i could be there, should be a nice party, we’d twerk and wind waist till wee hours of the morning …

    Here is the line that really got me feeling so happy for you:
    ‘ Last year
    also, I started dating an amazing man who
    loves me with all my warts and imperfections.’

    This singular achievement of yours is what I’ve been consciously struggling attain since my teenage years.

    I’ve crossed the 30 year mark now, and I’m still single (and finally tired of searching ).

    Your gratitude is therefore well founded bro. Rejoice, celebrate, have fun. A very happy birthday to you.
    And do not approach 30 with a sense of foreboding. You’ve learned how to be selfish in a positive way. I love that. Try and apply that selfishness when the marriage pressure group start knocking on your door.
    Wishing you the best.

          Lol. I guess I’m being grossly misunderstood. Be it deliberate or otherwise, my opinion remains.4 d avoidance of doubts,gayism has always been with us dating back to our fore bearers but it has never affected our culture where every one is expected to raise families.there is nothing un-african about civilisation and modernization but neo-colonialism is a big set back on any people. It’s worse than colonialism.it beats me why we can’t be proud of who we are. As I said in my first submission,I acknowledge d fact that there guys that can’t stand women. I respect that. ,

          I can’t comprehend why the insults. Though I’m not surprised because over time I have come to d realization that a good number of us (gays) are so loose with words. They feel that being gay means license to live and talk to anybody anyhow. I’m particularly disapointed that this unfortunate act is coming from Pinkpanther. It realy shook d regards n opinions I earlier had on you. If u had noted on this blog that participants opinion must conform with yours,I wouldn’t have been here…sad

            I was not being typically gay when I insulted you. Please don’t make the loss of my temper about my sexuality. I said the things I said becos I get very tired of arguments like the one you peddled. Granted I should have been in more control of my temper when I replied you, but there’s nothing that galls me more than seeing people (gay people no less) trying to dismiss homosexuality as an aberration. Or an inconvenience.
            I apologize for calling you an idiot. but I don’t apologize for the indignation that drove me to say the things I said.

              I needed no apologies. I was only expressing my disappointments. My opinion remains my opinion no matter how unpopular. I’m gay and proud of it. I’m not ashamed to say it anywhere but I can’t be irrelevant or passive d society. The things I have said where not said to gain support or acceptance. I speak from experience. Once upon a time,My Dad threatened to kill himself if I don’t quit (he doesn’t make empty threats),my sister asked “God,why my wonderful bros of all people”. It was being real that later changed their minds to accept the fact that gays are a special creature by d Almighty.u may wonder why this ranting? It’s all to encourage others who are struggling with their sexuality in a society like ours to know that u don’t have to wish that u are a white or to become “un-African” b4 u find solace in who God has made u.Gay is noble.why can’t gay guys be noble men? Don’t 4get! .dis is my opinion

                I get what you are trying to say now. Perhaps becos you had to rant to explain your point. lol. And I have lots of words in response to that. But the issue of society’s demands versus the gay identity is over-flogged. So I’ll just let it rest here.

            And please, whatever ‘regard and opinion’ you had of me…? I didn’t ask for the pedestal you apparently placed me on. I’m human, flawed, and with opinions myself that aren’t always nobly expressed.

        an African man js expected to continue his lineage through BIOLOGICAL offspring. right? so that means African men who are unable to father children are automatically excluded from your definition of ‘africanness’ suddenly. I know a prominent man married for over 25yrs but who’s marriage produced no children, I also know of another old man who is rumoured to have been unable to consummate his marriage with his wife & therefore his best friend had to he called in to discreetly bed his wife and produce children on his behalf. I am sure thay throughout your rosy idealistic African existence, such men have existed. Are we to assume that these men and all like them are automatically stripped of their africanness on account of your narrow minded definitions? NB: ‘gayism’ to the best of my knowledge is not a word which exists in the English language, I feel like pulling out my hair each time i hear that word thrown around!! plz open your mind and know that culture is/always has been dynamic. the feudalistic ideals which you cling so tightly to are not exclusive to Africa, if you care to read some historical literature, you will find that these ideals existed even in Western societies, but like I said earlier, culture is dynamic and therefore these societies have learned to move with the times (a concept you’re obviously having a herculean task grasping)

      fun jo and let our hair
      down “.
      Every bit of it was fun indeed.
