Age Quod Agis....

Happy Birthday... Amrika is 235 but them Amrikans act like George Washington was born in 23 BC and the White House was built in the 11th century kya.. haha! Malia Obama is 12 but her dad thinks she is 13! For Nepali parents.. it's the other way round kya ... we are always 12... and even at this old age of 25 (hehe!)..... I get grounded and have curfew sometimes hehe!

Today is also my darling ko b'day... Happy Birthday coach, my friend, my editor and my lover and one of the smartest women I have ever known! Better work on your self-esteem kya! Please do not worry that you haven't accomplished much at this young age! Give yourself some space hai! Just take it one day at a time and do what you are doing! Age Quod Agis!

There used be this big Latin thing on my 5th grade ko wall. 'Age Quod Agis' ..... Our class teacher would say it everyday till he dropped dead and we had to bury him in our school's backyard. I still remember him because he died on my birthday!

Well, let's get back to 'Age Quod Agis' ... forget whatever happened in the past and don't worry too much about the future. Believe in yourself and do everything from your heat and soul kya!

Little children live intensely in the present moment, neither in the past nor in the future. As the French writer La Bruyre once put it, ‘Children have neither past nor future, but they have something we seldom have—they rejoice in the present.’

This is the child-like trait which the New Testament would have us imitate. Age quod agis—literally, ‘do what you are doing’…The future does not yet exist and the past is gone forever. What we have is the present moment. By it we are fashioning our eternity.…

And I am really good @ stealing them lines from people.. so here it goes again.... "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

And the story of St. Francis of Assisi always fascinated me in middle school... "Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible."

Happy Birthday my love.... I luff du forever! I don't just love you; I am undeniably, irreversibly , ultimately and forever in love with you. I'm yours!
