About my birthday

About my birthday


A few weeks back, I celebrated my birthday. It was normal, like every other birthday of course.

But, with every year passing year, I find myself at the same place.

Every 16th of July I feel happy, sad, thankful, & guilty.


I feel happy because, let me beΒ  honest, it’s good toΒ  be in the spotlight for five minutes.Β  Plus, my husband makes my day special. From cooking, to not paying attention to his ‘mobile’ t all!!! So, it’s a win-win πŸ˜‰



Its not the age, but the fact that,Β  my thirty by thirty list has turned to thirty **** by thirty.Β  I feel sad, thatΒ  that one goal I wanted to achieve keeps testing me. I had to reach my goal weight on my birthday in 2014.Β  And, then I’m hereΒ  with the same weight in/out in 2017.



I feel thankful for all that God has blessed me with. I believe in God & prayers. ( & miracles) I feel my birthday, is the perfect time to show gratitude to God.Β  Another year gone & another year to look forward to.



Well. I tend to get way off the wagon, and celebrate my birthday for a few days. I just get to comfortable with the unholy food.Β  And, I’m not evenΒ  indicating the 2am binging done while watching ‘ Younger’ πŸ˜‰


I do hope that by my next birthday, I’m able to get rid of the ‘sad’ thing & reduce, my guilt.


What are your happy, sad, thankful , guilty or any other moments? Shall I share a secret? I also bake a cake for myself. Because, I like those better than the market ones πŸ˜‰

It’s ok to be weird;)

  • Belated birthday wishes… I hope you had a blast. It’s wonderful when someone makes it special for you. Don’t feel guilty… Eat and enjoy… It’s your bday after all πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ I eat like a truck driver before and after my B-Day πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚hope you reach your goals by the next one.

  • Belated Birthday wishes Zainaab. Well, with so much to be grateful for, I would relegate the weight to a number. For me personally, losing weight is difficult despite all the curbs I put on my food. So, now I have changed my objective to ‘Staying Healthy’, It lets me have a more holistic approach. I always look to eat healthy, stay healthy.

  • Hey Zainab! Happy Happy Birthday πŸ™‚

    I love how you mentioned gratitude because that is something that most of us tend to forget. And that cake looks so amazing! Don’t feel guilty. Birthday babies are entitled to one cake for their birthday celebrations πŸ™‚

  • A very happy birthday to very beautiful women, you deserve ton of happiness and surprises. I loved this post , der was something about it , that connected me a lot to it happy , sad , guilt and everything I think its all normal .
    And all I wish for you to have a great life ahead especially with such a great husband of yours , because according to what I know people don’t usually take a off day from their cellphone

  • That cake looks delicious! You shouldn’t feel guilty for indulging in it at all. Weight is just a number. As long as you are fit and healthy and have so many things to be thankful for, don’t worry about reaching or not reaching a specific number. Have fun and belated happy birthday!

  • Happy belated birthday Zainab. Looks like you had fun with cake πŸ™ƒπŸ˜€ I also celebrate my birthday for a longer duration πŸ™ˆ

  • Belated Happy Birthday! We share the birthday month so I am more happy of your celebrations! But there are more things we should be thankful for than the guilt and the sadness – Life has its own ways of giving your pleasures in the sadness and the guilt- it’s ok to let go of sometimes!
