Sev­en days ago I turned thir­ty-sev­en.

I took the day off in lieu for work­ing the pre­vi­ous Sat­ur­day. My wife took off from her work too.

My wife and son sur­prised me with a cou­ple of gifts, one of which is my favourite organ­ic dark choco­late from a local co-op. Giv­en the cur­rent world events, I did not feel too excit­ed to ven­ture any­where out­side our love­ly neigh­bour­hood.

I spent the rest of the day with my wife and son, chat­ting togeth­er, play­ing video games, and eat­ing out at our favourite places. I also spoke to my par­ents, broth­er, sis­ter and an old friend, all from afar over­seas.

I had a small and sim­ple cel­e­bra­tion.

I feel for­tu­nate and priv­i­leged for every­thing in my life and being able to live how I envi­sioned. I have sev­er­al ambi­tions to pur­sue, and that is prob­a­bly a life long endeav­our. But at this point in life, I don’t wish my life to be any dif­fer­ent. For that, I am very grate­ful.
