Celebrating A Lie!


"Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me."

How could this happen to me? What happened that day, I could have not prepared for it in a million years. It was definitely not the way I had thought I would find out. It was like something out of a movie playing in slow motion. Only I could not control the reel.

I was going through a file, which my mother has arranged, that consisted of all my Medical papers, citizenship and school papers (aren't mothers great)..I was excited going through a file that basically covered my whole life, from papers with mini footprints of my birth to my University grades. It made me happy to reminiscence on old memories..I was searching for my Birth certificate for Passport application purposes, so I proceeded to find it.

What I read next left me feeling numb inside. I could hardly breath. My body started tensing up. I couldn't take my eyes off the letter. What it said shocked me. Who could have guessed that one line in a letter could change someone's life so drastically? I felt my whole past flashing before my eyes. . .All this time, I was celebrating my birthday on the wrong date! It was all a lie!

Double checking the writing to ensure that I've read it correctly and rubbing my eyes to make sure that I wasn't hallucinating. On the Birth Certificate it certified that I was actually born a couple of days after the actual date that I have been celebrating all my life.

Now I had to face an even greater truth. The truth that I was sort of living a lie and the fact that all these years I've been basing my Astrological readings on that date, a date that wasn't me :(

One year has passed since I've found out about my actual birth date. I have decided to continue celebrating my birthday on the incorrect date, due to the fact that I have gotten used to that date and it's part of my life. Yet, I still get bothered sometimes about finding out the truth...

Something To Think About: How would you react/feel if you found out that you were actually born on a different date?
