    Now I can’t agree more on this πŸ˜€ From the time I started living in hostels till my last bday we were celebrating it on midnights πŸ˜› but then this year we changed it and decided to celebrate it next day with dinner and cake and just wish each other on bday mornings πŸ™‚ I think its good that way πŸ™‚ All my life as a kid under my parents roof I have done that πŸ˜› then why bother now πŸ™‚ Well said πŸ™‚ Each day is passing phase and it feels good to look back at times πŸ™‚

    I am a very light sleeper … sometimes even heavy breathing is enough to wake me up πŸ˜› I envy the young who can celebrate till late at night and still make it to work fresh as daisy. It’s the 30s I tell you … that makes you hate all things noisy and late. I don’t even wake up till midnight on my birthday πŸ˜‰ Hope you get to catch up on your sleep.

    There is nothing wrong in anything, it’s just that we have to adjust to changing times in our lives. Even our physical aspects plays a role as you’ve mentioned.

    Belated happy birthday though 😊

  4. Aseem says:

    I guess that’s what life is about, ain’t it? At each phase of life we meet new people and have new experiences. While initially, we may have a few issues in adjusting to the new phase, with time we surely get used to it and move on.

    Gosh! That must be hard. Hope that’s done soon.

  6. Parul Thakur says:

    I agree to that. No complains at all πŸ™

  7. Stacie says:

    I used to be such a good sleeper and now that I’m older I have a hard time, even without noise everywhere. Sigh.

    There is no other way except acceptance .Though I dont dislike organizing parties but these parties are for whom ? for self pleasure or other’s discomfort ?

  9. Modern Gypsy says:

    Ah yes – those phases of life! 20s were all about late night parties and loud noise. Sometimes I need to remind myself of that too, when the neighbors are having their parties and I’m trying to catch my 40 winks!

    I think I have always been an old soul, no partying no loud music πŸ˜€ but yeah I do remain awake long hours when I see my cousins and friends and only disturbing people sleeping at our home πŸ˜‰ But I can understand since there is a phase of life where many young people do it and they can only realize after they move to next phase.

  11. SHILPA GARG says:

    I liked the way you reflected on the phases of life that we go through. It’s so interesting so see how we grow, change and adjust to the new phases of our lives, with the passage of time.

  12. So true! Completely relate to this:)

  13. Harmony says:

    So true. We have to embrace the season we’re in and recognize when it’s time to move on to a new one.

    To everything there is a season…
    Your post makes me laugh because I’m in my late 50’s and I recently started taking line dancing lessons. At these lessons most of the participants are in their late 60’s and 70’s which makes me feel like a youngster and is one of the main reasons I love to go. At every age we need to embrace life and not look back with longing to our youth, we will always be young to someone one and old to someone else.

    Ohh the late night worries and counting the hours left! This has become a daily routine for me, and it sure doesn’t help when I feel sleepy in the first two hours class everyday . And yet I am late to sleep the following night.

  16. So true! Acceptance can be hard but I guess each phase has its share of fun!

  17. That’s such a refreshing thing to say. I am used to people blaming others for the problems that they face. Seeing it the way you do, makes for a peaceful night’s sleep — whatever little you got out of it, and makes waking up more peacfulrather than cranky. Love the way you think!

  18. REKHA says:

    I am so glad that you compared them with your younger self instead of cursing them. Mostly people do that forgetting what they had done years ago. And yes, this phase of life looks only for the number of hours we can sleep. With the Metro construction happening right next to our apartments, sleep is always disturbed since past two years.

  19. Birthdays are always fascinating !!! Yes, you rightly said, acceptance is life.

    Parul, it is really acceptance that helps us move on in life. But, when I look back at my past and then compare it with my present, I am definitely glad I lived and enjoyed those moments, but more than that, I am glad that I am here, in this now, which often seems better than the past. Each stage in ;life has its joys that feel good only in that age.

  21. Tina Basu says:

    Mentally I am still in my 20s I guess, I like all that jazz about birthdays. Though now I have to maintain a silence so that my boy sleeps!

  22. Obsessivemom says:

    You are right – life is but phases. The idea of a late night doesn’t agree with me either. During younger days I could stay up simply chatting till the wee hours and then during my journalism days I’d get home by 2.30/3. Now I cannot imagine how it was even possible. I count my 7 hours of sleep like Shylock counted his gold.

      I don’t count my hours but I still want to hit the bed sleeping πŸ˜‰ The sound welcoming houses we have in India, well – I can hear when couple next door shouts at each other.

  23. Nate says:

    I have to fight myself not to look at the clock on nights that I can’t sleep. If I do, I stay awake longer doing those calculations you talk about and worrying that I will fail at everything I have to do the next day because of no-sleep!

  24. I completely understand what you’re experiencing. I hate when my neighbors create too much of sound late night and I am very vocal about my thoughts, so they know they don’t want to agitate me. Personally, I have done a lot of crappy things at night during my 20s at my friend’s place or even on the streets of Mumbai, but I have never disturbed anyone in any way. I always make sure I live my life quietly.
