Happy Birthday Auckland
Happy Birthday. Congratulations on making it to 175.
There is so much to love about you but, since you’ve decided to become a Super City, I don’t agree with everything you have planned for your future.
My fear is that by the time you turn 200 you won’t recognize yourself.
Why are you intent on ripping up and improving everything all the time. What’s the rush? you are still so young and have your whole life ahead of you.
I can put up with your inadequacies and flaws so please stop trying to change them all at once.
Celebrate the good things rather than constantly dwelling on the bad.
Be flattered that so many people want to live here and don’t be in such a hurry to become better, you’re pretty good the way you are.
Remember; no - one is perfect.
