I LOVE birthdays. I love my birthday and other people’s birthdays too. Today, is my birthday. Happy Birthday me.
I have never understood why people dislike birthdays. I guess if you don’t have fond memories surrounding your birthday, you may have a sour taste about the subject. My two cents is this – birthdays (like life) are what you make of them. Enjoying your birthday is a choice. If it was a tough time around your birthday, it happened. I am sorry it happened, but you are you and you are amazing and worth celebrating – I know I am.
I really feel that a birthday is special and important. It is the best day of the year to hold your head up and say “I am awesome”. I made it another year, look what I have accomplished or been through. I came out the other side, older, wiser and still kicking.
I personally don’t care about the numbers going up. I am not afraid to be 37. This is my day. I will do what I want and not feel selfish about it because I deserve a day (or few). I invest myself in the lives of people I love all the time and today I invest in me.
Birthdays are what you make them. Do something that makes you happy on your birthday. Do not let others dictate how you feel about age or celebrating yourself – unless of course they are pouring you champagne and giving a toast in your honour.
