Out of all the holidays, your birthday is just for you and only for you. Make it a truly special day and celebrate yourself. Celebrate the day you were born, the life you have lived. Feel gratitude for your parents, your siblings and family who gave you your first experiences. And remember, this is your day, not a holiday we share with everyone.
I like to go on memory lane on my birthday. Personally, it is not a day for gifts, but for appreciation and gratitude. I only think of pleasant moments and experiences. My birthdays as a child were always special. My mother went out of her way to make them unforgettable. We didn’t have a lot but she always baked some delicious cakes, and I was allowed to invite all my little friends. Beautiful memories, and I still thank my mother for them although she has been gone for a very long time.
As I mentioned, my birthday it is not a day about gifts. I don’t expect any although I am very appreciative should they arrive unexpectedly. Mostly I cherish the day of my birth through gestures of love and friendship; I treasure everyone in my life and feel blessed.
Birthdays are special occasions to get centered and finding balance. Make it a day all about you, you are worth it. Give a toast to who you are, what you have accomplished and what is waiting for you. It is a special day indeed.
