I mean this is the day you were born! Kind of a big deal, isn't it? It's the day you came crashing into this world and making the world a better place to live in with your presence.
10 Reasons to Celebrate Your Birthday?
You're Alive! Yep that's right … you are still here. You made it another year! We all know how precious and fragile life is. Don't take one second for granted.
To be surrounded by all the people you love is a great way to remember how loved you are and how much you mean to those that love you.
I always say if you cannot truly love and be good to yourself, you will never be good to anyone else. So honor yourself. Spoil yourself. Love yourself. And celebrate YOU!
Whether you've been with your partner for a long time, or not, you’ve no doubt loved intensely at some point in your life. Aging means you’ve had more time to love and more opportunities and people to love. That's wonderful!
Who said only the kids get to munch on birthday food? I treated myself to a wonderful chocolate croissant this morning for my birthday. And I didn’t feel one second of guilt.
I think this is a good thing. When you're young, you merely celebrate birthdays. After you've put some real miles on your tires - so to speak - you can appreciate the journey. And you don't take things for granted, as you tend to do without that perspective.
In our younger years, we might whine when we don't get the gift we want or, when something else disappoints us that seems like a big deal to our childhood selves. With maturity, we know how to put those things in perspective. We know what's trivial and what really matters.
Birthday cake is still one of the very best things about birthdays, no matter how many you’ve had and who doesn't like gifts? No matter how old you grow, you are always happy to receive that favorite basketball from Spalding or the dinner jacket you found at the supermarket last month.
Just like at the beginning of a New Year, a birthday marks the beginning of a New Year as well where you get to strive for something better each year and accomplish those goals. It keeps you striving for more! You want to shed a few kilos or you want to open that dream business or get the desired grades with every birthday.
