Last year I did a birthday post about being grateful for your birthday, feel free to check that out as well. (Be Grateful For Your Birthday). This year I would like to express the importance of having a birthday gathering.
Some people don’t like their birthdays for a number of reason. Some people love their birthdays. Some people will celebrate the day of, some will celebrate the week of and some will celebrate the whole month. Some will even celebrate their unbirthays year round!
Birthday’s are not about getting older. We get older every minute of our lives, but we also get smarter and experience more. We judge our age by birthdays but for some it is mostly just a guide line. I am 32 going on 33 this Friday and I certainly don’t look or feel that old. My dad has been 29 for 37 years. When his youngest (me) hit 30 that was a proud moment for him, he is now younger than all of his children! He may be in his 60’s but he has keep his spirit very youthful for many years. We all wish to stay young or reminisce about when we were younger and we can do both.
I have an important message for those that do not like their birthdays. Birthday gatherings are so important in our lives. Your birthday is an excuse to bring those important to you, together. Can you think of a more positive experience then getting together with friends and family in honor of you? As we get older responsibilities in our lives start stacking higher and higher. We get busier and busier with our lives. A birthday is a simple means to bring us together again with those close to you. When your birthday comes around again don’t just sit home and be a bum, invite everyone out to do something together. It does not matter if it is a well planned evening, a house party or just a last minute night out. Get out there and celebrate your birthday with the ones you love. Take that opportunity to see those you care about that you do not see that often.
I used to be one of those people that did not enjoy birthdays. They were never really anything special to me. Now I have a much different view. Just like anything else in life a birthday is what YOU make of it. You want a good birthday, make it a good birthday! I hope you are looking forward to your birthday, I know I am looking forward to mine!
Make sure you share this with anyone that has a birthday! 😉 Thank you so much
