My birthday is rapidly approaching (Dec. 22nd) and I cannot understand why everyone does not love their birthday? I know people that are older will tell me it’s just another day or that all it symbolizes is getting old. I’m turning 26 and yeah it’s depressing that I’m now on the slippery slope to THIRTY, but c’mon people!
I know I’m a bit of a prima donna (my Mom’s fault, not mine), but I think a birthday is a special day where that person gets extra love and attention. If you do it right, like me, a birthday is YOUR day to shine. It’s all about ME (in a fun, nice way… not bitchy) and all that excitment is contagious. People don’t mind letting it be “your day”.
And why not? Life is not always a bowl full of cherries. Treat yourself!
