Happy Birthday to me!
I consider it a part of my personal growth to dole out this traditional celebratory video right when the day started 🤗
I’ve always felt that birthdays should be where the person is made to feel special. After all, it’s the one day that is distinct about you.
Over time, though, I realized I put too much stock on my birthday, and it became more of a disappointment due to my overreaching hopes than a day for me to enjoy.
Until last year, I used to wait right from 12 am to see who all wished me on Facebook, and would wait it out until my close friends would text me.
But not this year. I’ve come to the realization that trying to feel special ends up making me feel the opposite, when I don’t get wished by many people or when someone I thought would definitely wish me doesn’t wish at all.
The whole thing sounded so stupid to me, that I’ had an epiphany of sorts.
I made my day be just that – My day.
Now, I don’t have a care who remembers my birthday or not, it’s important to me that I make myself feel worth it. ⚡
My happiness is in the little things, so I focused on those aspects that livened up my day.
And on my birthday, I had something insanely mundane planned – but it made me feel happier than any party or gift would have.
It might sound pointless, but to me this was a very big accomplishment of my self-worth – that I deemed myself worthy, free of external validation.
What I want you to do is this:
👉 Remember your loved one’s birthday – a simple Happy Birthday and a couple smiley faces go a long way in livening someone’s day up.
👉 Think of just one thing you’d really like to do on your birthday and make sure you do that when the day comes.
