As a child, my birthday happiness was dependent on the reaction and response of others. I (was forced to) realize, as I got older, that dependence is unhealthy.
It’s empowering to know your value and worth runs deeper than people’s memory, financial situation or Facebook alerts.
Your birthday’s special and valuable simply because YOU ARE HERE. God saw it fit to grace you with the gift of life and all it’s treasures. That’s enough. Stop waiting and start celebrating… throw your own party even if you are the only one invited! If folks show up, let that be the icing on the cake.
How do you take responsibility for your happiness on your birthday?
