A Birthday Celebration is a life affirming event. Celebrating a birthday is making a statement that your life is significant and meaningful. You are saying, my life is worth living and therefore I am celebrating that I am alive for another year. It is a time to get together with friends and family and celebrate the life that you are living.
Birthdays may also be a time of melancholy reflection if we are not happy with our current station in life. For this reason it is good to have family and friends close to you to let you know how special you are.
A birthday is a time to celebrate life and be joyful for the chance to be with friends, family and those who care about us.
A birthday can be seen as a serious or joyful time depending on one's age and one's attitude towards life.
Another year has passed and we look back on failures and successes. We think about our goals for the future and reflect on the past year. These are all thoughts that may came up on a birthday, but the main thing is to use a birthday as an opportunity to celebrate life and be joyful for the chance to be with friends and family.
