Last week I celebrated my birthday by reviewing my previous years’ birthday lists (2012 2013), eating vegan cupcakes from Pushkin’s, riding my newly tuned up bike around Midtown and taking my friends and their kids bowling on a Saturday afternoon. Pretty low key and yet still celebratory. Pretty much a reflection of where I am in my life right now.
Some years I have chosen to skip the party and almost pretend like my birthday wasn’t happening or that it wasn’t a big deal. Looking back, it seems like I did this in years that things weren’t going as I had hoped or planned.
I would love to hear from you. Please share how you celebrate your birthday.
- Are you a huge party every year kind of person or do you love a low key get together with a few close friends?
- Or do you skip the whole thing?
- Or does it depend on how things are going in your life?
- How do you feel about birthdays?
With lots of self-kindness and love,
