For me, birthdays are a HUGE deal. Whether it’s celebrating mine, or my husband’s or anyone in my family or friends, I get super excited. Let’s face it, it’s a great excuse to have fun! When I set up my classroom at the beginning of the year, the first thing I do is print out balloons and children stick their birth dates on them (so sweet, right?)
Every single person has a birthday and whether you celebrate it or not, it marks the date when you become that one year older. For those that are young look forward to getting that one year older and for those that are older, birthdays tend to phase into any other normal day. For me, as the years go by I still get MORE excited each year!! This year I decided to reflect over the past year and set some goals for the future (yess, getting more responsible).
So another year has passed, what have I achieved over the year? SO much!! (so I’d like to think). Starting this blog was one BIG thing. Climbed mount Snowdon. Walked 90km from Najaf to Kerbala. Used a jet ski to navigate my way through Langkawi islands. Finally mastered how to cook rice. Tamed my addiction to shoes (let’s see how long that lasts). Discovered a new talent for party planning. Made some really good friends and strengthening ties with old ones (I’m sure there’s more but just can’t remember any at this very moment).
Overall, I feel birthdays should be celebrated whatever age you are (or pretend you are) – be it big or small – as it’s the one day in a year that is all about you, an opportunity to celebrate life and be joyful for the chance to be with friends and family.
Happy born day to me! 28/09
