Happy Birthday to Me
I’m late posting this blog. Sorry, not sorry. I was busy celebrating my birthday! I made the day all about me.
I took the day off work and didn’t get out of bed until noon. How decadent! I shopped, taking advantage of some birthday discount coupons. Reading and watching TV came next. So many spooky movies streaming right now, I had a hard time choosing. (I settled on a movie called Halloween Party. It was better than I expected it to be.) I ordered dinner in because I don’t cook on my birthday. (P.F. Chang’s.) I rounded out the celebration with an ice cream sundae and a cocktail. And I stayed off social media all day. I wanted a birthday free from stress and drama.
Take Care of Yourself
Self-care is something we often neglect. When we look at our calendar full of obligations and commitments, it’s hard to make guilt-free time for ourselves. But it’s important to do so. Taking care of ourselves gives us the strength and energy we need to fulfill those obligations and commitments.
How do you make your day special? What do you do to celebrate you? Tell us here on the blog or on Facebook or Twitter. And thank you to all who sent me lovely birthday wishes. You added meaning to my day.
