Hello dear friends!

This year in particular, I was able to reflect more on the meaning of this day and see so many blessings I had to be thankful for. For many people the day of their birthday can be very stressful because of the many things they have to do and organize for their celebration, on the contrary, I have also met some people who consider it a normal and ordinary day where they follow the same routine of every day, there are also those who see the negative of adding another year of life, either because it means being closer to old age, feeling lonely, sad in short .... They only focus on thinking about what they do not have, what they want or what they lack, and perhaps they do not see everything that is around them and what they have been able to achieve and with whom they are at that moment.

So what can we be thankful for on this day?
First of all, it is a propitious day to be thankful for life, for having the opportunity to wake up, get up, be healthy and be able to do what we like, because not everyone has had that great opportunity. Enjoy every minute of your day, do not waste it and celebrate everything you can.
Be thankful for each of the people who accompany you, whether they are with you physically, or send you a message by whatsapp, instagram, mail, a call or by any other means, because you are present in their life and they have taken their time to congratulate you. Do not think that you are not important in case someone forgets, maybe they will remember later and let you know or just if they forgot remember that this can happen to many of us especially with so many things today.
Be thankful for every detail received from a hug, a card, a cake, a gift are expressions of the love they have for you.
Be thankful for all the food you can share, it is a blessing to have food on our table every day and even more so on that special day.
From a psychological point of view 1, celebrating our birthday is beneficial, as it is a way to better accept the passing of the years, it strengthens self-esteem and can help us make decisions about what to do in our future, what projects to carry out or what dreams to fulfill from that moment on. This celebration is mostly attributed to women rather than men, this may be the reason that some tend to forget these dates, anniversary or other particular event and may be celebrated differently. Perhaps everything also depends on the age of the birthday, it may be that when we get older, for example, instead of making us feel good, it may be a reason for sadness.

The important thing is to enjoy it as much as possible, as long as it makes us feel good and makes it a special and different day. Keep all the memories, and if possible take lots of pictures with your loved ones, it helps a lot for when they are not there and above all be thankful!
Particularly I have been fortunate to live very special moments on my birthday, and how do you live your day?
For the moment I say goodbye, thanks for reading, until next time!
