The Birthday Season
I love birthdays. They're a great excuse to celebrate yourself. Our existence is a mathematical improbability so we should jump with joy at simply being alive. I appreciate that fact every day.
Plus, birthdays are good occasions to reflect on our lives. Look back with sentiment, look forward with hope, and assess the present with as much clarity as we can muster.
I believe that birthday celebrations shouldn't be limited to one day, they should receive at least a week of celebration. So, since my birthday is in one week (Nov. 3rd), I hereby officially open the festivities!
Do you like to celebrate your birthday? Has your attitude toward it changed as you've gotten older? (I'm older than dirt but I still enjoy the day.)
