There are two types of people in this world, those that celebrate their birthday for an entire month and those that try to hide the fact that it's their birthday. I fall in the middle but definitely lean towards the latter. It's not that I'm worried about getting older, I just struggle a bit with all the attention. Of course I absolutely love all my friends and family wishing me a happy birthday and showering me with love on my special day, I would definitely be sad if they didn't, but I'm horrible at returning that to others so it makes me feel bad. I swear one of my worst qualities is the fact that I have a very hard time remembering birthdays. I know I need to do something special for that person and I know it's the same day every year, but for some reason it always seems to sneak up on me!
I'm so grateful for all that is done for me and it makes me feel bad if I don't do the same in return. I honestly think I have a hard time remembering birthdays because I don't put a major priority on mine! I'm usually just interested in keeping it low key because that's the type of person I am. I have to be honest though, I don't necessarily freak out about getting older but the older you get the faster the time goes and let me tell you, I'm very aware of that!
So today's Make It Through Monday Moment is for those that struggle with getting older. Each year our birthday rolls around we should try to think this way
So cute right?! I definitely need to remember this each year! As I was searching for a quote for today, I came across a few that remind us we should be grateful we get to turn another year older. There are far too many people in this world that would do anything for one more birthday. As we blow out more and more candles each year, freaking out a little about getting older, let's remember to be thankful we get to celebrate another birthday.
So cheers to anyone that shares June 4th with me! I hope you have the happiest of birthdays!
