Every Birthday Is Special

     I had someone recently tell me that you can't gift yourself a birthday present. I have been doing it for years I told them. While the gift I given myself varies, the past couple of years I also make that gift include giving myself the day off.  About 3 or 4 years ago, my wise teenage daughter asked me a thought provoking question: "Why do you take the day off work for our birthdays, but not your own?" Let me tell you, that really opened my eyes and inspired a change within me. It made me realize I should be loving myself enough to take the day off from work, just like I do for them. It may seem like a small thing to show love for yourself on the day of your birth, but since I started gifting myself a birthday present, my love for myself has grown and continues to grow. 
     Every birthday is special, because it is the day the Universe gifted that person to the world. It is the day the birthday person was given a physical body, so they may begin their journey to share their unique talents and gifts with the world. It is the day your two main Guardian Angels started their life long journey with you and those Angels will always be around you. Since I own my own business, I am blessed to be able to take the day off not only my children's birthdays, but my birthday as well. I take my birthday off  to have fun and recharge my batteries however I feel is needed that day. 
     When you find yourself saying, "It's no big deal, it's just another day," stop and flip the script in your head. It is a big deal. It's the day you were able to have a physical body in this life so you could start your journey to share your gifts with the world. Before you allow the negative voice in your head to take over: yes, you do have gifts to share with the world (just because you may not be able to see them yet or define them doesn't mean they aren't there). Every person who acquires a physical body has a Divine purpose and with that is given special gifts to make an impact on the world. While many people may have gifts similar to others, only one you was created, and you are the only person with all of the gifts and talents you have packaged in the same body. We are all like snowflakes, no 2 of us are exactly alike. Celebrate your special day in the way you feel appropriate because you are worth celebrating! Love yourself enough to give yourself something to acknowledge your birthday. With time and consistency, it will increase your self-love and give you have happier days.
Love & Light,
