Beautiful poem! Lately I’ve been neglecting celebrations because I just haven’t had the space for them, due to new developments at work and in my family life. I sort of celebrated my birthday with three friends three weeks after the fact, and although it was awesome, I didn’t really connect those feelings with my birthday at all. It just felt like a fun night out. Thanks for reminding me how powerful celebrations are!

I celebrated my last birthday by going to a fancy restaurant that I'd been waiting to go to since it's a little expensive and an occasion helps soften the blow to the wallet!

One (or both) of my kids have had soccer games on the last few of my birthdays, so I’ve spent at least part of it at the field, cheering them on.

A beautiful poem, Punit! Happy, happy birthday! πŸ₯³

Last year my husband and I celebrated our birthdays on one of the weekends between the two - we got together with family, and camped overnight in my parents' garden. Not bad for October...! πŸ₯Ά

(Okay, it was a bit of a cheat - we were in our campervan, not a tent!) 🀣

Happy birthday! My last birthday was on Easter - which was so fun! It was like the whole day was a big party, but the attention wasn't on me. Most people forgot to wish me a happy birthday, but that was ok.
