Enjoying a good birthday weekend

Updated on September 23, 2012

It is hard to believe that as you grow older the years can sure go by fast. I can remember I had just turned 18, which was a few years ago now because I am now 27 and not afraid to tell my age. I used to think that from here on out, the years will not go by fast and I sure was wrong. It seems once you get past 18 years of age, the next few years just keep on coming quickly.

It feels nice when you can enjoy your birthday on a weekend. That is what happened with me, I wanted to find time to enjoy my birthday with my family and friends. Isn't it nice when you can really enjoy your birthday with those you love the most. As we grow older, some of us don't really care about our birthdays, it is just another regular day that reminds us that we are just getting older. However, there are people who don't live another year and just to be able to wake up on our birthday and breathe is something that really makes me appreciate my birthday.

Remember when you were young, how you really anticipated your birthday because you got presents and money and you had a little party? I noticed that as I grew up that it isn't about presents or money for me anymore, don't get me wrong who doesn't enjoy getting presents and money, however, for me it has been more about just being able to spend time with my family and friends and those that I love the most.

I am just happy to be able to live another year as of this weekend and I want to be able to enjoy more years like this. When it comes to your birthday, what is the most important part of it?
