Birthdays only come once a year and starting creative rituals on your birthday are a great way to mark the passage of your life.
Here are a few simple ideas:
Make yourself a Birthday card - let it reflect where you are on your life journey. I love making cards and I am looking forward to breaking out my art supplies.
Give yourself a present - it could be something simple like buying art supplies, books, or getting a manicure. I get a facial on my birthday, it feels great and it takes away that extra year, at least for a few days.
Do something to honor yourself, your body, and your strengths - take a class, cooking a special meal, or just meditating. Today I am going to get my favorite meal, have some wine, and watch sappy movies all night.
Spending time with yourself on your birthday is a great way to reflect on the past year and the year ahead. Creating your own birthday rituals are a great way to appreciate yourself and the gifts you offer the world.
I am looking forward to spending a day filled with activities I don't do very often, but wish I could. Share a ritual you do every year just for yourself on your birthday.
