Happy Birthday !
Is it normal to be a little blue on your birthday ? Sure. It happens. We all hope that our birthdays should be days we celebrate, but some times they can be depressing too. Why ? We may get a little introspective about our lives. We may find a wrinkle or line on our face where we didn't have one before. We may see grey hairs. We may even wonder why we haven't accomplished more in our lives.
It doesn't have to be like that. Birthdays should be fun !! It sounds like you need a little pampering. So, why not go out with the hubby ? Go to a movie and dinner. If you don't want to do that, how about getting a manicure and pedicure ? How about going to the hairdresser and getting a new hair cut. How about a massage ??? Wouldn't that be wonderful ?
If you've been under a lot of stress recently, your birthday is a good opportunity to treat yourself and unwind. It's okay to be a little selfish on your birthday. Have some fun !! Moping around the house isn't going to help.
Look at all the good things that happened in your life this year and think of how many wonderful things will happen in the next. Like a fine wine, we get better with age.
