I have seen many people who eagerly wait for their birthdays just to go for partying and spend some time with their friends or loved ones. Come on people, you don’t need birthdays or some specific occasion to be happy or to spend some time with your colleagues. I believe if you’re happy today or any day, just consider that day only is your birthday and have fun.
Instead, I believe your birthday should remind you that How lucky you’re to be a part of this world and you should be thankful to GOD giving this life to you. Instead of partying or doing some unnecessary things, just go and help someone in need, through any ways you can. Your birthday is a special day and it reminds you of your own existence in the world on this same day. To honour this memory, do something prideful.
When it comes to helping people, you can do it many ways. Like if someone in your eyes is not able to earn his daily meals, just give him enough food. If someone is ill and has no money for treatment, then help that person by providing the money for his proper treatment. These things will give more satisfaction to you than go for some partying and expensive long rides. Going for parties is only a waste of time and money. Instead, utilise that money to give someone what he really needs.
I am saying this because I practically do it in my life. I don’t celebrate my birthday by going for expensive dinner and parties. Instead, I help people who really needs it. The World needs kindness, which is a rare element today. We have come to a point in our life that we don’t think about anyone but only for ourselves. We have forgotten our basic humanity trait, i.e. kindness and to help people. So, just go and do some kind work on this very special day of your life which you would remember the whole year until your next birthday. You can go for partying some other day. Make this day special by taking good wishes of someone. And believe me, nothing is more valuable in your life than taking the good wishes of someone who really needed your help. It’s your birthday, do something which really counts.
