I’m going to let you in on a not-so-secret secret: I LOVE my birthday! Every year weeks before it’s arrived I start a count down and inform everyone I see that it’s XX days till my birthday. While some may think this is annoying and some still might think I am crazy for announcing my birthday (for fear of the forbidden age being leaked), I don’t mind. I love my birthday and I love me and I want to celebrate!!
Now, there’s one thing that I’ve noticed about birthdays that doesn’t seem quite right. We only celebrate once a year! Your birth is miraculous and every day that you are on the earth is miraculous, so why just limit the celebration of your life to just one day a year?
Fear not my sunny warriors! I have come up with a pretty sweet solution – let me break it down? There are 24 hours in a day and 12 days in a month. There are 60 minutes in an hour and 30/1 days in a month. That means that every day, everyone on the PLANET can celebrate their birthday twice a day!!! What the heck am I talking about you ask? Well, for instance, my birthday is July 17th – or in clock terms 7:17. If your birthday was March 28th, you can celebrate your birthday at 3:28 every day!
Here are a few things that I like to do to celebrate my birthday “on the clock”:
- Happy dance to one of my favorite songs
- Spend a few minutes meditating
- HULA HOOP!
- If I am in the car, I give a Woo-Hoo!! and wave to whoever might be passing by
- Have a piece (or two) of dark chocolate
- Enjoy a deliciously warm cup of tea
- Mini-yoga session with my favorite postures
You are so special and should be celebrated more than just once a year! Will you join me? How will you celebrate your birthday on the clock? Please share your ideas below!
