25 Things I Learned From Birthdays


25 Things I Learned From Birthdays. So, I have a confession to make: I hate birthdays. Not because they’re bad or anything, but because they tend to highlight how much time has passed since my last one. And, while I am grateful for all of the good things in my life (and even if not every moment was great), there are definitely some things that need improvement. For example:

I will never be the same person as I was three years ago.

You will change over time, and that’s okay. You’ll learn new things and have different experiences and priorities. This doesn’t mean you’re any less of the person you used to be.

The point is: don’t take your birthday as an opportunity to relive everything from your childhood. It won’t work out for you in the long run because it’s not about being someone else anymore than it was about being yourself back then.

I’m constantly getting better at doing the things I care about.

You’re not going to be the best at everything. But you can still get better at things that matter to you, and that’s what matters!

If your goal is to become a better writer, then focus on improving your writing skills instead of comparing yourself with others who have published more books or written more articles than you. If your goal is to improve on something like learning how to run faster in an obstacle course (or whatever it is), then set goals for yourself: “I want my time running through this particular course by this date/time/event” – and then work towards those goals every day until they’re achieved!

The same goes for anything else that matters. Whether it’s health, relationships, or finances, there will always be things we want our lives to look like. So let’s make sure we’re working towards those visions every single day!

The best way to learn something is to try teaching it to someone else.

The best way to learn something is to try teaching it to someone else. You will be forced to simplify the topic. Explain it in a way that is easy-to-understand and remember. Most importantly—you’ll have an audience for your answers!

By being a teacher yourself, you can see how much easier this process becomes when compared with listening only from afar or reading about it online. When a friend asks if I know how they should do something in their life (like change jobs or start their own business), I am able to offer advice based on my own experiences as well as those of others who’ve done things differently before them. This makes for better advice than just talking about ideas without giving any context at all.*

Writing every day has made me much happier because it gives me a way to slow down and review my thoughts.

Writing every day has made me much happier. It gives me a way to slow down and review my thoughts.

I started writing more than five years ago, when I had just graduated from college with a degree in English literature. I thought that writing was going to be an easy hobby for me. But after struggling for months with a novel about two women who meet at their country house in the late 1800s and fall in love over the course of several summers together, I realized that it wasn’t going to be as simple as that.

I had never felt so frustrated by my own inability to communicate clearly. Since then, I have become better at expressing myself through words on paper (or screen).

Trying to learn everything at once is a recipe for stress and anxiety.

One of the biggest lessons I learned from birthdays is that trying to learn everything at once is a recipe for stress and anxiety. If you try to learn everything at once, you’ll feel overwhelmed and stressed out. You can’t learn everything at once, so it’s better to focus on one thing at a time.

It’s impossible to get really good at anything without spending a lot of time with it.

You can’t get really good at anything without spending a lot of time with it.

It’s impossible to learn how to do something quickly. You need to practice, practice, practice and be willing to make mistakes along the way.

The more you do something, the better you become at it. Your brain learns from what worked for you in the past and what didn’t work as well. So, if something doesn’t work out, try something else!

Thinking too much can keep you from getting started on anything new.

I learned that it’s important to get started on new things, even if you don’t know how they will turn out.

I also learned the importance of not worrying about what other people think. The only person who can make a difference in your life is yourself. No one else matters as much as yourself.

In addition, I learned that there is nothing wrong with failing at something. Failure teaches us valuable lessons that we can use later in life.

There are many small ways you can change your life if you just look for them.

Here are some of the things I learned:

  • Take advantage of small opportunities. Small changes can lead to big results. It’s important to remember that you have control over your life and your future. You don’t have to wait for big things like a promotion or a raise before making positive changes in your life; you can make those changes now!
  • Ask for help when you need it. There are times when we feel like nobody wants us around, so we just keep doing what makes us feel comfortable instead of reaching out for help from friends or family members who care about us (or even strangers!). But what happens then? Why not ask someone else for help? It might seem like nothing at first, but if there’s something bothering someone else right now—like maybe they’re tired of being tired all the time—they’ll probably say yes anyway because they know how important it is for their sanity as well as theirs too!

When starting something new, focusing on delivering value instead of growing your audience works best for most people.

As a new creator, it’s easy to get caught up in the idea of growing your audience and gaining more attention. But if you want to be successful, focus on delivering value instead of growing your audience.

Focus on the quality of your work, not its quantity. When you’re starting out and trying to build an audience from scratch. Most people will tell you that they want something new from you every week or month. They’ll keep coming back because they’re not getting enough original content from other sources (like me).

When I was working on my first book project with no budget and no writer friends who could help me out at all (I just did everything myself). This didn’t work for me personally. Because I found myself focusing more on getting all these different ideas down than actually writing them up into finished pieces—which meant that there wasn’t much time left over after each session before moving onto another topic altogether! The result? Nothing but dead ends everywhere else aside from my personal blog where nobody cared enough about what kind of “stuff” I had posted here anyway, so nothing gained traction anyway.”

When you become aware of how rare a moment is, it burns brightly in your memory forever.

When you become aware of how rare a moment is, it burns brightly in your memory forever.

You can’t do anything about the past, but you can change the future. The best way to make the most of your life is to focus on what you can do now, rather than dwell on regrets or longing for something that may never be yours again (or at least not in this lifetime).

Asking for help from people is usually more effective than trying to figure everything out yourself.

Asking for help is a sign of strength and not weakness. People will respect you more if you ask them for advice, rather than trying to figure everything out yourself. You’ll learn more by asking questions than by trying to figure things out on your own. Be sure to ask people what they think!

It’s important that we all have the skills necessary in our daily lives. For example, cooking, cleaning up after ourselves (or others), working hard at school or work. These are just some examples of useful life skills that can make our lives easier if we practice them regularly. But one skill many people don’t seem to be able to master is asking for help when we need it most. This skill should be one everyone learns as soon as possible. It helps us achieve success in life by making us stronger individuals who know how much power comes with being able to ask others around us for assistance when most needed.

You can save up a lot of money if you don’t spend as much on things like coffee or clothes each year.

I used to think that being thrifty was just a word that people used to make themselves look better, but it turns out there is a lot of value in saving your hard-earned cash.

For example: let’s say you are buying an expensive pair of shoes for $100 and then deciding not to wear them again because they were uncomfortable or didn’t fit well enough. If someone else buys the same pair from another store for $50 and wears them happily every day for years (or until they fall apart), wouldn’t that be better than having no shoes at all? It would also mean that when other people see how much we spent on our last party/brunch/trip/pool party/vacation trip…they’ll think twice about spending as much next time around!

You can have a great time at almost any event as long as your friends are there with you.

It’s true that the people you surround yourself with can make or break your life. If you want to be the best version of yourself, then it’s important that you have good friends. They’ll guide and inspire you along the way.

When I was younger, my family didn’t have many friends. We lived far away from town and weren’t able to make many connections outside of school and church. As such, my first birthday party was one of my favorite memories because it was so full of people who cared about me. It’s not just because they were there for me but also because they truly enjoyed being around each other! You don’t always need big parties or fancy presents in order to have a great time together. Sometimes simple things like sitting down at someone else’s house or having dinner together will do just fine (and often better). Even if someone doesn’t know everything about what makes us happy as individuals but still wants us around, knowing how much value we bring to their lives makes everything worthwhile!

When thinking about how much our lives depend upon others’ generosity towards us without fail I think back fondly on all those years where those same people gave back even more than just kindnesses during these special moments where everyone came together under one roof: parents buying ice cream cones after school hours had ended up lasting past midnight due their excitement over seeing everyone again after too long apart; grandparents showing up unexpectedly early so they could spend time talking before bedtime came calling…

If you stop and think about what you actually want, your life will be better for it

If you stop and think about what you actually want, your life will be better for it. When I was a child, my parents would buy me things that I didn’t really want. They wanted to make me happy so they bought something that they thought would make me happy. But in reality, it made no difference whether I had an expensive toy or not. None of them could satisfy my needs or desires as a child.

As an adult now, I realize that there are many things in life that are unnecessary. They don’t contribute anything positive towards our happiness. Things like spending money on unnecessary stuff like clothes or shoes when those same items could easily be purchased at thrift shops for much less than the cost of buying them new; eating out at restaurants when we could just cook ourselves dinner at home; etc… These days, though, these types of activities seem boring compared with spending time with friends over drinks or dinner parties where everyone gets along well together while laughing throughout dinnertime conversations (which often happen spontaneously).


I hope you found some of these things helpful, and I look forward to seeing how you apply them to your own life.
