Thoughts on birthdays: A candid approach to a birthday

Yes, I am a Virgo lady turning 29 this month, and I am not impressed in the slightest. My peers are having fun going here, there and everywhere. Dinners, a steady 9 to 5 and what seems to be a solid social circle. I am here and not going everywhere, fighting sleep at midnight, mustering inspiration and motivation to finish my manuscripts, blog posts and creating avenues for entrepreneurial income. Contrary to popular beliefs, my birthdays are usually the last priority on my mind since I entered adulthood. I used to judge myself for being indifferent towards my ‘big day,’ but the more I elevate my mindset and expand my consciousness, the more I realise that it is indeed just a day. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones and creating memories; however, it’s not the end all be all. Besides, I don’t need to celebrate that I am literally one year older and wiser. I mean, wiser, really? Perhaps. I have indeed learned a lot about myself, and I am proud of my growth and ability to adhere to healthy boundaries. I am proud that I have managed to weed out the rotten branches and habits that no longer serve my highest purpose, and as much as I may want to shrug off responsibilities to navigate slightly off course, I know that the lesson will be tougher to learn when I do.

Ignorance is no longer bliss during self-expansion, and I am okay with putting in the work now to enjoy the fruits of my labour in the future. Some will label me a hermit, and that is true. Virgos are the ultimate hermits because we just cannot be bothered with drama and disappointments. Surely one should know that only a Virgo can meet and exceed a Virgo’s expectations. (Yes, I am trying to be funny with a pinch of truth.) On a serious note, if you find yourself going through similar emotions and experiencing a bit of turbulence, note that you are not alone, and you have every right to want to preserve your energy. Take some time and go inside yourself to understand yourself. We are human, and it’s okay to break down, mould and rebuild. At the time of my birthday I will be taking some time to reflect and make plans for my solar year’s manifestation. To me, this is just as important as eating cake and being merry. It’s my personal year and I absolutely want to meet my highest achievements. On a lighter note, I send ever-ending gratitude to all who continue to support me and my work.

Until next time.
