I think I have been official cursed when it comes to birthdays. Every year as my birthday approaches I start getting excited think of all the “special” things I will get to do on that day. I start planning and anticipating a day full of fun, laughter and great memories.
But I often find that my birthdays seem to be some of the most stressful and unhappy days of the year. I wonder, do I set my self up to fail? Do I put too much anticaption on that one day? Or should I simply just look at my birthday as another day were you get to eat cake?
When I look back over my life, I remember lots of birthdays where something goes bad, such as arguments, disappointments, even car accidents! Yep, that’s right, got in a car accident at the zoo trying to have a “special” day.
So am I alone in this experience? Does anyone else have birthdays that always seem to go bad? And if you are that person that is always having good birthdays, please be so kind to share your secret with me!
