Battling birthday blues, how do you cope?

So I have a birthday coming up this month, which means I will probably go through a period of “woe is me” my life isn’t where I want it to be yet.  I always treat birthdays like some kind of weird deadline that I somehow missed.  As if I have gone an entire year accomplishing nothing.  I know it’s completely ridiculous, but in my head, that’s how I perceive it sometimes.

Thankfully I have wonderful friends and family that always make a big deal of my birthday.  Even when I try to avoid everyone and pretend the birthday isn’t happening. They don’t let me wallow in self-pity for long.

It sounds so silly, but I admit that being single (with no real prospects) on my birthday is far worse then rolling solo any other time of the year.  Believe it or not, I handle the holidays without lamenting about my singlehood. I relish in it, even; but when my birthday approaches I almost have to fight off a case of the birthday blues .

Does being single during your birthday ever bother you?  Do you have moments when you wish that you had someone special in your life? Does it happen randomly or during a special time? How do you handle it?

What is the best way to celebrate your birthday when you are single and ready to mingle?

What is your most memorable birthday? I would love to hear about it!

Professor – At one point I started regretting that I tuned in especially when she was smiling doing all of those interviews and demos.

I didn’t see the special, but that’s sad. I do agree that some folks have a mean/cruel way about them and others just think keeping children breathing is successful parenting.

Pipeline is the place or database where we house prospects hoping for prospect turned clients. If nothing comes about, then we clear those out and clean the pipeline.

If you’re talking about the ballplayer, girl he done struck out. I mean it was never a no go for me but as far as any respect, none whatsoever. I will do the needful and get along but that’s about I can muster up. LOL

Sadly, I think many parents view their children as obstuctions to the life they used to live, and therefore resent them. Even if they never actually verbalize this, their interactions with the children say it all. Kids are basically growing up feeling unwanted. Mine will never have to worry about that. They’re a joy in my life, and I thank the Creator daily for deeming me worthy of such a blessing.

It is not as significant to have a good life, but rather to do good things with your life.

Good night!
