How do we view milestones, e.g. birthdays, anniversaries, etc … ?
A while back, I used to interpret my birthdays as aging and ‘the good times rolling away’. However, nowadays, I view major milestones differently … for the better, I would say. I now view them as a celebration, perhaps a celebration of life. Instead of thinking of about them in a negative light, I try to see birthdays as being given an additional opportunity to experience life and all the gifts that accompany it.
