Isn’t that one of the most inspiring Birthday Quotes ever? Doesn’t it also bring back fond memories?
Remember that feeling you got as a kid the day before your birthday; counting down the hours until finally, your big day came. Everyone was nice to you, they gave you presents with hand written greetings, left you thoughtful messages; and if you were lucky, you got to decide where to have your birthday party (lazer tag!). The spotlight was on just you for a full 24 hours, and it was awesome.
Then somewhere along the lines, your birthday became less about fun and more about trying not to cry all over your birthday cake. You feel older (and not necessarily wiser), and can’t help looking back at the things you just can’t do anymore like lazer tag. It sounds depressing because, well, it is.
But it doesn’t have to be. You just need some cheering up.
If you’re sitting there struggling to think of something clever, or you’re looking for some birthday wishes to cheer you up, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re sending an e-mail, text, signing a birthday card, or leaving a voicemail, this collection is filled with as many ways to say happy birthday as possible.
