Recently it was my birthday! Beautiful gifts and lovely opportunities for coffee dates and lunches out to, well, celebrate me! Yes the celebrations may well have extended out beyond the day. 

It’s not often that we get a day, well obviously apart from our once a year birthday to celebrate ourselves! But when it is not our birthday how do we actually treat ourselves? Too often we can get caught up focussing on our faults, our less thans, our failings. We can be more aware of our weaknesses and imperfections than our strengths and beauty. 

And while I’m not advocating celebrating ourselves with cake everyday, I am suggesting that we be a little more kind to ourselves! Make that self-talk like you’re talking to a friend…one who happens to be celebrating their birthday.

“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!” (Dr Seuss)

P.S. That’s how God see you! He’s celebrating you everyday!
