“Birthdays”, one of the most special and looked forward-to days of our life. The shower of gifts,blessings and calls from our loved ones makes us feel cherished and special on that particular day. In today’s world, it is the number of wishes one receives on Facebook and the number of people who devote their status on Whatsapp to your special day, that determine an individual’s contentment. Birthdays are a celebration for your existence in this universe, a party for surviving yet another successful year on the planet. But is it really significant? Does your presence make any difference for the ones around you? Is it that you exist only as a body with flesh and bones which makes no mere transfiguration in the world? Are you born only as a body or has your soul taken birth yet?
A person, without his own soul and character has no meaning. He isn’t born until the human within him comes to life. The day he realizes his own potential, his talents and capabilities and strives to make a difference in his and other’s lives is the day he takes birth. Birthday is the day we simply come into the world, but when you start living and discover yourself is the day when you really take birth. It is this day that marks your journey towards greatness and unearths your flair. It is this day that distinguishes you from the crowd of people walking aimlessly towards an unknown goal. And the best part of your birthday? You feel the change within you. It is not just physical growth, it is the growth of your mind, your ideas, your personality, your sight to look at situations. It is the growth of your thoughts. When your thoughts grow, you immediately experience the change and the development you undergo. It is this day that needs to be celebrated. It is this day that needs to be remembered and rejoiced. It is this day that you take birth..take birth as an individual. It is not everyone who is fortunate to celebrate their birthday. It is not everybody who is able to discover themselves. A few, a few who thrive hard to search their inner selves and work relentlessly to keep their hold on it celebrate this glory of new life. Others..well, they die even before they can take birth, before they find themselves. But once you find it, treasure that moment, for not everybody is lucky as you are. A person who gets the opportunity of celebrating this birthday, lives his life as a festival, each day filled with happiness and excitement. What more do you need in the world when you have found yourself? Find yourself and the universe will celebrate your birthday.
