This past weekend, I helped co-organize a private painting party at the Studio 614 for my cousin’s birthday. With all the craziness going on in the world, it’s nice to celebrate moments like these with people you love. And for this awesome human being, we decided to do something special for her.
If you don’t know, birthdays are by far my favorite. When I was growing up, my mother always planned and executed the best birthday parties. As a kid, my birthday was the best holiday of the year and it still is. My Mom always had my parties decorated, themed, and loaded with games and tons of prizes.
Even till this day, I have grade school friends who have told me that attending my birthdays were some of their favorite childhood memories. Not because of me, but because of the thought my Mom put into planning. The excitement of blowing out candles, opening presents and seeing all my friends gave me the best feelings in the world.
For some reason, life hit some of us too hard (maybe it was the premature grays). As I got older, I’ve noticed that some people think birthdays should have less significance in our lives. Not everyone is guaranteed another year, and yet we still did that shit. You deserve to celebrate that. Birthdays should always be a big deal; no matter how old you get.
