We all have that one special day each year when we get to celebrate it with delicious food together with the people we love and who loves us in return – our birthday.
Most of the years, we celebrate it with cake on the table, balloons on the wall, delicious food cooked by your Mom, together with familiar faces surrounding us.
But then, this year’s special! We are turning 24 years old and we are actually feeling
old responsible already with many things in life.
And though those might be really fun and one of the happiest moments of our lives, here are our top 5 fun ways that you can celebrate your birthday — be it with your family and friends or even if it is just you alone on your 24th birthday.
1. Themed Birthday Party
It’s your birthday! If you have the means of doing a themed birthday party, why not? How about a themed beach party? Or a 1950’s party with vinyl records playing on the jukebox?
You can also try a beach party on a secluded island, or a happy pajama party in your favorite hotel! This will be incredibly happier and more exciting!
If you were to have your themed birthday celebration, what would that be?
2. Get that bucket list and cross that one extremely fun item
A bucket list is a list of the things that you want to do or try in life that will make you feel happy. So now, for your birthday, why not try to get that old notebook listed with your bucket list, wipe the dust off, and check that one extremely fun item that you want to tick-off the list!
Maybe that “Bungee Jumping” thing? Or how about trying to ride on a camel? Or what about traveling solo? Have thought of traveling abroad? Whatever that is, go ahead, and tick that off!
3. Why not try staycation?
Most of our birthday celebrations are all held at home.
We’re sure that would be the best!
If you’re residing here in the Philippines, you may try the cozy Cafe Lupe Hostel in Antipolo, the elegant Best Western Hotel Subic , the out-of-the-country vibe of Torre Venezia Suites Timog or my most favorite hotel up in north, Azalea Residences Baguio.
4. Pamper yourself
Alright, alright dear.
So you want to be alone. You want to spend your day all by yourself. Why not try to pamper yourself? Go ahead to that salon in town, get your hair done, your nails painted, and why not try treating yourself with spa as well.
Giving that birthday gift to yourself will definitely boost your confidence!
5. Go to a Theme Park
Okay. So you have never tried any zipline ride or even tried to walk on a hanging bridge. This year, on your special day, why not try going to a theme park with these kind of adventure? Or how about going to a mini paradise with all the animals and nature?
Go to a theme park with your family and friends and experience fun and amazing way to celebrate your birthday.
One quick tip: Write/Revisit your goals
Revisit the goals that you have written before. Or if you haven’t written any, now is your chance to think about your future plans. Get a notebook, write what you want to do for the next 5 years.
You are now on your 24th year and one year more, you will be now on your quarter life as they say. Let us try to revisit or rewrite our goals. By this, we can check things that we have already done and things we have to start doing. This can definitely help you to be more motivated to do more in life.
Congratulations on your 24th year!
I’m praying for strength and wisdom for your life and happy birthday!
