Birthdays are very special days around the world. It marks the beginning of a new life, year, a change in your parents’ lives, and is significant to many, in other ways. Birthdays are a day where others come and celebrate your life. However, what many of us often fail to do, is celebrate our own lives.
It is very important that we are as kind to ourselves as we are as kind to others. We must give ourselves love on our birthdays and not just solely be dependent on love from others.
This is an article that shows you one of the ways you can celebrate your birthdays. This celebration can be done through a birthday speech for yourself. To answer your doubt “What should a birthday speech for myself look like”, here is an example of a birthday speech a person has written for themself.
A Birthday Speech for myself
Thank you everyone for showing up and making this day wonderful. I must be really lucky to have so many amazing people in my life.
As I stand here wondering how to express my gratitude, I can feel my heart thumping loudly. It has been one of the best birthdays ever. I should thank each one of you for putting in the effort to make this day special. But here’s what I’m going to do instead. I’m going to share with you one of my best-kept secrets.
I’m a philosopher by heart. I know. I know. That’s not something you expected. But, hear me out.
I’ve turned 27 today and in these years of experiences, I have come to realize that there’s more to life than just having fun and going on new adventures. While it’s cool to have fun and adventure, there’s something way cooler than that.
Do you know what it is? It’s called mindfulness.
Birthdays can serve as a reminder of how you have been living your life. In essence, it acts as a mirror showing how you have lived your life so that you can see what changes you need to make and make them when the time is right.
As my birthday gift, I just want one thing from you – a promise. Please promise me that you will live your life more meaningfully. There is nothing as precious as this.
I would like to thank you once again for all your birthday wishes. I’m humbled by the fact that you had the patience to hear my speech. Thank you!
Birthday letter to self
A “birthday speech” is quite like writing a letter to yourself. Everyone must try writing a speech for themselves, and when you do, you must pour your heart out, acknowledge the good and the bad that has happened, and create promises to yourself that you can fulfill.
Here’s a letter as a birthday speech to self. You can use it to wish yourself Happy Birthday. Trust me. It really feels good.
Happy birthday. Its been 23 years since you have been born into this world. This world, full of sunshine, joy, and love. Of course there are also viles in the world but I am so happy you have lived through it all. You are strong and brave, you are kind and powerful. I cannot thank you enough for taking care of yourself and for standing strong today.
Today, I want you to celebrate yourself. I want you to appreciate all that God has given you, all your parents have given you, and all of the things you have made possible for yourself. Without the grit in you, you would have never made it so far in life.
I want you to be kind to yourself, and love yourself a little more every day. I want you to take care of yourself just as you take care of others. I want you to vow that you will start prioritizing yourself more often.
When I think about the life I have had, I am so grateful to be in the place I am today. When I see others around me who are suffering through physical and mental pain, I want to appreciate you even more for staying true and honest to yourself and not slipping through cracks by getting involved with people or deeds that are not good for yourself.
I want to thank you for taking care of yourself throughout these 23 years and I really hope that you continually make an effort to keep this life as beautiful as it has been. All the best for this coming year. Don’t forget,
YOU ARE INCREDIBLE
