Do you look forward to your birthday every year?

I have to admit that I personally, I no longer look forward to celebrating my birthdays. This year I am going to be turning 27 years old. I'm actually kind of depressed to tell you the truth. I feel like time is speeding by way too fast for my liking. It is like no matter what I do, time just keeps speeding by to fast. It seems like just yesterday I had my two daughters and already this year, they will be three and four years old. What about you? How do you feel about your birthdays? Do you still like celebrating them? And lastly, if your brave enough to anwser, how old will you be turning on your next birthday? Come on be brave, I told you how old I am,LOL.

Well, yes, I expect it to come. But, the only thing that I dread is getting older every year. I do love celebrating my Birthday, but no one really takes the time to celebrate with me. I would love to have a party. I will be 31 this August.

Every time my birthdays come, I would be excited but not anymore. Birthday's come and go and everything turn to normal again. Sometimes I even forgot my birthday. My mother would remind me about it. I noticed that people are no longer celebrating their birthdays now days.

Hi! I know what you mean. I haven't been very excited about my birthdays the past couple of years either. Time just seems to go by too quickly. For example, I have been at my job for over a year now but it only feels like I've been here a few months. I don't think I've really celebrated my birthdays since I was around 17 or so. This year, I'm going to be turning 26 and I really feel like I'm getting older way too fast. I haven't done nearly everything I would have liked by the time I reached that age. Well, here's to a productive year for both of us!

I will only be turning 17 this summer, but I can still relate. I remember when bithdays were SUCH a big deal and you would have a big party with family and friends. Recently, I've just stopped caring so much and haven't really been celebrating. I still go out to eat and have cake, ice cream, and presents with my family but thats about it. I'll just go somewhere a couple close frineds and I'm good. I think that only the milestone birthday's are really important. Like when I turn 18 and can vote and be a legal adult :)
