either that or we do not take every day seriously enough.
I feel like everyone should celebrate unbirthdays a few days out of every year (depends on how many you want to do)! I think setting aside an evening to exchange small gifts, cook dinner together, and watch a movie or have friends over is a wonderful way to celebrate life and the gifts it brings. So the next time someone asks you to do something and you think "Oh, I don't have time" you should pause and think, this person wants to celebrate an unbirthday and I am special enough to be invited! You will not always be able to go, but it will put things into perspective and turn a lot of "Oh, I wish I had done that"s into "I'm so glad we got to do that together"s.
If you want to go all out, you could even have an unbirthday party and invite lots of people and have a silly gift exchange and go all out (maybe even Alice in Wonderland costumes would be fun if you are a costume party person)! You might make some dear friends and have unforgettable memories.
And for those of you who have no idea where I got this idea:
What About You? What do you think about celebrating unbirthdays? How would you celebrate your ideal unbirthday?
