It’s my birthday month, and who says it has to completely suck because there is this pandemic thing going on. I decided I’m celebrating every day this month by doing something fun or taking care of myself in some small way!
I know it’s already the 6th, but the first few are pretty easy if you want to catch up and join me. It may not be your birthday month, but maybe it will make this month more interesting.
And, by all means, create your own month of happiness for your birthday month. You deserve it!
