Ways to Make 26th Birthday Special
1Create a vision board
You need not be a long term plan for creating a vision board. You just have to know what all you need and you need to dream so that you can achieve in creating a good vision board. You can always put on all your creative crazy ideas on a paper rather than just forgetting it on the go. You will eventually not remember what you wanted to do if you don’t have it in writing.
Well, your eyes believe what you see. So, when you see something that represents what you want for your future, you will start marching towards it. The thing is that, if you believe in something, it is not going to automatically happen. You need to prove to yourself that you want these dreams of yours to happen in real life. That is why the vision board is one of the most important ways of telling you how important your vision is in life.
2Do something that you have put off for too long
There would be something in your life that you have always wanted to do buy haven’t done due to the silliest reason. Maybe, you wanted to bungee jump, but you are scared of heights, maybe you wanted to record a song but, you had no time. You need to plan something offbeat and prioritize that first in the list of to-do. It’s your day and birthdays are supposed to be used to explore the unexplored areas. You need to make yourself feel important and do something just for yourself.

It needn’t have to be only pet, it could also be a plant, a tree or even sponsor a child’s education. See, good deeds are done when you are strong enough mentally, physically and financially. By 26, you are definitely strong financially. You would at least be learning a good amount of money from your career. Try to put that to use sometimes.
Birthdays are the best days to adopt something and be selfless in life. If you are good with puppies, adopt a puppy and take it home. Gift yourself a child’s bright future and just enjoy the feeling of ownership and leadership. Or, just sow some seeds and watch the plants grow. Anything that you do apart from thinking about yourself or buying yourself fancy shoes or bag, is definitely worthwhile and birthday mandate.

You cannot thank mom and dad, for they have given you everything that you own now. But, you can be thankful to your teachers, your fellow mates, your school friends, your van driver, your college principal, your boyfriend’s or ex boyfriends.
Anyone and everyone who has taught you about life in a good or bad way, can be on the thank you list. Think of them on your birthday and raise above.
