Birthdays in the Faery Lifestyle

For today’s post, I have decided to do a post about my way of living the Faery Lifestyle, as I call it.   Today is my birthday and also one of my favorite days of the entire year!   I know that many people, especially once they are adults begin to hate their birthday, as they are yet another year older.

For me, my birthday is about celebrating my life and my accomplishments over the last year.   I do not feel old in any way, so it feels like a time to celebrate what has occurred and what I plan on for the next twelve months.   It is a time to be proud of what has gone right and to learn from my failures.

As I have always felt more like a Faery than a human, I do not view aging as a bad thing.   I feel like I do not age physically very much year to year, as I have always had a youthful and ageless appearance, given many people are shocked to learn my age (plus I take care of myself well).   I do not feel that I have aged mentally or emotionally in a negative way.   I feel aging in a mental and emotional realm is how we grow into better versions of ourselves, learning from our mistakes and planning better ways to adapt to the changing tides of life!

Looking at aging in this ageless immortal Faery way allows us to become more centered on what matters most.   What truly matters is our evolution over time.   This allows me to truly celebrate and love this important time of year.   It is the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I can feel proud of how my life is going at this time.   I know that I am working towards achieving long-term goals and I also know that I am succeeding in things like my writing, as I am getting a lot of positive feedback here on White Rose of Avalon!   While my life is not exactly how I would have dreamed it up years ago, it is in a better place than I could have imagined a few months ago.   My work here is a large part of my feeling of being in a better place than I could have been.   Starting this blog over a year ago was one of the best decisions I could have made, as it is something that has become an incredible outlet for my creativity and my voice!

I hope you have enjoyed this evaluation of how I enjoy my birthday as an adult by embracing my attitude toward Living the Faery Life!   It is an important way I have begun to empower myself and am happy that I am able to share it here with my readers on my birthday.   Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
