Happy Birthday……But Should I Really Celebrate?

This past weekend I celebrated my 30th birthday. My wife and I arranged a BBQ at my home for our friends and it was a great time. I love an excuse to get together with family and friends and enjoy each others company. After all, life really is about relationships isn’t it?

Having this birthday and gathering put me into a bit of a reflective mood. It made me realize something.

We celebrate birthdays like they are an accomplishment, but are they?
