The Simple Things For a birthday

Cartoon of a guy with a balloon. A woman says, "If I knew that’s all it took to give you a happy birthday, I wouldn’t have ordered the mariachi band.”

It’s the simple things that make a birthday the best. Whether it’s a balloon, cake or noisemakers, it doesn’t take much to get a celebration going. It’s the little, frivolous things that make a celebration fun.

Some may argue it’s the expensive gifts that make a birthday. But I disagree. If someone is obsessed about an expensive gift and they receive it, they soon discover the thrill is temporary and they turn their attentions to other pricey toys.

No, it’s the simple things that make a birthday the best, because it is our mindset that either finds joy or constantly searches for the next, big thing.

So today is my birthday. I will set my focus on the simple pleasures. No Lamborghini or Tesla for me, please.
