Turning the Big 16…?

birthdayI don’t know about you, but I have found many birthdays are labeled “big”. People always ask me “So, how does it feel to be (insert new age)”, and my answer is always the same: well, it felt a little bit like yesterday, and the day before. That might be a little cynical, but there you have it.

And what makes a particular¬†birthday better, or more important, than another one? Is it the fact that it has a zero on the end, or is it because you can now do something different than you could before? Don’t get me wrong, I love birthdays, but what I don’t get is that some people expect a big change on the day. I find that changes occur throughout the year to change how we view things¬† and further our understanding.

So how do you view it? Do you think it’s the day that makes a difference? Do you feel different?
