Maybe it sounds selfish, but I think my birthday may be my favorite holiday. I love getting sweet messages from my amazing friends and family. I love the suspense before the party. I love choosing a special outfit for the day. I love eating my favorite food and getting special gifts. I love having my shining moment. I love feeling blessed and feeling special. I love taking time to look back on my year and to make goals for the upcoming year.
I love the feelings of excitement and nostalgia that come my way. I love looking back on my favorite memories. There is a bit of pain in looking back, and seeing how much I've grown. But it's good. Now I know why Peter Pan didn't want to grow up. But also know why Wendy needed to grow up.
So here you are - songs about growing up, getting older, feeling nostalgic, missing childhood, and celebrating life, in honor of my 15th birthday.
