Quarantine Birthday

Dear Diary,

April 20, 2020, is a birthday I’ll never forget. I usually would have a birthday dinner, travel, or go to a party to celebrate my birthday each year. This year I was unable to do any of those things due to COVID-19. I spent this birthday alone. As sad as it sounds, I know I had to be positive about the situation. Even though it wasn’t my ideal way of celebrating my birthday, I still had to be grateful for reaching another year of life. I’m trying to fully appreciate life right now because it’s a blessing to wake up healthy each day.
