Some people like to celebrate their birthday alone. Others like to make a big birthday splash and invite friends for a grand birthday celebration. Most people, however, have a small celebration in the company of their near and dear ones.

If you are the kind of person who enjoys being with friends and family, but cannot celebrate your birthday with them this year, do not feel depressed. Many people end up in such a situation, especially those who work in far off places.

You can still make your birthday special, with a little change.

Is there a hobby that you have always wanted to pursue? Now is a good time to enroll for your hobby class. Take up an activity that you never undertook before. Perhaps you can learn ballroom dancing. Or you can join a yoga class. Take up an activity that involves other people, and you will not feel so lonely on your birthday.

Visit a luxury spa, or a salon, and pamper yourself. Treat yourself to some exotic massages and do not feel guilty about spending money on yourself. You deserve the special treatment; go ahead and indulge.

If you are in a benevolent mood, visit a local orphanage and donate generously. If you have the time, spend some time with the needy. You will feel an immense sense of satisfaction and spiritual fulfillment. Read this list of best wishes for inspirational birthday ideas. Spend time reflecting on your life and how you would like to improve it.

Make this birthday a day of reckoning and self-actualization.
