So you are asking about "personal transformation?" Good, that is good.

Birthdays & Celebrations: What Do They Really Mean?
The best ideal is about when you are four or five and you are blessed enough to be given a party and you just want all the cake and candy you can get, even if it is not necessarily the highest. But the sense of glee and joy of embracing the experience fully is what is so important. So even on a day when it is the anniversary of your incarnation, and let us say you have a stressful, difficult day or a very confronting day, what you say with that is "oh, I am aware I have these dark feelings. I bless them now. I bless my self that I can feel them and I dedicate them to being uplifted now to my highest good and to the highest good of all who can feel these feelings." You see?
