Word on the street is that it's your birthday, which typically means a few things. First, it means that your best friends might fill your room with balloons and confetti. Your partner may put up signs in your kitchen that say, "Cheers to you," and "Cake, please," and wake you up with a cupcake that has a candle in it. You could also end up getting a free drink at the coffee shop down the road. One of the most likely things to happen, though: You'll post a picture of yourself on Instagram. For those posts, you definitely need some birthday captions for yourself that'll radiate with good vibes.
Technically, you don't have to post a selfie on social media. Your accounts and your feeds are entirely what you want them to be and what you make of them. But you might love putting a #lit selfie on Instagram on your birthday, because it marks the start of something new. It may show how much you’ve grown in the past year, and serve as a reminder to yourself of what you’re choosing to focus on now — affirmations you want to keep in mind and manifest daily, or simple goals like, "Celebrate everything."
Are you with me? If so, then it's time to start preparing your post. It's time to find a picture in your camera roll where you're truly glowing, or take one in the spirit of making way for all the new. Then it's time to pick out one of these 28 birthday captions for yourself that'll spread the good vibes on your ‘gram.
