28 Birthday Captions For Yourself That'll Make Your 'Gram Radiate With Good Vibes

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. They may put up signs in your apartment's kitchen that say, "Cheers to you," and "Cake, please," and wake you up in the morning with a cupcake that has a candle in it. It also means that you might get a free drink at the coffee shop down the road, and are required to post a selfie on social media. Did you know that? If not, then you definitely need some birthday captions for yourself that'll make your 'Gram 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, personally, I really love putting a selfie on Instagram on my birthday because I feel like it marks the start of something new. It shows how much I've grown in the past year, and serves as a reminder to myself of what I'm choosing to focus on now — affirmations I 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 edit it with some of the best editing apps of the year. Last but not least, it's time to pick out one of these 28 birthday captions for yourself that'll spread your good vibes and girl power. Ready, set, go!
