Today is a very special day for Britney Spears fans! The pop icon turns 30 in the midst of her “Femme Fatale” tour. She has endured a lifetime in the public eye that included many highs and lows. The talk of her birthday was all over Twitter as fans, celebrities, and more were wishing Spears a Happy Birthday. The reason a day like this is so special is an essential look into a life lesson we should all live by. When you look at the lives of people like Judy Garland and Michael Jackson, you see incredible talent, but lives destroyed by wounds caused because of their fame. Britney Spears was also a child star who dealt with struggles. However, she has seemingly come out of it on the other side. She was at a point not that long ago where people doubted she would make it to 27. Now, she’s turning 30 and we’re all celebrating. When a day like this comes along, you realize how nice it feels to celebrate someone while they’re still here. It’s something we all should do. We shouldn’t wait till a legend dies to go on Twitter and say how much they influenced us. Today, people all around the world are going on Twitter to profess their admiration for Britney and she is alive to see it. That is the best part about today.

Remember to show appreciation for those in your life while they’re still here. Treat every day as if it’s your last. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
