Music superstar Adele turned 31 on Monday and her birthday gift to herself should serve as an inspiration to us all.


In post on Instagram, the singer relished making into her 4th decade and she could not be more optimistic about the future.

"This is 31...thank f***ing god," the caption read. "30 tried me so hard but I'm owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all."

Life isn't easy for anyone, even the rich and famous.

"No matter how long we're here for life is constant and complicated at times," she wrote. "I've changed drastically in the last couple years and I'm still changing and that's okay."

Being in your 30's is awesome, and Adele plans on reconnecting with what's most important - herself.

"31 is going to be a big ol' year and I'm going to spend it all on myself," she said. "For the first time in a decade I'm ready to feel the world around me and look up for once."

Self-care is truly undervalued in our non-stop, hyper-stressful culture. But in the end, Adele stressed that we are responsible for our own happiness and fulfillment.

"Be kind to yourself people we're only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity," she advised. "Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I've only just realized that that is more than enough.

"I'll learn to love you lot eventually 😂," she joked. "Bunch of f*cking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you.
Chin up eh ❤️."

This is the wholesome, positive content we need right now.

The birthday wishes flooded Twitter.





Happy birthday Adele.

It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
