Can you give me ideas for my speech on my 25th birthday?

Keep the focus on family and friends. Especially acknowledge family members, without leaving anyone out (even if you don't mean it!). Keep your speech short but memorable. Maybe talk about what was happening in the world the year you were born (current events, new inventions, popular music at the time) and relate this to how things have changed in a quarter of a century. Be sure to enjoy yourself, that way it helps you to be not so nervous. Only use humour if you are well practiced with public speaking. Don't feel like you have to be funny. Good luck.
How do you feel about turning 25? Are you starting to feel a little older, more responsible? Are you shifting gears and focusing on things you didn't often think of when you were younger? Or is it just another year? Figure out how you feel about turning 25 and what it means to you and the people around you. Let the tone of the event set the tone of your speech. If it's a party with mostly friends, think about something lighthearted. If you have a more serious evening with grandparents and work associates, then share more serious thoughts.
