The actress took to social media to share a message to her fans on her special day.

Alyssa Milano isn't just celebrating a birthday -- she's leveling up.

The actress took to X (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday to share a lengthy message with her fans and followers, and explained her outlook on life.

"Today is my birthday! However, instead of just saying my age, from now on I’m going to say that I have reached 'level 51,'" Milano wrote. "To unlock this level, I have discovered a few cheat codes that have helped me navigate the challenges and triumphs along the way."

"The first cheat code is RESILIENCE. I have faced my fair share of heartache, anxiety, and depression, but I have managed to overcome them with LOVE. Love for myself, which keeps me evolving and searching, love for others, which keeps me gentle and forgiving, and love for the world around me which keeps me in awe at what has been created here. It is through this love that I have found the strength to keep pushing forward," she continued. "Another cheat code that has been instrumental in reaching level 51 is GRATITUDE. I have learned to appreciate the simple joys of life, like the beauty of birds soaring through the sky and the majesty of trees standing tall."

"Gratitude has also allowed me to embrace the gift of curiosity, never ceasing to learn something new," she wrote, "Mostly, I am grateful for the beating of my heart, which carries the blood of my ancestors and connects me to a rich lineage of profound triumph."

Milano continued to list a few of the "cheat codes" that have helped her along, including "compassion and empathy."

"Although they can sometimes be uncomfortable emotions to experience, they have shaped me into a kind and humble person who strives to ease the suffering of humanity," she explained. "However, the most significant factor in reaching level 51 is the people in my life who love me unconditionally. Their support, care, and acceptance have been the driving force behind my personal growth. Today, my heart overflows with gratitude for their presence."

"So, as I celebrate my birthday at level 51, I do so with a sense of accomplishment and gratitude," she continued. "I embrace the challenges and joys that lie ahead, knowing that I have the cheat codes of resilience, gratitude, compassion, empathy, and the love of those around me to guide me through this game of life."

The celebratory post comes amid renewed interest in her longstanding feud and drama with her former Charmed co-star Shannen Doherty.

During a recent episode of the podcast Let's Be Clear With Shannen Doherty, the actress got candid about her on-set strife with Milano, and she spoke with their Charmed co-star Holly Marie Combs, who alleged that it was Milano who got Doherty fired from the show after three seasons.

According to Combs, as and Milano had a meeting with show producer Jonathan Levin, and said that the show was being forced to choose between Milano and Doherty due to a hostile workplace environment claim filed by Milano against Doherty.

"We were told [by Alyssa] that it's her or [Shannen], and Alyssa has threatened to sue us for a hostile workplace environment," Combs revealed on the podcast. She suggested that Milano allegedly documented every instance she felt uncomfortable on set.

Doherty's character, Prue Halliwell, was killed off in the season 3 finale in 2001, and she was later replaced by Rose McGowan's character, Paige.

Doherty, 52, shared her feelings of pain and confusion after being fired, stating that she spent a year replaying events in her mind to find moments of alleged bad behavior but couldn't find any. She expressed regret that she wasn't "older and wiser" at the time to handle the situation differently.

For her part, Milano has not weighed in or publicly commented on the latest claims leveled by Combs or Doherty.
