Yesterday wasn’t the only holiday to be celebrated. I have hit the big 50, in posts that is. Umm hmm, yes I did and I do believe a celebration is in order. Fifty…50…The Big 5 0… Fiddy…Five-O… and L (This is the Roman Numeral for 50, for those number impaired folks like myself.) It doesn’t matter how you say it, it’s grand in its own right.
I celebrated by taking a trip all the way back to my first post to check out where I was and how far I’ve come. Just as I was getting the balloons & confetti, I realized that my first, Uno or #1 post was published on 3/4/2012, which just happens to be 4 months to the day of #50…hmm, that’s interesting. The plot thickens…
I dug a little further only to notice something else that peaked my interest. Now, brace yourselves, the only person to “like” my first post was…DRUM ROLL PLEASE….Miss Four Eyes! Let me just say …. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa that’s freaking spooky! Can you say…goosebumps?
What does this all mean? Should I be looking for a secret message in all these 4’s? Is this a coincidence or is it something more? My curious nature demands answers, so I went to my best source, the keeper of secrets…yes, the Yoda of the cyber world…GOOGLE. Within seconds I found some answers that were interesting to say the least. In the pre-Google world this investigation would have taken days.
People under the influence of the 4 need to find ways to express their knowledge and wisdom.
Four: The symbolic meaning of number Four deals with stability and invokes the grounded nature of all things. Consider the four seasons, four directions, four elements all these amazingly powerful essences wrapped up in the nice square package of Four. Fours represent solidity, calmness, and home. A recurrence of Four in your life may signify the need to get back to your roots, center yourself, or even “plant” yourself. Fours also indicate a need for persistence and endurance.
Considering all the changes I’ve experienced over the past 4 months, I would have to conclude that this is not a coincidence….it’s a message that has been recognized. I’m having a moment here people.
Let’s narrow this down shall we. Expression of knowledge and wisdom would certainly represent the birth of Life With The Top Down, which just happens to also be chock full of work and productivity. The references to seasons, direction and elements certainly resonates with the metamorphosis, not just within myself, but within my family. Everyone is growing all at once.
Planting roots, looking for roots, finding or planting myself all add up to something fairly new in my life…Enjoying the Ride!
