Still At It…

Consistency. Persistence. I have conversations with my “co-defendant” MP about these subjects at least once a week. What I’m most consistent with these days besides being “weirdo” has to be my need to spill my guts into my journal on a daily basis. I don’t know how my brain functions but it’s more chaos than order inside of my head and it always has been. Sometimes I feel like it’s ADHD or some other mental glitch that allows me function much differently from my peers. Maybe that in itself is just a byproduct of overthinking or not thinking enough. I’ve always had questions about everything and it was unfortunate that I let self doubt dictate many of my missteps along the way but that’s no longer a burden of mine. Thankfully.

Last week or so, after hanging out with my talented, younger cousin, I did a bit of exploration into numerology and I found that my life path number is 7. Here’s a bit of information about the magic digit:

Sevens have an air of mystery and do not want you to know who they are. Intellectual, analytical, intuitive, reserved, natural inclination towards spiritual subjects, aloof, loner, pessimistic, secretive, and insecure; are some of the qualities of those born into the Seventh Life path. A person who is a Life Path 7 is a thinker. If your Life Path is a 7 you are wise and studious. You seek truth and wisdom in all that you do, and search for the underlying answers in everything. Your tendency is to be a perfectionist, and you expect the same from those around you. Source

This is me, down to the not so attractive attributes. I’ve been on a journey of thought and it’s always a shocker to myself seeing where I’ll end up or what fascinates me. The number seven has meaning in all cultures and religions: 7 Lucky Gods in Japanese mythology, Seven continents, seven islands of Atlantis, Seven wonders of the world, Seven Chakras, Seven Sages in Legend Of Zelda’s Ocarina of Time (NERD!), Seven Deadly Sins, and allegedly it was also the “God Number” in Ancient Egypt. The God Number… I love how that sounds. All of this information affected me so greatly that last Friday, an hour after I left work, I went to my neighborhood tattoo shop and got VII (seven in roman numerals for the geniuses) on my right forearm. You can now add Se7en God to my list of aliases. I’m searching like Roy Ayers and I’m open to whatever the universe wants me to discover. Peace! BTW…. wait till you see the next tattoo…
