Friday the 13th turned out to be a good day for me.
Of course that’s not unusual since 13 is one of my lucky numbers. But it was unexpected considering the week I’ve just experienced – more about that later.
I read an interesting article about Friday the 13th this week over at 7witchescoven.com.
Here is an excerpt:
Twelve is a number considered complete by many cultures. Twelve Months. Twelve Gods of Olympus. Twelve Zodiac Signs (Both Eastern and Western Zodiacs). Twelve Sons of Odin. Twelve Labors of Hercules. Twelve Jyotirlingas (Hindu Shrines) where Shiva is worshipped. Twelve successors of Muhammad in Shia Islam. Twelve Tribes of Israel.
According to my personal logic, if 12 is the number of completion, then it stands to reason that 13 is the number of starting over, new beginnings or new projects.
Let’s face it, no one stays in a state of perfection or completion for very long periods of time. We must always accept the challenge to continue the cycle and begin again.
Last week I found out I have Multiple Myeloma. A full week later, on Friday the 13th, I found a local Hematologist / Oncologist and I have an appointment on Monday! This was especially good because no one seemed to know what I should do next and I was just floundering around waiting on some kind of instructions. That’s not a good thing.
Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands which is what I did.
Now I have embarked on a new chapter in my life.
