Magic number 7
I believe in the cycle of life. That there is a period of time before a thing starts over. Seven digits in a local phone number. 7 months of life before a tree hibernates through the winter. A 7 year itch. God created the earth in 7 days. 7 habits of highly successful people, and so on.
I am reminded of the movie “Seven Pounds” starring Will Smith. How his character, Ben, would change the lives of 7 people. How beautiful, how reassuring it would be if we truly could clock our life. So precise to know exactly the moment that it all would end; but we can’t and we don’t.
Acknowledging that I have reasons to be grateful, gave me a moment of happiness today.
So for now, I count my blessings, one at a time.
