Yay! This is my third post for Blogathon-2017.
I have been waiting to write this post, just because of the number three. I have designated ‘3’ to be my lucky number, all by myself. I don’t remember the first time this number brought luck to me. Since I was a carefree little girl, I started associating all the lucky charms to this number.
When I am not confident of the output of any action, I rely on this number. Sometimes, the multiples of this number. I know this is little crazy, but this is the way I am. Like, in a multiple choice question, if I don’t know an answer, I would always pick option (3) or option (c). It is my lucky number. I always asked for additional sheets only after 2 people had asked for. Hey , that’s my lucky number.
Always choose the third seat or the third row in buses! I need all the luck to reach the destination in one single living peace. When there are multiple queues, I choose the third one. You know, the third counter in the toll plaza, third ticket counter in Cinemas, etc.
There are few instances where I desperately search for this number. Like , if there is an important event, I start searching for this number. The date, the sum of all digits in the date, sum of all digits with year as a four digit number, sum of all digits with year as two digit number, etc. I only come to peace , if I can relate that event to this number at some point.
There is also a flip-side to this craziness. If there is something that does not go well, I start associating the failure to the absence of this number. Like, if a document approval at work does not go through, it is because it is not the third version that was sent for approval. If we don’t make it to a movie on time, it is because the seats are not booked in the third row / third screen.
Fortunately, I just don’t rely on this number, without making an effort to get things done. It is just a belief that associating this number or its multiples will make me believe in a positive outcome. So, I don’t intend to change this belief anytime soon. It is just a remainder of my childhood stuff, that is still stuff with me!
Do you have any crazy beliefs like this? Come on, Let us hear them out in the comments section.
