The wonder of weekends

I have my life back today ...

Since returning from Dunedin I've had a house guest, and it's funny now the place is empty. Funny, but in a totally great way.

It's not like I'm sitting here posting this naked in a leather chair[1] or anything - but when it comes down to it; I really like my own space. Space to breathe and if I'm in the mood, some music to break the silence. God; the silence, the whole not having to say anything.

Yesterday I dropped by the P's for a chat, and ended up getting the whole "This years going to be a good thing for you - blah - you've gotta promise to "get out there" this year speech. Nothing makes me more angry. People insist they have my best interest at heart but they just need to accept I have to live the life I want to, and that doesn't involve me being "out there", until I'm damn good and ready - if at all.

You either fit with someone else, or you don't. When you find someone that fits, and for some unknown reason you don't end up together, it just takes a bit of time to adjust to that fact. That there may be another piece of life's jigsaw puzzle that fits just as well seems...well.. suddenly very unlikely - at least for now.

So - my mum entered by birthday into a numerology website when I was in Dunnoz.

You are a reserved, analytical and peace-loving soul who is blessed with intuition and intelligence. Your ability to concentrate, learn and absorb information far outshines other numbers and you often excel at all forms of scholastics. Usually your intellectual prowess as well as the clarity and foresight of mind is very evident to others at an early age.

However at the same time you are also a very spiritual number. This is because you believe whole heartedly in the relationship between Mother Nature and science. This is part of your inquisitive nature and determination to get to the bottom of what makes the world tick.

You dislike braggarts, gossips and neurotic individuals and find socializing difficult. This is because you can barely hold back your contempt of other people, who are often, indeed acting like fools. You dislike crowds, noise and confusion, so others are more likely to find you watching television at home rather than attending a big sports events.You are not likely to have a wide circle of friends, but once you do accept someone as your friend the bond is usually for life.

The same thing goes for your love life. It is not unusual for a seven to go their entire life without a partner simply because you cannot relate to the emotions and drama that accompany most relationships. This causes you to appear self-centered to others as you opt to spend your time on more interesting subjects.

Hey! I'm not about to believe that the date of your birth determines your whole existence - I'm just saying, that like most things in life, if you throw enough rocks, you're bound to hit a few targets.
That said, I see more than a passing resemblance to myself in those damn italics, but as one of the P's said last night "Nobody ever said you couldn't enjoy tomorrow".

And in that, at least, they're absolutely right. :)

Now I am curious what site your mum used. I just found one where you put in your name and it gives you back information regarding your:
number (6)
soul urge number (3)
inner dream number (3).

Most of it was pretty accurate. Now I just need to find a new job to exploit what I already know but do not do.

Actually my uncles son runs a numerology site. I was interested to see his google hits hinted at a scam and I couldnt help myself...

I was so paranoid I used a fake name - but my correct birth date. As some of the numerology bits use the name you supplied only one part was relevant to me (supposedly) :)

So I tried yesterday without any luck. I tried again today without an apostrophe in my name and it seemed to like that.

Apparently I am schizophrenic.

My Life Path was 8 - "natural born winner who is destined to make a lot of money" I liked the sound of that, but really what are the chances of that. I rarely win at anything.

"You take great pride in your physical appearance and often appear very attractive to the opposite sex" - hmmm

"You don't have much patience with people who are dreamy or mystical in nature and are a rationalist at heart" - quite the opposite actually

"Often the strength of your personality is overwhelming for those who come into contact with you." - I think that I would be hard pressed to find anybody who would say that about me.

I am so not an 8.I much prefer my expression number of 6.
"You are a peace loving, harmonious individual who is a natural born diplomat" . Yeah that is me alright. But my Life Path told me "Sometimes this gives you a bit of a reputation for being cut throat. Sometimes you are not so much respected as feared by those that you lead."

"You excel at making others feel good about themselves and have the ability to instill new hope in lost hearts with a kind touch or wise words." - well that I do try.

"You are also deeply spiritual and have a great faith in a higher power." one word - Reiki.

"Ironically, you may be good at caring for others but not so good at caring for yourself." Again I think that is a fair point.

But I am getting a Soul Urge. of 1 (the other site gave me a 3).

"You may see your pride as being evidence of your high self-esteem and confidence. However sometimes your ambition and drive is so extreme that it disgusts and angers others who may perceive you as selfish and controlling." - What the heck - I have low self-esteem and confidence.

I give up - Confused is what I am...
