my birth number

I borrowed the book "The Life you were born to live" by Dan  McMillman from the library after a good friend of mine recommended it.

It is a book about your birth number. You find your birth number, which mine was 31/4. All three (3, 1 and more specifically 4) have meaning in my life. It spells out what the numbers mean etc. 

This is in the tune of astrology. Some people buy it. Others don't. I love learning about this stuff, I don't allow it to limit who I am, but I often learn something about myself in a new way. 

When reading this book, I really related to the number 4 in the process aspect. The number 4's main component is around stability and process. The part that I most related to, was process. I want everything, without going through all the processes....I can relate this to a number of things.

1) I want an organized accounting system...and do not want to go through the process of setting it up.
2) I want a successful small crafty-business, but don't want to write a business plan or set myself up  completely.
3) I want to lose weight but don't go through the process or follow through of doing all of the steps that I am all too familar with on how to achieve that goal
4) i want a partner. i don't want to date.
5) i want fabulous food. i don't want to cook it.

see...I can go on and on and on. When I read this part, it struck me. The story he used that really struck me, was that 4's often start building a house in mid-air just because they want a house. They forget to do the foundation.

So...I have dedicated February to the foundation!! I am focusing on the process on how to get what I want. I can follow steps easily, once they are laid out for me.

They both start with F's too. February is foundation month for me.

This shows that you have really good insight into your own "self". I think this is fascinating and hope you keep us posted on your discoveries. I love your accounting of your process woes....sounds familiar. Great post. Good luck.
Fondly, (that's another "F")
