“7” is lucky number for us …in general
( on where I am grown up …)
Of course many people love the number 1..
(… competitions : like gold medal ).
Also on our culture : number 4 ( maybe just 4 is fine but when we write in our language). I prefer to write optimistic way …. trying to avoid some specific words : so now I am writing vague :
Number 4 ( in our language) suggest ” end of life ) because of pronunciation / sounds .
People tend to feel frightened even when we say ” April ” . We don’t care.
Maybe on this modern time , not so many people do care than before .
Beside some other counties / cultures or religions : number 13 is not preferred and even there are no Number 13 hotel rooms exist sometimes ..( I don’t know how is the situations are changing now …),
We don’t care about number 13 .
Once upon a time there are horror films of the Friday 13 th : that made me very scared as a kid. Just reminded me.
Some years ago, I was staying somewhere on abroad some period and sometime I felt so tired even other time I tried to seek / experiences new also adapt the new environment as fast as possible .
I used to visit and stayed some times before , so relatively not that hard to remember / adopt myself to stay there .
I had to made decisions on my own … as I was traveling on my own (… that means , I kept asking some suggestions to some locals : or actually even tourists… they have information as travelers/ tourists even locals don’t know … or recognized). Although many people I encountered thought I had family or relative somewhere but not true ( many people were so surprised… and some even kindly told me emergent contact information).
Back to original topics.
Travels are interesting and fun mostly .
But the same time , we feel very tired and feel even sick ( … even we are living in the place very very familiar to .. we are down or even more worse sometimes).
I saw sometimes car with advertisement “call to 444-444-444….????”.
I was on somewhere abroad and I was almost forgotten my country/ cultures traditions (… if that very short , suppose I do remember … but that time , I thought totally forgotten ).
And another time , I saw the another advertisement ” call 444-444….”.
That make me somewhat even frightened .
But again , I had to cope to the situations even I was suffering sick or ill ( I already got strange Azuma or couldn’t recovered from flu ). I got medicines at drugstores but didn’t suit to me .
If I go to see a doctor, I will be charged a lot (… I know I was on travel insurance : that mean , later I can get money back … but not sure ).
I could cure my sick or ill especially ” strange Azuma and flu like symptoms ” after moving to another places .
I think that’s climate also ” pollution “:
I will write maybe another time .
Back to my home country and later , I was reading some books , and recognized, the number :
444… or something is ” good numbers “, even the book say , ” angel number “.
I am not following any specific religions honestly even I am grown up and educated what we called Shintoism ( and Buddhism).
Of course when I am visiting to shrine , I feel I have to be good person or especially when I feel somewhat hopeless, I do pray in my mind even when I am super fine , I don’t care that much and just enjoyed architectures of Shrines or functions (… I mean , I can see more logically … ).
But when I am quite down , again , I feel I need some guidances.
Also we tend to feel our birth day is extremely special for us ( each of ourselves ).
Some people say :
I am already old and I don’t care my birthday .
Even many people say , suppose most of people do remember (… even don’t care to celebrate or even want to ignore .. or always being happy to be celebrated).
Somehow so strange for me —
As a kid , I was so happy and look forward my birthday always . Then after certain ages , I have started being melancholic…
and even said to many people..
” please ignore my birthday ! I don’t need to be celebrated.. no gifts , no happy birthday expressions..,,!!”.
For longer period I have force myself ignored (.. suppose as a adults , we are on huge pressures).
But now I am actually changed my ideas .
Why I felt avoided to be celebrated (…?).
Furthermore…. for “myself ” I do care very much unconsciously .
And for other people…. not that’s special like New Year’s Eve/ day or new fiscal year / day .
Now just I am trying to pay attention or enjoy (… even nothing special great treats or gifts etc ) for Several celebration occasions .
If we are missing these occasions: special days ( some remember and others forgot.. that’s natural ).
Back to topics about Number .
Having special number is actually nice especially when we feel very down or sad or we are loosing way .
