I am participating in Write Tribe's Festival of Words from 1st to 7th September where nearly 82 bloggers are writing on the theme of Seven for Seven days - a post a day!
In the forthcoming seven days, I will be writing on the Sevens that make my life and meanderings.
The word Seven has been a fixation in my life as it was the number that was most favoured by my Sunday school teachers and the pastors whose sermons I have grown up listening to. As much as the number Seven is favoured, 6 is dreaded as the number of the Anti-christ. No numerology and all that mumbo-jumbo but Seven always got a special nod and glow. And strangely, I have gotten used to the number Seven and almost always end up favouring the number, of course not out of the fetish for numerology and all that mumbo-jumbo but because it’s a comfort zone for me and may I add, many Christians who have gone to Sunday school and heard diligent sermons also give special preference to this number. So, I must admit that I was excited a wee bit when the Write Tribe had chosen Seven to be the key word for its Writing Festival! Well, here goes my first post of the inaugural day of the festival.
I thought that my first Seven would be the Seven characteristics that are an integral part of me but I choose to conveniently forget or perhaps pretend that I don’t have them.
~ A bad procrastinator
~ Not valuing time
~ Wills to change some existing patterns but never does as a comfort zone has been formed
~ Swears quite a lot while having internal conversations which is quite alarming
~ Takes for granted that I am the best, which is a delusional thought
~ An extrovert who likes being alone but never portrays that
~ An individual whose inner thoughts and outward actions don’t often match
The above Seven traits are something that need to be broken from my personality and this first post will strive as a remainder towards that goal.
Hope to share more of my Sevens in the days to come. So, what are the Seven traits in you that you wish to change?
