Blog post in honor of 123456 twitter followers
Recently there was major excitement in my brain that scaringly didn’t involve anything involving caffeine. It had to do with my obsession with stripes, prime colors and numbers neatly in order.
YES, I was approaching the moment of 123456 Twitter followers.
So rather than focus on other fleeting moments that will never happen again in my lifetime ( FYI Thanksgiving will fall out on Chanuka for the only time in our lifetimes) I wanted to chat about why many of us like neat patterns and cool numbers.
So, why do we like our ducks in a row ?
I think it must have something to do with an innate love of predictability in our lives. Even if I can’t control the world around me, there is something very soothing about having the numbers around me align. Simple as that.
And here’s the irony, I got busy with life and missed the 123456 moment. It jumped to 123457 …. so perhaps there is beauty in that too. The real stability comes from within, the ‘ducks in a row’ syndrome might just be a reminder of that.
