I have been counting more then usual. About a year ago, the counting was BAD. Then it got gooder. Then it almost stopped. Now it started again, but its not BAD, just annoying.
I am writing my stories with the TV on in the background, a Cover Girl mascara commercial comes on. My eyes are drawn to the commercial and i cant blink for 23 seconds. By then the commercial is almost over, i blink and i gain a point.
I save my points for when i really need them. Like if i have a headache, i use the point/wish to get rid of it. Sometimes it doesnt work, but i wont give up.
I also take a section of my hair and try to count to 23 strands.
23 is a very important number for me, it always has been, not sure why.
My life, is based around that number.
I take 23 steps outside till i reach the next mailbox. I hold my breath and count to 23 to the next one.
This isnt an EVERY day thing. Some days i am blessed and dont count at all, those days, are my favorite.
