33.

33.

A Story by Desert Rose

A number that i’m seeing almost everywhere i go for the past few months & up until now, for some reasons i can’t quite understand just yet,

it also happens to be how old i am as of yesterday, June 9th, 

so, just for kicks & as a thank you for all the birthday wishes & without further ado,

here are 33 certainties in life, from my own (shocking) perspective, in the form of a list Buzzfeed article for you tl;dr..ers out there:


1- Everything happens for a Reason. 

2- Our problems as a species are neither Political, nor Economical, they're (primordially) Social.

3- Egotism, not Cancer, is humanity's worst disease. (& we’re all sick…myself included)

4- Belief/Religion (or Lack thereof) is not the Problem, Organized Belief is. we’re all Spiritual one way or another. 

5- “If you let People's perception of you, dictate your Behaviour, then you will NEVER grow as a Person” (Mr. Feeny);

In other words, People will Judge you & people will give their opinion of you whether you like it or not, all you have to tell yourself is that Opinions are like a******s & that everybody has one.

6- Humans are indeed capable of Real & Unconditional Love, given that they stop running from it &/or take it for granted. 

7- Family Love is free & abundant..& no, you don't have to be Blood to be Family.

8- We need to hear less of the word "Tolerance" & more of the word "Embrace"

9- it is only when you're exposed to (deliberately or not) & when you experience the true filth of this world & its inhabitants that you can appreciate its beauty. (& Boy Riyadh was filthy..) 

10- There’s no greater power than the Power of Pain. The one that sits in between & transcends both Good & Evil. 

11- It is OK, & completely acceptable, to cry, once in a while. 

12- Music is our 5th Element. 

13- Work is a Double-Edged sword, it can (..& will) unleash you &/or kill you.

14- Perfection? ..Boring!...the Road to Perfection however.....

15- Becoming the first to/at something suddenly seems ridiculous when you can be the best at anything you put your mind into.

16- Life becomes much easier when you start referring to a critical situation as "Party”.

17- Every great thing does not come as easy. 

18- Ismists are too focused on labelling everything to appreciate anything; Ismism being the Condition which stems from the attribution of an"-ism" to every concept.

19- Being rich is something, being classy is something else. you may be rich in person, but poor in class…humph…

20- People don’t change…they become more of what they actually are. 

21- It’s hard being both a Romantic & a Misanthrope. 

22- We spend more time talking & thinking than we do feeling. 

23- We should probably apply half of the quotes we’re sharing on Facebook in our daily lives, 

24- Fact we should all get off of Facebook & disconnect a bit more often. 

25- Opposites attract..but not for long…Complementaries attract for lifetimes ahead. 

26- I back up any oppressed against their oppressor,

Regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, ideology, creed or religion; So if you happen to be a friendly & you notice that i'm antagonizing you, don't be surprised.

27- It is important that you do not kill that child in you. 

28- You CANNOT escape Karma..YOU! CANNOT! ESCAPE! KARMA! (ask Joan Rivers.)

29- Live & Let Live....& in very very..very rare cases...Live & Let Die. 

30- i will be changing my profile pic sometime between this year & the next one..promise. (-_-)

31- Navel Piercings & Ankle bracelets turn me on. 

32- All i can do is be me, whoever that is. (Bob Dylan) 

33- I share a birthday with Johnny Depp, Natalie Portman, Les Paul & Michael J. Fox. (^^)v


thanks again everyone.

I was about to go off on some very deep 'here here I agree responses' til you dropped a line from FEENY. Now I don't think I can write anything constructive, you got my BMW 90s girl bursting with adrenaline. I'll forever be in love with Cory Matthews and will always take heed to a lesson from Mr. Feeny. Fa Fa Feen hay!

Also, #3,4,24&25. You got about 5 years on me but appears we are on the very same wavelengths here.

Happy Birthday! :)

33 is my life number and it has been working out quite nicely for me so far (touch wood).

You raise some good points here ... my only advice would be to learn how to stay precisely in the moment and everything else will appear inconsequential.

Don't you think that consequence is only made real
When value is given to it ?

it is easy to think this way, as we choose to decide just how valuable a thing we learn is to us, read more

Thanks Lydia!! so kind of you!! :)
Happy belated birthday Neo...in Numerology the number 33 can indicate a time of focusing on humanitarian causes...a good time to follow dreams...it can signify your expression through life and matters of the heart...quite a rare number to see actually...or you could see it as 6 seeing it was close to your birthday - indicative of caring for yourself as well others...seeking harmony and so forth...either way...a shift is happening, I would say :) Blessings Neo...

Thank you for your wishes Hailey!!! :)
It surprised how true all of these are. I noticed after reading every line I was unconsciously nodding my head. I appreciated your sharing this. You should look up the meaning of numbers online. If you're seeing the same one over and over, the universe is trying to tell you something.

This almost made me cry. Almost.
No. 9, 10 and 21 hit me hard.
"It's hard being both a Romantic & a Misanthrope".. I'll probably quote this in my wedding vows or something.
I literally rolled up my sleeves and tied up my hair so I could have a clear go at reading this.

Happy Birthday my 10 years plus a day friend. Heres to the life that was forced upon us, lets see what we can make of it, eh.
