Food for Thought: Time for Reflection

Today is my birthday. I won’t say how old I am, but I will tell you that I have many grandchildren!

This is what the passing year of my life should have been like, according to the theories of Numerology.

Personal Year 5… . Feeling Loose and Free - This is a number 5 year, a year of major change in your life. Horizons are expanded and growth is less impeded. You are likely to make a number of new friends this year as social activities are expanded. This is a year that has brought/will bring excitement and adventure and a good deal more freedom than you have experienced in recent years. This is a time for feeling loose and free; for moving away from old routines in a constructive way. If you became bogged down during this past year, now is the time to seek out new directions.

The problem with a personal year 5 is the tendency to scatter energies in all directions. Your ability to do detail work is limited now and it will make you feel very confined. In all, this a free-wheeling year that is liable to bring major changes to your life; your career, your family situation, your residence. -

I think it pretty much nails it!

Over the last year I:

  • Moved to a new house in a new city
  • Went from 193 lbs to 118 lbs
  • Went from size 1X to size 6
  • Went from eating anything (and everything) to being a gluten free vegan (almost, I eat dashi and sashimi on occasion)
  • Went from having so many allergies I couldn’t go to a mall, a party, or fly on an air plane
  • Now go shopping in big malls
  • Flew on a 6 hour flight to another state on a packed air plane
  • Attended a huge party
  • Started this blog to share recipes with friends and family (and many others, it turns out!)
  • Haven’t had a migraine in months
  • Stopped taking naps and being tired all the time
  • Now am a happier, healthier and busy person!

In addition, because I do about 90% of the cooking in our house, DH has gone from 215 lbs to 175 lbs, no longer has to take prescription medications of any kind, lowered his blood pressure to normal, and his (life long) high cholesterol is a thing of the past! He was teetering on the edge of Type II diabetes but it’s no longer a problem.

While all of this had it’s up-sides and down-sides, over all, I think it has been a very, very good year!

I want to take this time to thank DH and all my other relatives, my friends, and all of you who have benefited from the posts on ScrapDeli for your love, kindness and support. All of you have made this journey so much better… I can’t help but look back and say, “It’s been so worth it!”

This is what the next year (in theory) should be like:

“Personal Year 6… . Love, Family, Home and Responsibility -

This is a number 6 Personal Year for you. A personal year 6 tends to bring on increasing responsibilities and a deepening concern for family, loved ones, and close friends. It may be a year when you are called on to make some adjustments in your life, or sacrifices for those in your family or close circle of friends. This is not really a year for major accomplishments, but rather a time to handle those adjustments to your plans that may be necessary or required, and for finishing projects started earlier. Endeavors will seem to be moving so very slowly throughout this year. You should expect to have a very good year so far as family, domestic, and romantic matters are concerned. Your emotional interchange with those who are close to you should be at its very best during this particular year. The important thing is to be willing to accept a slower pace and be sure to enjoy the peace and harmony that the personal year number 6 will bring. -

It will be interesting to see what happens!
