Who would we be without our numbers?
The number of dollars in our bank accounts.
The number of bills waiting to be paid.
The number on the calendar.
The number of minutes left before we can clock out.
The number of hours we spend in our car.
The number of years it has been since we last travelled.
The number on the scale.
The number on our pair of jeans.
The number of drinks we had last night.
The number of crunches we promise to do tomorrow.
Who would we be if we stopped using these numbers to measure ourselves?
If we stopped using these numbers to punish ourselves?
Answer: We would be ourselves. Living in peace.
We'd still be looking at the scale, or at the clock, or at the bills on the counter top.
We'd still have the same amount of money, same amount of body, same amount of time.
We would simply be in peace.
In peace with what is.
In peace with who we are.
In peace with where we are.
Numbers are neutral.
They have no emotional power without our consent.
Choose a better story.
Live a better life.
