I know it’s nerdy, but I intentionally started writing this post at 11:11 on Veteran’s Day. For those of you who missed 4th grade history, Veteran’s day is on the 11th day of the 11th month.
I’m not in the least bit superstitious, but I make wishes at 11:11 every night. And wish on the 11th is extra-powerful. I don’t expect them to happen, I don’t believe in anything like that at all, but it’s more like a “what the hell, why not?”
I know it’s ridiculous. Why waste my time making wishes I don’t believe in? But it’s something to do. Then, if it comes true, I’ll wonder if there is some kind of higher power. Then I’ll shake my head, roll my eyes, and chalk it all up to coincidence.
It’s not a search for a higher power. I came to terms with my lack of belief a long time ago.
I believe it’s just hope that what I want to come true, will come true. Corny, I know, but it’s just something I do.
