    With apologies to Shakespeare – "let me count the ways"

    What numbers will we love?

    telephone numbers


    happy anniversaries

    milestone markers of our own children

    test scores


    horse races

    What numbers can we hate [or dislike]?

    school math



    body mass index

    test scores

    Some numbers have been in both categories because our love or hate sometimes is dependent upon your number!

    Numbers in cultures and religions

    In a few cultures our age number is assigned whenever we finish that year and in other cultures that age number is given at the beginning of 4 seasons – beginning on the beginning of life. So that you age number will differ according to your culture!

    In Hebrew, all letters have a very numerical equivalent every word’s number may be the total of people individual numbers – therefore words have numerical meaning plus the literal meaning. And the Hebrew bible [Torah or Old Testament] includes a book called Numbers.

    Particular numbers have significance based on your beliefs. Some are 3, 7, and 666.

    Children love numbers

    counting games


    birthday candles

    the volume of cookies or presents

    a comparative age

    just endless reciting of numbers or counting

    Teens and Adults get the love-hate relationship with numbers

    Whenever we so love numbers when we are young – what are the results we begin to dislike them?

    Let’s begin with parents who wish to discuss the terrible 2’s. Include the 2’s so "terrible" or am i pre-programmed to consider so? And should we pass this on our little ones so that they start to learn that some numbers are not-so-good???

    You have to possess the amorphous "someone" who lets us know that arithmetic is tough. I not really know who started this myth however it is a myth. Worse – we tell children that arithmetic is more difficult for girls than for boys! So those numbers learn to enter in the hate category.

    We love to turning 13! We have been teenagers! And very quickly we can drive!

    We dream to get good grades at school and so on the tests that "matter." When the numbers are not that which you were hoping or expecting we have sad or perhaps depressed. Yet a smattering of us wonder if those test numbers mean anything in the real world outside school. We assign love/hate for many years.

    As well as in many countries we love to reaching the legal day of driving, drinking and voting or marrying. These are good numbers therefore we love them.

    Unless, of course, we hate them!

    Look at the numbers that you experienced and as an alternative to having a love/hate relationship using them, think of what you mean to you and why…then learn to love all of them! They are your numbers and they are generally you!
