11 Nov What is UP with 11?
People ask me this ALL the time…
and I love it.
11 is part of my story and sharing “why” always ignites me.
So, here it goes:
My love of 11 went to an 11 when I met my amazing husband.
I was living in apartment #1111 – he was living in #11.
We were engaged on 11/11… married on an 11th… and celebrate every 11th, every month.
When we see 11:11 (or an :11) on the clock it reminds us to slow down and connect to one another! When we are apart we send a little love text… in person, leaning in for a smooch is our fave thing to do, but regardless of where we are – it reminds us to count our blessings and cherish our love.
Friends and family – both online and off – associate the number 11 with me. Friends from all around the world send photos of their phone at 11:11, when they are sitting at table 11, when they are at exit 11… you get the idea. It has become my “Social Object”… something outside of a logo, name, or photo that reminds people of me.
(hmmmm… Do YOU have a social object?)
There are so many opportunities for “11” to show itself in this world – every single day. Sometimes it’s on the clock… the hotel room number… on a bus… a parking spot… even the gas pump or grocery market line that happens to open! Yep, 11 magically follows and finds it’s way in…
In my life and business – the number 11 is a reminder to stop, think about what is happening in that moment, and challenge myself to take the EXPERIENCE to the next level. Add a little extra “something” to make what I am preparing, creating, or engaging even more remarkable, memorable… even truly unforgettable.
