I love when dates line up like this: March 3, 3-3. There’s something about the number three, too. Some people would say it’s lucky.

Third time’s a charm. Three’s company. There are a lot of sayings that involve the number three, and I always think of my mom when I hear them.

She’s always said three is her lucky number, and I think it’s awesome to have a lucky number. Having something fun to pull from in any life situation is amazing motivation.

Don’t believe me? Try it one of these days. Settle on your lucky number and live by it. It’ll help with things like decision making and you’ll be surprised by how much practical time it’ll save you. Still don’t believe me? Just as my mom — it works.
