I’ve wondered why so many things are classified as a “rule of three.” Three strikes & you’re out, bad things come in three’s, etc. (I understand where strikes come from, just needed another example). I’ve tried applying the rule of threes to my life on several occasions, mostly because it helps me feel good about something good happening after a series of bad things. This year has been a quick rule of threes for me. In five months, I’ve got the three bads already. January was uneventful – we moved into the new house (good). February was my diagnosis (bad). March my other grandmother died (bad). April, why can’t I remember April? Probably because I cracked my skull in a car accident in May (bad). So, those are the three bads, and one good. So if the rule applies, then I’m in for more good. I can say that getting the furniture from home was part good and part bad, as we now have a TON of boxes to go through, so that’s a wash & doesn’t count. So, do you believe in the rule of three, good things come to those who wait, karma (ran over your dogma – ha ha)? Does it apply to you? I’m still waiting for this good stuff!
