2017 will go down in history as PRIME
This will be an amazing year. I have declared it. I have PROPITIOUS as my theme word (or foundation word). My motto for 2017 is “I am worth it.”
This morning my oldest and I were talking with my youngest and trying to explain prime numbers. We were giving examples of what was and was not a prime number. My youngest decided to test us and gave a random number to see if it was prime. “411.” It took me only a second to declare it was not a prime number.
Do you remember that trick? You add up all the numbers in the number and if the sum of those numbers is divisible by three then the number is as well (which means it’s not a prime number).
I explained the trick and gave an example. “See, 2017 is not divisible by three because it totals up to 20. However, 2018 is.”
My youngest stood and stared. “So what you’re telling me is that 2017 is a prime year.”
Yes – YES IT IS!
This year – by mathematical standards – turns out to be a prime year. This year – by focused determination – will be MY prime year.
Google defines prime as “a state or time of greatest strength, vigor, or success in a person’s life.”
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines prime as “first in order; first in rank; first in excellence; first in value.”
Mathematically, prime is a number that is a positive integer that has no integer factors except one and itself.
The math is on my side. Now I have to be on my side. If I continue to take the steps set out in my White Board of World Domination, and if I continue to walk out the year of PROPITIOUS, and if I refuse to stop – THEN (and only then) will I live out my own prime year.
