  • Hey Alicea! I like your article and I shared it with my daughter who’s favorite number is 13 too. I went to Hilton Head and got to spend time with you waaaayyy back in Jan/Feb of 2011. I’m still doing good and have maintained my 45 pound weight loss.

Wishing You a Lucky 13

I would like to start this post by saying that I am not generally a superstitious person. For example, I did not feast on collard greens and black eyed peas for New Year’s yesterday (if you’re from the South you know these dishes are served—almost religiously—on the first of the year to bring prosperity and good fortune). That said, I can’t help but share my positive feelings for the year ahead.

Over the years, the number 13 has brought me good fortune and I believe it will do the same for you this year.  I encourage you to embrace the New Year with positive feelings and let go of any negative energy that was holding you back in 2012. Focus on all the opportunities yet to come instead of mishaps from 2012. An exercise we practice in our corporate wellness program is reassessing our vision each year and creating quarterly goals to help us move in the right direction. Each quarter brings an exciting challenge and an opportunity to start anew.

I know that many do not share my feelings for the number 13 but I found a few interesting facts about this number I’d like to share with you…

  • The moon moves 13 degrees around the earth every day and it takes 13 days to change from a full moon to a new moon.
  • There were 13 individuals at the last supper counting Jesus and the twelve disciples.
  • America began as 13 original colonies
  • Boys become men in Judaism at the age of 13
  • My new favorite workout song, “I Knew You Were Trouble” is by Taylor Swift, who’s favorite number happens to be 13
  • In ancient Greece, Zeus was counted as the 13th and most powerful god
  • If you breakdown the numbers, one symbolizes the creation and unity, while three symbolizes completion and order

So with that, I hope you have come to reconsider any ill feelings you may have about this number and coming year. I truly wish you a happy New Year and can’t wait to hear about all the amazing things and success to come!
