I was born on Feb 23, 1984. When the movie "The Number 3" came out in theaters, I turned 23 that day. Released on Feb 23, 2007 and 02/23/2023 is the 02 23 23 2232. Just an interesting pattern. I have always felt connection with the number 23, even before the movie. Also, this year my birthday lands on Thursday, the 23rd, the same day of the week that I was born on Thursday. But what does it mean? Posted on February 6, 2023 05:14
