It’s useless to count things for the sake of it.

Every number has a meaning, its own politics and story.

The nature of every number signifies that it means something different to each person.

23 doesn’t favour being a good or bad number on the face of it.

However, 22 was incredibly transformative.

I look back and just gasp in awe. The people who have come into my life, and even for those who left, I’ve enjoyed the lessons learned from all good and bad.

I relish the challenge of 23, and hope I can use 0–22 as guidance.

Im not starting from scratch; however, this is only the beginning.
