MAT CHAT: LADY BUG

Monday, February 4

This morning I was at the McDonald’s drive-thru when a ladybug flew through my car window and lighted upon the steering wheel. “A ladybug! In February?” I gently laid my finger beside the red and black speck hoping the little bugger would crawl onboard. The ladybug flew off the steering wheel and landed smack dab in the middle of my lower lip. I felt a teensy pinch and suspect the tiny creature kissed me. A moment later the lady bug flew off. Wahoo!! It’s my lucky day! Ladybugs bring good luck; everyone knows that. Right?

I won’t fly on Friday the thirteenth, or walk under ladders. My superstitions began in childhood while avoiding sidewalk cracks, and blaming my teen-aged angst on broken mirrors. Now, as a well educated adult, I no longer believe in unlucky side walk cracks or negative experiences perpetuated by broken mirrors. But I do believe in lucky Ladybugs.

Illogical as it is, I can’t seem to shake this doormat behavior of allowing numbers, objects and the occasional insect, control over my life. Intellectually I realize this is ill suited to the recovering doormat lifestyle. It’s tough behavior to let go of; but I am trying. (Wish me luck.)

Standing up and knocking on wood. Rose

    First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.

    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Cheers!

      Hi Burton, thanks so much. I like to write first thing in the morning. Everyday. Sometimes it works and sometimes I find myself antsy and distracted. That’s when I start doing my laundry. Thanks so much for commenting, and I hope my answer is helpful. Rose.

    all the time i used to read smaller content which also clear their
    motive, and that is also happening with this post which I am reading here.

    What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious knowledge
    on the topic of unpredicted feelings.
