Ladybug

A ladyug - photo taken by my sister

Today started off as a pretty bad day. Loads of worry on my mind, sad thoughts remembering my grandpa's birthday, then brand new sad news and a hectic day at work on gazillion degrees Celsius in the office. It would have been an awful day altogether if it hasn't been for a tiny red ray of light - a ladybug that landed on my back and made me smile. As the day progressed, things got better and better and now I'm going to bed feeling good and positive. It seems like this little joyous occasion was a promise of better times ahead.
Današnji dan je počeo prilično loše. Puno birga, tužnih misli i sećanja na dedin rođendan, nove tužne vesti, ludnica na poslu i milion stepeni u kancelariji. Mogao je da bude u potpinosti loš dan da nije bilo jednog malog crvenog zračka svetlosti - bubamare koja mi je sletela na leđa i oraspoložila me. Kako je dan odmicao, stvari su se lagano popravljale i sada idem na spavanje pozitivna i u dobrom raspoloženju. Čini mi se kao da je taj mali veseli događaj bio obećanje da dolazi bolje vreme.

I was curious if this could mean anything, so I googled a ladybug tonight and learned this:
Bila sam radoznala da li postoji neko značenje u svemu tome, pa sam večeras guglala bubamaru i evo šta sam pronašla:
The Ladybug is widely considered a symbol of luck and is seen as a good omen when it comes calling... Ladybug teaches life is short and it teaches to let go of ones' worries and fears, to trust in spirit and enjoy life... (see these two texts here and here)
Bubamara se smatra simbolom sreće i na nju, kada dođe, se gleda kao a dobar znak... Bubamara nas uči da je život kratak i da treba da se oslobodimo briga i strahova, da verujemo i uživamo u životu... (evo dva teksta na tu temu)
I like a bit of mystery in life. It spices it up. I also like to think that there was something in this tiny event - a message that everything is going to be all right a lesson that worry doesn't lead you anywhere.
Volim pomalo misterije u životu. Ona ga začinjava . volela bih da mislim da ima nešto u ovom malom događaju, možda poruka da će sve biti u redu i lekcija da zabrinutosz ne vodu nikuda.

A ladybug landed on my back this morning, and, if it was just that, it made me smile!
Bubamara mi je jutros sletela na leđa i, ako ništa drugo, barem mi je izmamila osmeh!

Pa nisam nešto praznovjerna, ali u biti bubamara te je razveselila, a to je dokaz da zapravo život sačinjavaju male stvari. :)
