A confession of sorts…


Mint Julep Boutique tie dye tank, Le3no linen pants, Naturelook pyrite cube necklace, soulfeel charm bracelet, boho outfit, casual outfit, hippie outfit, henna, peace signs


This is weird, but I have got to get it off my chest.  Ready?  Really ready?  This is a super awkward confession. 

Ok… lately, I have been spending a ton of time talking to bugs.  Yes.  It’s true.  Now, let me explain.

With all of this crazy tie dye, feather, lotus, yoga boho stuff going on, I noticed that I’d been seeing a whole lot of Buddha.  Not knowing much about Buddha, I thought I’d do a bit of reading and educate myself about him and about Buddhism.  One of the things that I walked away from this reading with was the precept of "I will not kill."

Obviously, this is something that I can get behind… except for when it comes to crawly things… spiders in particular. 

And so, this is where my talking to bugs has come from.  Now, when I see a bug that in a former life, I would have grabbed a rolled up magazine and smashed, I now like to have a quick chat with the offending creepy crawly.  I either mentally (when I’m at work because I don’t want people to look at me like I’m crazy and because I have a feeling that bugs are telepathic) or verbally say something like, “Ok, Buggy… I promise not to swat at you as long as you promise not to dive bomb my head,” or “Hey, Mr. Bee, I will totally steer clear of you if you promise to steer clear of me.  And I definitely won’t squish you, but you have to promise not to sting me.” 

So far, it has gone amazingly well.  SB and I went out to dinner the other night and he was getting dive bombed by flies trying to eat his food.  I asked the bugs near me to leave my meal alone and they did.  Even now as I write this, I have a fly patiently sitting about 6 inches away from my right arm.  He hasn’t swarmed my face once and he’s completely left my peanut butter sandwich alone.  I’m also sending telepathic vibes to the 2-inch long horse fly that just zoomed into the building through the open door, zoomed around my head a few times (that’s when I started sending him “Please leave me alone vibes”) and then headed down the hall. 

So maybe the universe and I have managed to reach some level of harmony.  Or maybe I’m just weird and talk to bugs.

  3. I was amused reading this post. I never though of treating bugs this way but i guess there is something to the energy we give off really surrounds our being and reflects onto others (even if its a bug):)

    1. You know, it was one of those wonky sorts of things that just kind of popped into my brain, but I'm glad that it did. Even though I just may be a bit off in the head for it, it's worked. Just about an hour ago, my boyfriend asked me to "talk" a wasp out of the living room and I did and the wasp flew right back out the window!

    1. Thank you Ricarda. The bralette came from Deb. I got a few different ones from them and have been wearing them incessantly all summer! They were a great investment!
