Totem Stories- Zen Ladybug

4bfe198a69b4f814918734110a296caa          Something extraordinary happened the other day that still leaves me feeling puzzled and thoughtful. I was coming home from school/running errands and I was getting ready to bring groceries inside my house. It is a little bit of a challenge for I have been on crutches for the past two weeks due to an injury. I was coming up the cement steps up to the apartment building and saw a little ladybug that was literally standing in front of me. I said, “I won’t step on you Ladybug sai.” I struggled doing this because of my crutches and the howling wind, yet I still protected the Ladybug. The lady bug had remained on the cement block of the second step as I waddled back and forth from my car to my house. The wind got stronger and began to howl. It became harder and harder for me to maintain balance, but I still succeeded. On one of my very last trips, I looked at the Ladybug again and thought: “How could something so small be unaffected by massive forces surrounding it that is far beyond it’s control?” The Ladybug sat so peacefully on the edge of the step, despite the heavy winds and whirling leaves. I am still puzzle on this thought ever since, and I’m going to continue to dig deeper to find out what this really means to me.
