Superstitions

I hope all of you had a great day. My day was really good. Nothing really great happened, but overall it was a good day. To show that I am not all negative about love I wore my red sweater today. It felt great waking up, feeling good about myself and where I am in life and moving on with my day. I love how my meds are working and I love this good feeling I have had the last month or so. I am really kicking myself for not going to the doctor earlier to get a little bit of help.

So let's talk a little bit about superstitions. Growing up as a Jehovah's Witness we were taught that there were no such things as superstitions and they were just the work of the devil anyway. A couple people from work were talking about them the other day and it got me thinking about any superstitions I have. The only one that I can really think of is kind of silly I think. I take the same highway to work everyday. Right when I get on the highway there is this one part where there is a small section of extra concrete and when you drive over it it's like going over a small speed bump. Most people avoid it, but somewhere along the line I thought that if I drive right over it then I will have a good day. There have been a couple times when I have been in the other lane and missed it and my day was usually really bad. So every morning I make sure I am in the lane of this one spot and I make sure I drive over it everyday. Kind of crazy isn't it? I am sure the only thing I am getting from this is tire more worn out on that side.

So, what are some of your superstitions?

I honestly don't have any that I can think of. I sometimes "knock on wood," but I don't believe it really changes anything or prevents anything. I just do it to sort of make a point, I guess.

When I was a kid I used to cross my fingers and make a wish sometimes. Is that a superstition? I donno.

Nope, I'm boring. No repetitious behaviors. Annoying ones, yes!!! LOL!!

Oh boy my family is Irish and the number of superstitions would boggle your mind. Yes I am very superstitious but I can laugh at a lot of it. Good for you for getting the meds and feeling better. I switched mine and the dose is lower and I feel better too. I bet your red sweater was purty. I wore a black top with red sequined hearts all over it and red corduroy levis.

I think the closest superstition I believe in is that if my car gets washed, it will rain or snow in 7 days or less. I hadn't washed my car in ages and on Monday the young'ns in my office stole my car during lunch and washed it. Guess what I woke up to yesterday morning? Snow. I kid you not!

I never put a pair of shoes on the table, it means someone will die. Silly or not, I won't take the chance of being responsible for anyone's demise, so sometimes when I'm picking up around the house, if I *almost* start to put a pair of shoes on a table for a second, I'll catch myself - WHOA!!! I know, it's insane.

I have one that has cropped up recently. I think that if I check my messages for the final time too early in the evening, I will miss something very important and might not get the message until late the next night if I get too busy to check in the next day.

I don't know if that quailifies as a superstition, but it's all I got right now. Except for some Murphy's Law type of stuff.

Well crap! Since I grew up a Jehovah's Witness too, I can't tell you about superstitions either. I'm sure I have some though, I'll just have to think about it a bit. :)
