Waiting for ladybugs
Tonight I am watching Under the Tuscan Sun, one of my favorite movies.
There is a scene about halfway through the film where Francis is talking to her friend Katherine about life and relationships. Katherine says:
"How are you going to be happy if you keep wallowing? ... Listen, when I was a little girl I used to spend hours looking for ladybugs. Finally, I'd just give up and fall asleep in the grass. When I woke up, they were crawling all over me" (Source).
I love this quote because it's so true with many areas of our lives. This year my hope is that I take more time to fall asleep on the grass and wait for ladybugs to crawl over me when I least expect it.
