A Broken Mirror…

Yes, I broke a small handheld mirror! Oh my goodness, what a mess it was, too I must say…How did it shatter all over the floor like that? Does it mean I am going to have 7 years of bad luck? NO, and just why not you may be wanting to ask? Well, because I am not superstious…I never have been and never will be. I am kind of sad about breaking the mirror, but that’s OK because I do have others. I got it all cleaned up so I won’t be having any cuts on my feet, so I’ve got that angle covered. I am not at all vain, so I don’t make it a habit of admiring myself in mirrors, so all good there, too. I had to put that vain thing in this post…Because I don’t want anyone thinking I was perhaps talking to the mirror. You know…The mirror, mirror who’s the fairest of them all thing! I do of course check myself out in a mirror before I leave the house though. I’ve got to look presentable after all, right? I kind of think we all must do that…Or do we?

It made me think about superstitions that people have though. No offense to anyone who is superstitious either, after all we are all different. Everyone thinks what they think, you know? Far be it from me to ever try to change anybody! But some people are superstitious and they do have their reasons and I have mine why I’m not. My theory is everything happens for a reason and it was the mirror’s time to be broken. It must have served whatever purpose it was supposed to and that’s that… Now, it’s gone. I didn’t have any real strong attachment to it, so my heart isn’t broken over its loss. The time spent cleaning up all those little shards and bits of glass? Well, I guess it was time well spent and I won’t be having any unwanted cuts…I was seriously very thorough!

I had a chat with Autumn about the whole deal, that’s what Twinnies do, we share these strange little happenings. Well, Autumn isn’t at all superstitious either. She just said, it was good I wasn’t cut in cleaning up the mess. Also adding, the mirrors time is over and you do have other mirrors, after all. We chatted about me writing a post on this and agreed I just had to! So, this thing of being superstitious…I am just curious and I do have to ask. You must have known I would! Autumn is also now pretty curious herself, too!

Are any of you kind readers at all superstitious? Are any of you not at all in this category? Do you not have a superstitious bone in your body? Please do share…You can, you are among friends here! 🙂 Inquiring Twinnies both would love to know your thoughts on this topic! 🙂 🙂


It’s a Simple Question…~ Gabby Angel

Looking at a half glass of water, if you don’t like water pick another beverage. 😉 Is the glass half empty or half full? My answer of course would be…It’s half full. Why? Well, because I am an optimist and I do count my blessings I am. It’s a thought I was pondering yesterday and remembering. My twin sister Autumn, yes she’s an optimist, too. Hate us or love us, that’s what we twinnies are.

This is kind of unusual memory…We once took a survey of the half empty/half full theory. Call us weirdos if you want to (we’ve probably been called worse), but we were working a 12 hour plus day. We co-managed a small store and had lots of work to get done and catch up on. So, Autumn and I both planned a long day for ourselves. The survey started out as a joke, but started to catch on…We had asked a few shoppers their opinions. It was kind of strange every one of them had answered half empty!

Well, being the ever curious types we twinnies decided we would take our day long survey. I must explain, it was a fairly small store and most of the shoppers knew us. They were all used to our sense of humor and sometimes rather amusing thoughts or conversation. Never a dull moment with Autumn and I, we like to interact with people. So, the day went on and we actually were keeping track. For real, we really were…We asked as many as we could. Is the glass half empty of hall full? The surprise was, and I do remember this clearly…70% said half empty. Only a pitiful 30% said half full, Autumn really got into a few intense chats with some of the lucky shoppers. She was trying to talk them into the half full theory being the best answer! What can I say, the girl loves a good debate! Anyway, isn’t that something? The majority of people were pessimists, how disheartening that survey was.

I wonder if any of you reading this would care to offer your own opinion? Come on, don’t be shy…Simple question! You could be so kind to let Autumn and I know what does that half glass of water look like to you? We twinnies are needing another survey, please make our day all you kind readers. I know Autumn and I would be overjoyed  to get a happier percentage this time around. I am not trying to sway anyone ;), but really isn’t it a nicer thought…The glass is half full! 🙂

Quite seriously, we would all be much happier people if we took that attitude in life. Look for the up side of things, not the down side. Positive thoughts, not negative ones. Something to ponder for the day and please do feel free to give us twinnies your answer. No pressure, honest! 🙂 😉
