K -- Karma

Karma. Is it a real thing or not?

While I'm not sure its karma that happens, I do believe that we get payback for things we do. Sometimes it's instant, sometimes it can take awhile. This can work in both ways as well. I'm sure most of us have heard of "pay it forward." If you are handed a good deed, the best thing to do is pass a good deed onto the next person you come into contact with. I'm a firm believer that in due time, you will be rewarded.

Then there's the negative side. What goes around comes around. I think we all find comfort in that when someone has done something horrible to us. With me, it's mainly been relationships with guys. I've been cheated on. For anyone who has gone through that, you know exactly how much it HURTS! Before I go any further, let me make this clear. I don't wish anything bad to happen to anyone. That's not right. But in the midst of a break up, it gets you thinking about karma. Are they eventually going to date a girl that will do the same thing to them? I guess I'll never know.

I've been a victim of karma... recently it was instant. In my basketball class we were playing knockout. My competitor's ball landed near me so I swatted it away to try and score a point before she could. A few minutes later... my ball bricks off of the rim all the way across the gym. Yep, it was minor but it happened. LOL

What are your thoughts on karma?

Yes I do believe in Karma. Everything you do comes back to you. You reap what you sow. Glad I popped in for a visit.

I certainly believe in karma. I would never wish anything bad on anyone either, but you know, sometime people treat you so badly, you just HOPE someone will treat them the same way. I think that's just natural. We're only human :)

Yep, Karma's a fact of life. Good karma, bad karma - it's all about learning lessons that we need to master in order to graduate from this form of life and move on to better places.

I'm not sure. It's a nice thought and I do try to do my best by others. I'm just not certain that karma exists (and now that I've said that I've probably put out loads of bad karma, so let me revise that). It exists, it exists!

Great post for K. I believe in Karma. Everything you do comes back to you. Good job.

Firm believer in what goes around comes around, good or bad. I've seen it happen over and over. Not always in one's own generation neccessarily. I try to be careful how I treat everyone because you never know who you're going to meet if you're on your way down.

I am going to mention your blog on my site Thurs 4/15.
