KARMA

what goes around, comes around...keep the circle positive, peaceful and loving.

I keep this on my desk as a daily reminder {it's much needed at work!!}


Recently, I have decided that I wanted to try to live my life surrounded by positive thoughts and energy.  I would start to look at the good in every situation even if from the outside and at first glance the situation seemed negative or really bad, I would dig and dig until I found a positive. 

{Example of a current situation}...

The other day, my husband had a day off of work, he decided that he would take the kids to my parents house and go swimming all day.  I said that I would meet him there after work.  Since we have 2 dogs, my parents have been keeping one {Mason Nickolas} and the other one {Brady Gene} ((cough cough, yep, they have middle names!)) has been continuing to live with us until we sell our house.  So...I decided that before I went over to my parents, I would quickly stop by home and pick Brady up so he could play with Mason for a bit while we all swam.  I went to put my purse in the car and somehow between putting the purse in and taking Brady to the passenger side to get him in the car, we were both locked out.  My purse, MY PHONE, my house keys, all in the LOCKED CAR.  Now, I didn't have much of a choice, I found a neighbor, called Matt and sat on the front step of the house patiently awaiting his arrival to "save" Me and Brady. 

Heres my point :)

As I sit on the step, I think to myself...what did I do today that Karma is paying me back for?  I must have done something wrong!  In the 20 minutes that I sat there, I honestly couldn't think of one thing.  It wasn't until we got home later that night that I was looking through my purse and realized that I didn't have my wallet with me.  It was like a lightbulb went off!! Karma wasn't paying me back in a negative way, Karma was protecting me...If I had driven without a license earlier, I probably would have gotten pulled over and fined for driving without a license! At least thats the way I CHOOSE to look at the situation.

There is definitely something powerful about being able to take a bad situation and look at it in a positive light!



CHALLENGE TO YOU
:  Take something negative today and turn it into a POSITIVE!!!!  &&& I would love to hear your story :)

  1. Okay, I don't know how you managed to put a positive twist on that situation but kudos! (I personally would have still been aggravated, haha.)
    I try to be pretty positive about most things, but when something does go bad I have a hard time shedding much positive light on it. Go you!

  2. I love the Buddhist idea of karma. Just put out positive thoughts + actions, and the same will come back to you. I am glad your husband saved you! :)

  5. Hi! It's Natalie from Looking Through The Lens! I just did this today.
    I had a very bad day yesterday and I let my anger control me. I went to post something on twitter and got the "Oops something went wrong..." message. It was right then and there that I thought, this is God (or karma) telling me that I shouldn't post that because I will regret it later.

    Great blog, I can't wait to read more! :D
