"Karma is alive and well and she's a bitch you don't want to fuck with."
---Blake from Ella Ever After
Working on my story today got me thinking about karma. Good or bad, I definitely think it's real. I've always believed that what you put out in the universe comes back to you. And sometimes it comes back twice as hard.
I'm not going to lie. I don't wish sunshine and rainbows to everyone I meet. I'm not a saint. I once wished a policeman that gave me a ticket got a bad rash in his nether regions. I work in dermatology. Rashes are my thing. So what if I was in the wrong? But I quickly took it back. The last thing I want is a rash down there.
Okay, back to the point. I try not to put bad things out there, or mistreat people. Even people that aren't nice to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm no one's doormat, but I'm not a mean person either. Well, I may be mean to the villains in my stories, but they always have it coming, and I give nice happy endings to my h/h after being mean to them. But to living, breathing people I try to stay positive. And I'm really careful about what I do. The last thing I want is to be pimp slapped by karma.
What about you? Do you believe in karma? Or is she a myth to you?
BTW, the really cool shirt pictured above was designed by my sister and brother-in-law, true belivers in karma.
