Black Karma

"How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours." ~Wayne Dyer


Today ended up being a really good day. (Cheers!) I am still in shock at how well I handled everything. I often joke about karma.. but today I felt it.

One of my friends is studying to be an esthetician, and she told me that her instructors informed her to always put "good energy" into everything she does. She specializes in giving the most relaxing spa experience. I believe it is because she does it with love and kindness.

This week, as I chose to deal with my more "difficult" counterparts, I chose to do it with love and respect. I truly wished others well, and even said a little prayer to bless that person. So far, today has been fairly good.

After work, I headed to my WW's meeting, and my dears - I lost 2.4 pounds! That's a total of 4.6 pounds lost in 2 weeks!!! I am very proud. So proud, I picked up the phone and called the egyptian. What did I get? "Yes, Yes.. Nicole. I will talk to you later."

Yesterday I announced something else wonderful that happened, he did not even make eye contact and he sort of grunted an acknowledgment.

I know you can't depend on one person for all of your happiness. I know this. And I try to look (upward) and find satisfaction there. I think at the end of the day, I need to remember that how someone treats you is their karma.. the way I react .. is mine.

I will continue to revel in my happy moments. It is clear that the emotional support and words of affiirmation  are not his cup of tea. It's just not his character, well.. at least with me. He used to be my biggest cheerleader... I guess the newness of me has worn off. I am happy, at least, that I still look at him lovingly, I still encourage him. That, in and of itself is a miracle. LOL Most guys get a 3 year window with me. hahahaha..

Sorry... had to throw a joke in the middle of the serious subject. LOL

Ah.. well.. at the end of the day, I am proud of me. Those who don't wish me well... I guess that is their own black karma to deal with. :-) I enjoy the support I get here, I love when my close friends laugh with me and cheer me on, and more importantly - I am happy with myself. That's got to mean something, right?

AWESOME! Good for you! Doing twirly dance for you! I love the quote too! Going to share! Was a horrible Monday with loads of bad black Karma put off on me, and so many family members pulling me down, ugly truths came out, threats made and hurt feelings, gut wrenching bad feelings...and I had no real part of it but was accused of...I treated the person with kindness despite what was said,but did put an end to it..or so I thought, it opened pandora's box...and well yesterday was lovely, and today back to a repeat of Monday, but worse, with more drama no matter how much I back away, and then bad news at Drs. and so let it drag me down....I so needed to read your post sooner!
