A favorite author of mine, Claire Cook included a saying in one of her books that I really enjoy, “Karma is a boomerang.” It is a great philosophy to hold in life, but every once in awhile we all wish we could give karma a helping hand.
If you have one of ‘those’ family members or co-workers you know exactly what I mean. Certain people just have a way of getting under our skin. Despite your best intentions, you find yourself wishing that this person would step in front of a moving truck…(visions of the movie Mean Girls fit perfectly here).
How do you emotionally step back and hope that karma will do its job. You remind yourself that negative thoughts will only hurt you, and that you are giving this other person more power than they deserve, but still you wish karma would just hurry up, and that you could be there to watch.
This is exactly where I find myself right now, and no matter how many times I listen to Queen Elsa tell me to ‘Let it go” I am struggling to do so. I want to let it go, I want to allow Karma to do its thing. It helps a lot to focus on the many wonderful things in my life, remembering that no matter what that person says or does, I have a fantastic life. Refusing to retaliate is hard, but usually it is the best choice and my happiness is the best revenge.
