My Karma Theory
Kind of like the law of attraction, I am a firm believer in karma. Maybe not karma in definition form, but my own version of it. Maybe its just that I believe our minds are powerful thresholds in creating our own reality. Good Karma is something I tend to live by. The woman at the gas station near my house cracks up at me every time that I empty my purse out into the bins at the counter. Well yes today I would like to: "Help a family in need, help children with cancer, and find that missing girl". I feel like the little that I can do, is well worth it. If I am capable of eating dinner each night and spending ridiculous amounts on my cosmetic collection-- why not help those who aren't as lucky? If I needed the help, I'd hope that the universe would pay me back as well.
I've always had this soft spot in my heart for those that are less fortunate. When I was young my parents taught me a few valuable lessons, on being "If you want anything in life, you've got to work for it". I have been lucky enough in my life to have a very supporting family who won't allow me to suffer. But that brings upon an even more important question "What about those who aren't as lucky as I am?". There are so many people in the world that don't have anyone to go to when they need help. Those are the people who my heart goes out to the very most.
There have been so many times in which I have been giving to some sort of organization, and someone I am with scoffs at the fact. "Its not like you're rich Lydia, why are you giving to someone when you need it yourself?". That's the exact attitude that gets you no where on terms of karma. I may not have a lot of money to give, but the mere fact that I am giving is what will help me in return one day. I believe that what ever you give, you will receive when you need it. So all of those times that I have helped the world, I know it will come back to me one day.
There have been counltess of times when me and my husband have no money what so ever. We're collecting our change and searching for ways to pay the bills, and boom! Some how enough money to survive just drops into our laps. Why does this happen? Many people would speculate different reasons. But by reading this article you already know why I think it happens. Its karma. Its the universe giving back for all of the times that I have given. So yeah, some people might think I am crazy for it. But I'll continue on my way to help those who need it. Because who knows, one day, I might need some help as well.
