How many of you believe in karma? In my opinion, good or bad, karma is a real thing. Alot of people believe in it, but won’t do anything that would bring good karma. I’m not saying you have to do anything big and extravagant. It’s the little things that go a long way.
This morning I was running late for work, like I am most days, but I had to get gas first or my car wasn’t gonna make it there. As I’m finishing up a woman comes up to me with jumper cables in hand. She asks me if I had time to help her jump her van. As I’m telling her I’m running late to work I think about all the times I had car issues and some random person offers a helping hand. Or all the times I was walking to school, which was like 5 or 6 miles away, and people on there way to work stop and gave me a ride. So I tell her I can help and we get it started. Even though I was a few minutes late, if she didn’t get her car started she might not have went to work at all.
Putting someone else’s needs before yours is what attracts good karma. I could have left, went to work and gone about my day. But what would happen the next time Im stuck on the side of the road? Would anyone help me? Would they drive by and not even look my way? Or would I end up spending a bunch of money on a tow truck?
Like I said in the beginning, a little karma goes a long way. So the next time you find yourself in a situation that you could possibly be a big help to someone else, do it. Be that helping hand.
