I was talking to the nurse that works for my company the other day and we got on the subject of karma. I mentioned to her that I was a firm believer in “what goes around comes around.” I also said, glibly, that I was trying to get some extra credit points with the “man upstairs”!
She reminded me that it was not necessary to build up credit with God. Nonetheless, I am going to hedge my bets just in case!
I realized the last several days that I have been a bit grumpy. It seems like my soul is a bit miffed and my spirit edgy. I started to realize that with my back issues and all the bills for the doctors, the lack of my crappy insurance to pay the bills, and the pain I was in, was stealing my joy. I decided that my attitude stinks and to adjust it by being more thankful. Every day I remind myself of the little victories that I have in my life. That I no longer have pain in my leg or back from my injury, that I am once again able to make things for long periods of time, and that my creative spirit has returned.
So this week’s random act of kindness is to myself. I gave myself permission to find the beauty in life (in mine specifically). I also signed up for a class this month at my local quilt shop. There is nothing like getting together with like minded ladies and creating! I also signed up for 2 craft shows within two weeks of one another which will force me to create!
Every now and then it is good to take care of yourself and show yourself a bit of kindness!
