whistle a happy tune
Do you believe in karma? I do. I might not seem like it, really, or talk about it much, but I'm a very spiritual person, and most definitely believe that what goes around, comes around. I'm also a little superstitious, and I have this little thing where if something bad happens, or I feel negative, in any way - and not necessarily through my actions - I have to do something positive to counteract it. In my head, it's all about balancing it out; I feel like by doing something positive, and giving out good karma, there'll be a little bit of good karma that comes back to me, and to those around me, eventually.
And this is what happened the other day. Flowers always make me smile, and they make my mum smile, too. I bought her some when we were both feeling a little down about the riots, and put them in a pretty vase for her. She really liked them, which obviously made me happy for her, and soon enough things seemed a little less melancholy. And there's my kind of karma for you...
Aren't they pretty?
P.S. A little apology that there were no Friday Fives this week - it was a bit of an odd week by all accounts. Back with them next week :)
