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 :)


  1. they are very pretty! I'm not sure I really believe in Karma, although the idea of balancing negative things out is pretty sound to me! It definitely helps you feel better anyway! x

  2. Aw, this is such a nice idea! <3
    Since you're a Linguistics grad, we must have quite a few 'mutual friends' on Facebook! I'm sure you know Tim, who was one of my good friends in the first 2 years of uni, and Ana, and some others. Small world or what?!

  3. What a lovely gesture! I hope good karma will come around to you soon!

  4. Such pretty pictures! I definitely believe in karma, what goes around comes around! xo

  5. What a beautiful post and beautiful flowers to match. Like, Rachel, I'm not sure I entirely believe in karma but I love the idea of doing something positive to counteract negative experiences.

  6. Thanks for your lovely comments, everyone! Seems we're all divided on the karma issue :)

    @Emma - Yes! I know Tim and Ana - they were both on my course. How strange, we must have quite a few mutual friends :)
