This week has really solidified my belief in Karma. These may seem like little things, but sometimes little things are all it takes.
The other day I went bar hopping with some friends for a birthday. At one of the bars, they had a $10 credit card minimum. I only wanted one drink, because I had to drive later, so I asked the girl next to me what she was drinking and told the bartender to put it on my card. She was really surprised at the gesture and told me she would give it to her friend for her birthday. I told her to wish her a happy birthday from me. The total came to about $13.00.
The next day I went on a small grocery trip for a few essential things. My card wasn’t working in the scanner, so the woman next to me pulled out some cash and paid for my groceries. The total was about $13.00.
Later in the week, I was going in to work and I noticed a cart from the next store over in our parking lot. At first I thought “I’m not taking that all the way back there. I didn’t leave it in the first place.” But then I remembered Karma, and thinking “energy in, energy out,” I returned the cart to where it belonged. It was a small gesture, but I knew it would make somebody’s job a little easier.
That night, a woman was trying to use a coupon, but she needed to add another dollar to her order to make the coupon valid. I told her she could get some candy. She said “what’s your favorite?” I told her “I would go for the Mint Musketeers, if you like mint chocolate. I haven’t seen those anywhere else but here.” She put them on the counter and told me to leave them out of the bag. She paid and started to leave without them, and I said “Wait, your candy!” She said “oh, that’s yours now. And here,” she handed me the receipt, “take this so they don’t think you stole it.” It was a small gesture, but the minty goodness sure made my job feel a little easier.
No matter what you do, make it positive. Release positive energy into the universe. The energy you give is the energy you recieve.
I’m incredibly happy to announce our fourth, annualy held, Fallout Week! Welcome all aboard!
Since this is the fourth year in a row we are doing this, I decided to change the program a little bit. During the previous Fallout Weeks I asked you people to name your favorite chracters, locations, dlc, stuff like that - it was all about choosing a favortie. But this time you will be asked to choose one of two things. One of the goals of this Fallout Week is to let you be free, so don’t be afraid to interpret the topics the way you personally like! Be litetal, or take it as a metaphor for something. Use it as a starting point!
