Thought for the week: Don’t let idiots ruin your day.


There’s a natural law of karma that vindictive people who go out of their way to hurt others will end up broke and alone. Everyone gets dumped and everyone gets hurt, and there’s karma to love in regards to what you’ve done to other people.

What goes around comes around. Being generous or doing things for others actually makes me feel good. I do good things for people so I will benefit from that. I believe in karma and I believe if you put out positive vibes to everybody, that’s all you’re going to get back.

Before you begin on the journey of revenge, dig two ditches. One may just be for you. What goes around comes around back on you. Do good, you get good. Do bad, you get bad. As an old saying goes, old dogs have their day.
