Karma’s A Bitch.

It’s my day off, it doesn’t happen a lot especially when you’re in business. I’m trying to wind down while looking at the backyard, thinking what’s next? Just the thought of it makes me tired so I decided to sit down on the couch, grab the remote control to search for a distraction. As I’m flipping the channels something intrigues me. This actor said something like “karma’s a bitch” ….

I paused and start listening, it wakes my curiosity and I decided to continue watching. I found myself asking what is this? Some kind a non-sense show that will end up badly or was it something different. While I was contemplating my thoughts, I saw that the show was titled “9-1-1″.

I have no connection with the show, but this episode made me curious. I ended up finishing the episode titled “ Karma’s a bitch and oh boy, I was not disappointed with the ending at all. I am now following the show on a regular basis. In my opinion I think that the show has a lot to say about real issues in life. You will succumb to the reality that none of us are different, at the end of the day, you learn something new all the time. All I can say we are just trying to survive the chaos that occurs everyday.

For me the episode is telling us that every action we take whether it is good or bad there’s always a balance that comes from it. The episode is reminding us that we should be careful with our decisions, actions and how we deal with everyone around us. Always think were not the only person only living on this planet because no one really knows what’s in store for us in the future ….

All my worries started to fade … concentrating on the show had almost occupied my timeless zone…… I continue to watch. I wanted to know what this was all about and to my surprise it was exactly what I needed. I saw people hurting people without even being given a chance to comprehend where they were coming from. I have seen greed cover some of us like a dark cloud in the sky as if there was no tomorrow. All they care is the gain not the consequences of their actions. We witness some people taking advantage of older people because they think they know better. We have seen people culturally hurt by the same people they grew up with. We have seen kids bully others because they thinks it’s cool. Life is full of surprises but those are the times that we learn to be stronger and mindful of our actions.

Be mindful of the words or actions you choose because there are things you can not take back once its said or done. A co-worker of mine once told me, because I was struggling between morally good and socially correct way to deal with other people. She said to me go by this rule” If you don’t have anything good to say just keep it to yourself” because it might hurt without you knowing it. And it will be too late to apologize. All you can do is to just move on and hope for the best and learn the lesson along the way for it will come again and repeat itself. Just remember, nobody’s perfect! And she was right!

I’m amazed that if you look at what is happening in our world right now you can really relate to this show, the struggles, the challenges, and the emotions we invest into it. I’m sure all of us at some point have experienced this.  We all have those experiences in life that we become the victim, some of us get away with it and some of us just merely forget about it because it is too much to bare and hope that time heals all wounds.  Letting go is one thing, but forgiveness is the hardest part of it. No one wants to be in this situation but here is what I think are the best approach’s the next time this happens. Life is a constant learning.

  1. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Respect, dignity and compassion are key.
  2. Take a walk in someone else shoes to understand them better.
  3. Spread the love not the hate.
  4. Communicate not dominate so that we all have a fair chance in life.
