"K" is for Karma!


Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
Steve Jobs




I believe in Karma. If the good is sown, the good is collected. When positive things are made, that returns well.
Yannick Noah



I'm a true believer in karma. You get what you give, whether it's bad or good.

I like that 'Dear Karma' quote. I want to believe in Karma, but too often bad things happen to good people.

Nick Wilford said...

Nice stuff there. I like the first one - it seems kind of ironic! I try to do as much good as possible, but like Sarah said, I'm not sure if it truly exists.

Tobi Summers said...

Hear hear! What goes around, comes around, in some way. There might be some outliers, but I believe this as a general rule.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I really like the second quote, as it's very true, but the third one made me laugh!

Kyra Lennon said...

I believe in karma, but boy is it slow getting to some people!

Cristina said...

I totally believe in Karma.. I just hope it misses me, LOL kidding!!!!

Rachel said...

Love these quotes, Leigh. They're so funny! hahahaa Sorry I have been slacking on the comments- my internship just had a HUGE event :)

I also wanted to say I didn't know what to blog about for K so I blogged about Kangaroos. LOL!!!!!!

Betty Alark said...

True one!

I like your "K' word for today, Leigh!

Karma is very serious; I don't think a lot of people are that conscious of the fact.

Lessons- what goes around comes around; that is how we eventually have our eyes opened.

Let us all be mindful of sowing love, kindness, positive attitudes,peace, etc. within each passing moment!

I really don't desire for Karma to punch me in the face- hahaha!

cosmic retribution...I am a firm believer.

Joshua said...

I'm a big believer in Karma. You get what you give. Often, when a string of bad things happen in my life, I think, "Dear Karma: Whatever I Did To Piss You Off, I'm Sorry!"

L.G.Smith said...

Great quotes! Especially that last one. LOL.

Tracy said...

Yes Leigh,
I too am a huge beleiver in Karma...there's a saying I heard once and it's not directly quoted but refers to if we are lucky we get to 'watch' Karma happen :) I love that last quote you have!

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I keep waiting for Karma to catch up with a few people I know, but then I wonder if I'm on someone elses list...

Jack said...

Ok, Leigh, have you been peeking into my mind? ;)

I call it fate. You will find that if you tempt fate...fate has a nasty way of biting back.

I've seen this happen over and over again. The interesting part about it all is that it doesn't happen right away. NEVER. Sometimes years. In my experience, it happens when things are at peace and everything seems to be going so well. That's when it hits.

There's a subtle equilibrium in the universe. If it gets misplaced, fate will bring it back to center. I can't say how many times I've seen fate hit those who dared play with that subtle balance.

Even Newton discovered it: "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction."

Nowadays, I pray for those individuals because I know, fate will not spare them as much as I would like them to be spared. And it grieves my heart knowing this.

Gosh, did I get all serious on you? LOL Okay, party at my house, 8pm sharp! I'm serving hot chocolate! Whoo-hoo! :)

Cassie Mae said...

You know, you'd think I'd be a better person since I believe in Karma yet I still cut people off on the freeway.

Angela Cothran said...

Oh, I SOOO believe in Karma, but I like to call it by another name...The Law of the Harvest :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Love, love, love those quotes! I'm so stealing the Steve jobs one.

Lucy Adams said...

We all call on karma at some point, the good and the bad kind.

Happy A to Z,
Lucy

You get what you give. Amen, sister. It's out there. The universe, the spirit, all of the energy you create.

When I was in high school, there was a Cathy cartoon that made an impression. "We become what we laugh at." I have seen this become true, over and over, so I am always careful about how I treat others. I want good Karma to come around!

Diane, director of marketing said...

I enjoyed reading your blog today - first time as a visitor from A-Z. Great quotes about Karma! Thanks for visiting my blog at www.dianeweidenbenner.com Happy blogging!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I love that quote about the "list." :)

Kelly Stilwell said...

Now, now. Some of these comments are about karma and getting back. Don't hold on to that old anger, there's not enough time in life to worry about getting back! Love the Jobs quote, and this blog is fabulous!! Do wish I hadn't read "J" as I'm getting scuba certified soon...

Krista McLaughlin said...

Karma definitely exists. My boss laughed at me for dropping the milk lid on the floor at work. A few minutes later... he dropped the whole gallon and it got all over him. Karma. :)

Janna said...

I've always believed in karma. You defintely get what you give, even if the good and bad return is your own conscience.

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

I don't believe in karma. I do believe in revenge. So if you wrong someone, then their loved ones will come and kick your ass. That's not karma. But it sure does make a person feel better.

J.L. Campbell said...

Sometimes, I wonder how it is that people who do awful things seem to thrive, but then I'm probably not around when they're getting theirs.

Jackie said...

Great post and quotes!

Stacy Jensen said...

Love the quotes and the graphics too (especially the last one). Oops. That could be bad karma.

Fairview said...

Love your 'K' word. Karma - I like to believe it exists.

Leslie Rose said...

My granny was all about Karma, but she just didn't know it. She must have said, "What comes around, goes around," at least two million times.

Jack said...

Awesome post, Leigh! I quoted it on my blog today!
