It may be winter, but it's harvest time up in here.



You know, I tried not to do it.
I really would like to be one of those extremely forgiving, zen people. One of those people who does not derive pleasure from seeing Karma bite people in their butts.
But when those people have been just utterly vile and horrible to me and my family.....I can't help but be quite pleased to see them get knocked off of their high horses.
Hard.
I'm just not at that enlightened state of consciousness that would allow me to feel sorry for these people, or not giggle maniacally a little bit at their misfortune.
Because these people have been viciously nasty to me for years. They have pretended to be so very superior to me. And I knew, all along, that they were fake. I was secure in my knowledge that I was not the horrible mother or evil person they portrayed me to be. And that their day would come. I even tried to warn them.
But they did not listen. They just went on their miserable little way, doing what they did best.
And now....it's come full circle.
Oh, they won't change. They'll keep running their mouths. Pretending to be better. Wondering why life keeps kicking them in the ass. They'll never learn.


*Random Acts of Kindness was cancelled this week so that I could be b*tchy. It will return next week. I'll put some extra money in the Salvation Army bucket to make up for it, promise!*

I hope you're right because there are two people who come to mind who over the last couple of years have made my life hell. I don't want them hurt, I just want them humbled.

Karma is SWEET revenge that you had nothing to do with. And doesn't it feel good to sit back and enjoy the show?!
What goes around, comes around, eventually.

Hehe. I know what you mean. It is hard not to gloat when someone deserves it so. ;)

Just so you know, karma is huge in the Buddhist faith. So in a way, your belief in karma is very Zen and enlightened. Also, being enlightened and compassionate doesn't mean you have to feel bad for or love everybody - especially when they've been crappy to you and yours. But to take a moment out of your day (I call it meditative empathizing) to put yourselves in their shoes and try to understand why possibly they could be so evil and awful, is really good for your soul and in forgiveness. Finally, understanding human dysfunction, ego, etc. is always helpful.

Preaching done :) I just wanted you to know that I think you're a very kind and compassionate person and that just because you're happy to see karma working, doesn't mean you're any less of a person <3

I can't imagine you being in any way mean or evil. I don't think a small smile of satisfaction is unwarranted.

I don't blame you one bit for relishing a bit. Especially when they've been not so nice.

Well written! I feel very much the same way about a few "lovely" people I know. It will definitely come back to them. Don't you just love karma? ; )

HA! You cancelled it to be bitchy! I love it! Thanks for following my blog :)

It's alright to be bitchy once in awhile especially if it's about people getting their comeuppance.
