“Karma has a way of working. She may be slow and silent, but eventually she comes calling. And when she does, she pays back in spades. You can lie to yourself, your friends, your neighbors, and your family, but you can’t lie to Karma. And she’s a wicked bitch.”
I posted those words on my Facebook page last night and stand by them. Personally, I’ve never once claimed to be a perfect human being. I’ve made my fair share of mistakes and committed my fair share of wrongdoings, but one thing I know for certain is that my conscience is clear in terms of purposefully hurting others.
In my past, I’ve made mistakes, and through the years, I’ve tried to rectify those mistakes by becoming a better person. In my career, I’ve stumbled a few times, but I’ve always gotten back to my feet and continued fighting forward. I don’t depend on anyone for anything.
I’ve said before, my spirit has been reforged in the fires of hell, and I’ve seen myself stripped bare, naked and stark in the bright light of loneliness, and from that moment of truth, I don’t fear my Karma. I have lived and will continue to live my life in a manner that allows me to look myself in the mirror every morning and feel good about the person I am. I’m not perfect. But I am a decent, hard-working person who strives to live a good life.
