Karma is something I believe in strongly, the idea around the word has always fascinated me. It basically means if you go about your life performing good deeds, you will be rewarded for it.
This is something I really take to heart I don’t want to be the person that just gets what they want with out working for it, if I haven’t worked for something I receive then I do not deserve it.
When I really want something I am willing to go above and beyond to get it. A great example of this is with my writing I want to be a journalist, author and poet, but I wont get there from sitting on my bum doing nothing, so I started this blog to write more so I could showcase my talent.
However I also work in other ways to build up my good karma, like holding doors open for people, helping people out and even just smiling at people. Earlier this year I surpassed myself with kindness when I saw a lady crying on a bus.
She came on the bus with her baby and her six year old for their journey home. Everything was fine until these two people started to accuse her of being on drugs right on front of her children, for the record she clearly wasn’t on drugs, naturally this lady got really upset and started to cry. It just happened that this was they day I had been filming Perfect Looking Glass and had a rose with me. Immediately I got up and handed it to her and made her day.
My good karma must have shot up to another level that day because not long after something really exciting happened to me. I was approached by a lady at Young Scot who wanted me to write about a fashion event that Zero Waste Scotland is hosting.
Of course I was more than willing, but today I found out that I will be assistant reporter for fashion blogger, stylist and journalist Ann Russell who will be mentoring me for the day. Not only that but I get to work with a PR to get my piece up to scratch for the young scot website, also possible the Zero Waste Scotland website.
An opportunity that fell in to my lap just as I decided on my future career can be no coincidence. Thank you karma! This is most definitely the perfect start to my journalistic career.
