Win some, Lose some

For the past few months I've notice this strange luck I've been having. It's not quite karma or divine intervention but something in between the two. For every action that takes place in my life there is a... consequence. Something, that returns everything to a neutral ground. It feels weird. First I get lucky with something but then later on I stumble and fall or vice versa. For example:

I caught a flu a while back that gave me a cough and a sore throat so I thought to myself that I should get something to drink. I went to buy a 6 bottle stack of cola from the nearby market plus some food and the cashier forgot to charge me for the cola. I noticed this after I got home and was in no mood to return to pay for them.

Way before the flu when I was working as a mover (I'm not sure if this is the right term... we got paid for moving furniture etc etc... not repomen lol) I broke my elbow and had to get a cast and was suddenly without a job. Then out of the blue this guy I hardly know calls me and reminds me that he owes me a favor. He was kind enough to offer me a job. Even a better one I had before because being a salesman is something I am interested in. Now I sell men's clothes at a multinational gentlemen's store called Dressmann and couldn't be happier.

Another thing that happened was that I dislocated the knuckle of my right hand pinkie by hitting a garbage can made entirely of metal. It hurt like a mother****er let me tell ya. I did it because I was angry (believe it or not) about not having a girlfriend. But then like a week after that I met the girl of my dreams.


See where I'm going with this? There have been so many things like this happening it's hard to keep track of them all. I'm not even superstitious or anything but this shit is pretty weird.

If you have any idea what something like this is called please tell me! Also... share your own experiences. I'm dying to hear if you've faced similar moments in your life.

Cheers!

  8. I heard somewhere that "Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it." I might be wrong though, lol.

  9. Karma does not exactly work as a boomerang, but more importantly its a nice change to see someone get some positive reactions. Glad to hear about your success.

  12. Life always balances itself out, you know like Yin and Yang, always in proportion. We've had a whole subject dedicated to this matter in school.

  20. Sounds like I might need to break something cause I need some good luck.
    Although I did sprain my ankle (see my blog for a picture), maybe that'll do the trick.

  21. Life is what you make it.
    What some consider misery, others consider happiness.
    Something to think about.

  22. that's life for you. very seldomly do you get a long string of good or bad luck.

  23. I tend to always see it as if something bad has happened in the past, and something good is happening now or has happened since, then said bad thing actually turned out to be beneficial because without it the good event would not have happened.
