Living Life Well: Make Your Bed
Gems for living a life of wellness. Lessons I have learned, or am learning, during this crazy journey through life.
Every action you take, every decision you make, everything you do causes an immediate effect on those around you–and on you. And this is the important bit. There is such a thing as instant karma. It is your bed, and you are going to have to lie in it. Therefore: Choose How You Make Your Bed!
Your actions will dictate whether in general your life is going to run happily or badly, smoothly or as if the wheels have fallen off. If you are selfish and manipulative, it will rebound on you. If you are generally loving and thoughtful, you will get your just rewards–and not in heaven (or the next life or whatever you believe) but right here, right now.
Trust me. Whatever you do and how you do it will come back to you in spades. This isn’t a threat for living. It’s an observation. It’s happened to me time and time again. Those who do good, get good. Those who do bad, get bad.
I know we can all point to people who seem to have it made and are still pretty vile. But, trust me, they don’t sleep well at night, if at all. They have no one to really love them.
Inside they are sad and lonely and frightened. Those who go around sharing a bit of love and kindness get rewarded with the same coming back.
So be careful how you make your bed. What goes around, comes around. There is instant karma. What you sow you reap. Better to stand up and be counted right from the start. Do the right thing, every time. You know what it is. Then when you get in the bed you’ve made, not only will you be able to sleep at night, but you’ll sleep the sleep of the just.
