Karmic question

Normally, when bad things happen, I shrug them off as just part of the normality of life’s grand adventure. When strings of unpleasant occurrences enter my life, I start to question my karma and usually the answer appears to me eventually. It all started almost three weeks ago. I came down with this awful flu like thing…nothing too out of the ordinary to start. Though, it did take full force on a Friday….what a bummer way to start a weekend…so I was unhappy. The flu left my body Saturday but I still felt horrible. My body ached and I was sore all over. I went to the doctor and was told I was fighting a low level infection. They sent me on my way in such a way that I thought maybe I was being a whiner.

I was back in the doctor’s office the next day with an unrelated infection….for which they put me on antibiotics. It was about this time that I started to think I had done something wrong and my accumulated karma was punishing me. My husband seemed to agree considering this was a busy time at work (really bad time to be sick) and it was Valentine’s Day. I started taking vitamins….downing large doses in an effort to ward off more problems.

In the next week, I lost a glove (part of a pair that I have had for years and that I absolutely love to wear….dark red velvet…and they were a bargain find). I lost my pedometer (a recent and much enjoyed gift from my husband). I had a string of unfortunate occurrences at work that ended Friday with my boss in my office and me in tears. Do I ever hate to cry…..much less at work in front of the boss!

All of this (and there is more that I won’t put in because I don’t want to bore you nor do I want you to think me a whiner…which you might already…lol) has caused me to question my karma. What in the world have I not made right that has caused such a compressed series of unfortunate events? It could be worse…I know and I am thankful that it is not. But if, after almost three weeks, I don’t know what I did or didn’t do and I don’t fix it won’t this just continue? I have visions of that show “My name is Earl”…lol.

I hope that it is not any of the grand plans that my husband has been making. I really don’t want to give up the dryer.

I can understand about the whole karma thing (btw, saw the topic and thought I should say hello, soooo... hello , sometimes it seem that nothing goes right and then, somehow it corrects itself. The problem is, some of us spend our whole lives paying off karma not from this life, but the problems from prior lives (which explains a good chunk of my life, lol). I feel that we meet people over and over again in different incarnations until we work out our karmic responsibilities, then once that is done, we can move on... perhaps to another realm of possibility (traditionally a type of afterlife, but perhaps another universe) or starting again with new sets of people to annoy for another few life times. Again, I can completely empathise/sympathise, seems like the past couple of years (except for a stretch of 4 months in Australia), not a lot has gone right, but I understand things could have been much worse, and then I wonder how kind the universe has really been. Perplexing... I am sure I will understand... when I dont need to anymore.
