I have this theory that for every piece of gum I throw on the ground, I will step in a piece of gum. I don’t have any scientific proof that this is a thing but I fully believe it to be true based on my experience. Needless to say, I don’t throw gum anywhere but the trash can. (Side note: as a dog owner I hold the same theory about not picking up your dog’s poop off the sidewalk!)You see, the universe has this funny way of giving you what you give it. It’s simple; if you put positive energy out, you will get it back. If you treat others with kindness and respect, you will receive the same in return. If you throw your gum on the ground (which is a crappy thing to do, by the way) you can guarantee that some day soon you will lift up your brand new kicks and there will be a giant wad of dirty gum stuck to it.
I fully believe in karma. From the simplest act of throwing my gum on the ground to the way I treat others to the things I do when no one else is looking. It’s something you are fully in control of: it’s your attitude, your mindset and your actions.
Do you keep stepping in gum? Maybe you should look inward and see if what you’re receiving in life is due to what you’re putting out there.
