KARMA~WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND by Denise Vasquez

I had this great conversation with my mom the other night!


God, I love my mom...sooo much, it's beyond words...


She is the most inspiring, positive, giving, intelligent, hard working, beautiful, spiritual person I know...


She is everything I aspire to be...


I communicate with my mom pretty much every other day...


We talk about life & we always love sharing stories of things we've experienced along the way...


The other night, we had this amazing conversation about "KARMA"...


We explored the possibilities of trying to understand why people do what they do...


Some people do the most arrogant things for whatever reasons...


...insecurity, jealousy, self gratification, attention, reassurance...


What some people might not realize or understand is that a person's acts in this moment, their behavior, establishes who they are, and their actions good or bad will affect them if not now, later....


"What Comes Around Goes Around"


Ahhhh Karma...


I've lived it, and seen it & so has my mom!


So the other night, my mom & I shared stories about many times where we've seen someones' actions, come back to haunt them in some cases!


The universe has a way of finding us...


You can run, but you can't hide!


My mom & I reminisced about how many times we've seen "Karma" in effect...


My mom experienced something recently & shared a story, which is the perfect example of what I'm talking about!


I would like to share with you...


My mom was at work in her office...


She is the VP (Vice President) for the company she works for...


She heard someone yelling & causing a commotion from outside of her office & when she poked her head out to see what was going on, she saw someone yelling at her clerks & bossing them around...


My mom's secretary looked at her puzzled & my mom asked her "Who is that?!? The secretary said "I have no idea"...


My mom walked over calmly thinking to herself "no one yells at my clerks, or talks to them in that manner, nor does some stranger have the right to enter this office & delegate them duties when they already have them..."


So my mom approaches this person and calmly says "Excuse me, who are you?"


Well the girl gets all getto & gets up in my mom's face...


Mind you, my mom is a Professional woman, in her early 60's, VERY educated (honestly I can't even keep up with the amount of degrees my moms has), who's worked hard all of her life to get to where she is, she's the most patient, understanding person I know, she raised my sister & I on her own...and she happens to be a confident, beautiful, latin woman...


Maybe the girl thought that since my mom was a latin woman, she was no one important...who really knows where this person was coming from?!?




So the girl gets up in my mom's face and starts yelling at my mom all street like that she needs to have all this work done, she's needs the clerks to help her & do it now, and that she's a "TEMP"...


For those of you that don't know what a "TEMP" is, that is someone who is hired by the company to work "temporary" day by day, and sometimes if you're a good worker & the company likes you, it can lead to a permanent position...


So this "TEMP" is yelling in my mom's face...


My mom being the person that she is just looked the girl eye to eye and calmly said


"Excuse me, you have no idea who you are talking to"


The girl continued yelling while walking away...


So a month goes by...


My mom's company is hiring...


A phone call comes through to my moms office...


The voice at the other end is trying super hard to sound "extra Sweet", overly sweet, believe me, my mom can pick up on the fake ones...


We always discuss how we can see fake people coming from a mile away, maybe it's from living in New York City...


Lets call it "Street Smarts"...


My mom picks up on the overly sweet voice & listens intently...


The voice asked if she could speak to someone who no longer worked there...


Then she mentioned that she saw they were hiring & was interested in the job...


My mom told her that she would be the one hiring...


So the girl jumps in and says "oh well I worked at your company as a TEMP"...


My mom says "Really?"


So the girl continues talking about what her "Duties" where while she was working as a TEMP there...


It registered with my mom...


OMG, the person on the other line, asking me for a job, is that TEMP who caused a commotion in my department a month ago and got up in my face...


So my mom calmly interrupts the girl on the other line and says


"Excuse me, you have no idea who you are talking to"


The girl hung up that phone so fast!


My mom and I laughed so hard!


Isn't it funny how the universe works...


"What Comes Around Goes Around"




So the next time you're going to do something, you might want to think before you do!
