4/26/12 Thrilling Thursday
Thrilling Thursday-while it may seem thrilling to laugh at the misfortune of those we do not like,but keep in mind, there are those who do not like us. Recently I was involved in an incident with a neighbor that led to serious consequences for the neighbor. This neighbor had done some bad things, some irritating things, some illegal things. As a result, the neighbor is now facing some serious problems, life altering problems. There are some who would be happy about the misery my neighbor is now experiencing. They would say, "don't do the crime if you can't do the time and pay the fine." I am a little different. I recognize that in different ways and to different degrees, we all do things that irritate others, that make others want to wring our necks. There are always people waiting for us to fall so they can laugh at us getting our due. So, in the spirit of you reap what you sow, or karma or what goes around comes around, do not glory in the misfortune of others. Instead, think of something good you did or are doing and find happiness in that. Do not find joy in the misfortune of others, instead, find joy in your own accomplishments.
