Forgive me for being oblique, here.
Someone I know is going through a particularly tough time right now. The who and the what... those things aren't relevant to the point I want to make, so you'll forgive me if I don't explain any further.
Needless to say, it's a situation where I want to help, to do whatever I can... and unfortunately, my options are a bit limited, now, for any of a number of reasons.
That happens, sometimes. It can be difficult to lend a meaningful hand, despite the best of intentions.
So, instead, and if you wouldn't mind... I'd just like you to take a few moments out of your day, today, to either think some positive thoughts my friend's way, or better still, I'd like for you to do something nice for a friend of yours. Any friend will do.
It does not have to be me, mind. ;)
But it can be anything. Really. Let them know how you are. Ask how they're doing. Suggest a night out.
Or make a donation to charity.
It really doesn't matter. Just... if you don't believe in karma, then pretend that you do, for one day, and pass some positive thoughts our way.
