You and I have been physically given two hands and two legs and half-decent brains. Some people have not been born like that for a reason. The karma is working from another lifetime. I have nothing to hide about that. It is not only people with disabilities. What you sow, you have to reap.
Once I turned pro, I was like,’ OK, this is not fun and games now. This is me. I’m going to come, and I work on karma. I’m not going to go after somebody if I don’t have a reason behind it, so as soon as there is some sort of a reason for me to do something that I need to do, then I’ll do it.’

I guess one of the ways that karma works is that it finds out what you are most afraid of and then makes that happen eventually.

Even though my first marriage broke up, I’d say that I’ve had two good marriages and two good men. I’ve been very lucky. I like to think it’s karma because, in a relationship, I give 300 per cent. I’m straight with my men, and I like to think it comes back.
