The Secret gives me STRENGTH
It's been almost two years since my introduction to The Secret and it has worked well for me. But today I was kind of sad, and was feeling as if nothing is working out right, although my life is going great in terms of work, family, friends, and love. But maybe my mood was just not great, and I knew if I would stay sad like this I would attract more of it and spoil the rest of my day. So I started reading some stories here on the website. And suddenly something struck me that I should write a letter to the universe, as writing always makes me realize what actually I am going through.
So, I started to write about my life from where I remember, and while I was writing I realized how The Secret has changed my life and turned it upside down, which gave me so much strength and filled my face with a huge smile, and within a few seconds I am smiling again and now sharing that story here.
It was 2009, and I was freshly introduced to The Secret. I made a wish list on the 1st of January 2009, for the new year.
2008 had been a really rough year for me, as my four year long boyfriend had dumped me and I was totally into a depression and nothing was helping and he was just not coming back. Everyone said that we were really immature when we entered this relationship (we were fourteen) and that is the reason why we ended it. But I just knew one thing - that I loved him and whatever love meant to me at that time, I felt that way for him. So the two major wishes that year in my wish list were:
1. To bring my boyfriend back and fill my life with so much love.
2. A USA trip
I wanted to go to the USA to visit my aunt, as I knew a change in environment would help, but because of some reason the trip was made and cancelled four times, which had left no hope in me. In my wish list I wrote along with my second wish, "Or any other foreign trip."
Well, I was doubtful for sure, but something amazing happened - my dad made a vacation plan for Thailand in June 2009, and I thought, "Okay, a new place, any change in environment would help me." When I saw my wish list, I put a small tick along with this wish and cancelled the USA trip and went on to Thailand for two weeks. I had forgotten about my wish to go to the USA, and I was happy and moving on, and while on that trip I wrote how I would want to be loved, and I didn't miss my boyfriend but the person he was.
And the next few weeks were miraculous.
As I returned from Thailand, my aunt called from the USA to say that she had bought a new house and I had to come for their house warming. Within nine days my tickets were booked and I flew to the USA. I was so thrilled that I opened up my wish list again and saw the cancelled line and had tears in my eyes.
And while I was on the flight to the USA, I read my horoscope in some magazine. It said,
"All the stars will align to make the perfect love story for you this summer, and you will be extremely happy."
Well, I usually just read these things for fun, but this seemed to be like a message from the universe, and something inside me made me believe in it.
And guess what, I went to my aunt's place where one of my cousin's friends was staying, and we fell in love and he was exactly what I had written and imagined my ex boyfriend to be. He loved me, we had so much fun, and it was actually like a fairy tale and the best summer I had ever had. He loved me, pampered me, always appreciated me, and adored me, which my ex-boyfriend had never done.
And while going back to India, I again looked at my wish list and felt, "Well, God fulfilled my wish in a better way than what I had imagined, and my ex-boyfriend dumping me was a good thing as he never deserved me and someone else deserved me, and more happiness was waiting for me." I got all the logic as to why it all happened.
And it's been almost two years of our relationship, my boyfriend has shifted to India, and we are so much in love and planning to getting married soon.
I just got all the strength back from my very own "Secret."
Thank you Rhonda for making my life beautiful and worth living.
