I love myself for the first time

I sit here in tears of joy!
I don't remember how I attracted The Secret to me! I know I wanted to buy it for my sister and a friend for Christmas so they could "find themselves", and I ended up getting one for me and just started reading it. Not realizing that I was the one that needed to find myself.
My husband and I had decided that having me stay home to take care of the kids was better for them. Loved the first few months, but then I started devaluing myself, feeling depressed, unappreciated! By then I had started watching my niece, so I had two toddlers to take care of and an 8 year old. My niece and son started being so bad, my son was hitting, my niece will cry all day, and I was going insane! Depressed, hating my life, myself, and many times had thoughts of ending my life.
One night I was reading The Secret, the part about loving ourselves. I closed my eyes and saw myself hugging myself and loving me! Might sound weird, but that is how I visualized it. I cried, because I had never felt that much love for myself! I had always battled with weight issues. But I love myself so much and accept myself, and I shall ask and I shall receive!
The Secret has changed my life! I didn't realize how much negative energy I have had around me all my life! And I cry to realize that my kids behavior wasn't them - it was me!! I was bringing all this negative energy around me and them!
Now they are the sweetest little angels, they listen, don't hit, they only cry when they fall etc. The relationship with my husband is better than ever, because when he complements me I know it's true. Before I wouldn't believe, but now I know it is true!
I know this is just the beginning of my true life! I am thankful for all involved in making The Secret. It all makes sense now!
