I found happiness
from Dublin, Ireland
I have walked around this earth for 32 years in search of something. I never knew what it was. I had not found it. I have a history of depression and panic attacks.
My mother sent me the book "The Secret" and I blew it off. Then one day I thought I would just read some and see if it was really 'bs'. That day changed my life. I read a little every day until I really began to wonder if this is what was missing in my life. I began to really pay attention to what I was reading.
One morning I woke up happy. I had a smile on my face right out of bed. The first thing I thought was, "Thank You". I continued my day like this. Being grateful for what I had in front of me and what I have always. I cried tears of JOY for the first time in a long time just holding my son and saying thank you over and over.
I have not felt angry or depressed or cried from depression since that day. I have gotten annoyed, sure, but I quickly take a deep breath and move on. I have NEVER gotten over things that annoy me as quickly as I do now. I now say Thank you for what it is that brings my attention back to how I should be feeling. I have found my happiness.
