The Best is Yet to Come
from Saskatchewan, Canada
For the past six months I have been questioning why I live my life the way I do, and why isn't there a better way to earn a living? There has to be something out there that suits my criteria, I'm just not satisfied doing what I am doing. Then I had noticed my neck was sore (which I thought was due to the number of pillows I sleep with) for about 6 weeks, I went to the Doctor and he sent me for an x-ray which prompted an MRI. I have been referred to a neurosurgeon to discuss surgery options, and to date I am waiting for the appointment. This is where the story becomes amazing.
One of our children lives approximately 1000 miles away from home. We had been noticing a lack of contact, infrequent phone calls, or just not returning messages, etc. As a mother you have that instinct when one of your young is hurting. My husband & I knew there was something wrong with our child. My husband made a surprise visit only to discover the problem was related to an addiction to prescription drugs. A friend of our child's was doing her best to get the treatment to the addict without success. She called me and we came up with a plan to get him home.
This is how I came into touch with The Secret... Utterly AMAZING. She sent along the DVD, my son was so sick detoxing he couldn't concentrate on the DVD, so my husband and I watched it hoping it would give us the tools to help in his recovery. We both cried throughout the DVD & at the end. That was yesterday. I called my other 3 children, told them to go and buy the DVD and when they have watched it to call me. 2 are watching it tonight.
All I can think about today is putting all the principles into action - it has reaffirmed my faith in many areas of my life. First, I am so grateful that my son trusted in me to come home and brought the DVD. He has agreed to watch it with me today and I know it will inspire him to keep his goal in mind.
In some ways I was already using a few of the principles. I was putting it out to the universe I wanted something better, and I was given The Secret... WOW!!!
I visualized myself helping people and saving stray animals, etc. Today a young child fell off his bike in front of my house and was slow in getting up. I went outside to see if he needed some help but he said he was fine. I watched him attempt to ride off, but his bike wasn't allowing it. He turned and looked to see if I was still there, so I then went up to him. His chain was off, and I helped him fix it. I know why he fell off his bike in front of my house and not the neighbors. I knew events happen for a reason, but did not understand until I watched The Secret.
Talk about timing. I called the local movie store to see if they have a copy of the DVD and to my amazement they do. Can you imagine all of this within 24 hours of viewing the film? I can't wait to get the book!
