The Secret gave me my life back.

I am someone who has grown up with a general pessimistic point of view. My parents did the best they could (I see now), but I still grew up thinking that life was just hard and we had no control. I felt very depressed. There has to be something else out there that could save me.
So at the age of 12 my mother introduced me to religion because she saw me reading the bible. I thought that maybe that could tell me why I feel this way. She had someone come over every week and study with me. Although it was the best change I have ever had, I was still a depressed person.
Seeing no other way out, I got married at the age of 21 and had my first child at the age of 22. Thinking that this would help me to feel good about myself. It did not. I got deeper into depression and actually had thoughts of suicide on an every day basis. I felt my child would be better off without me. I got on anti depressants and that still did not help. I had another child two years later and was soon divorced.
About two years later I re-married to a wonderful man, and two years after that had another child. I got a job and worked there for six long years. I still felt empty. I felt lost and I knew there had to be more out there. During the course of working there, I had another boy (four boys in all!) and it was okay. One day I just decided to move out of the bay area. I was tired and did not want to be there anymore. I saw myself living further out and so I moved. I don't know what got into me, but I just had to get out.
Soon after that I found The Secret. My mom had given me the book and the daily teachings claiming that it did not work. I started reading it and was amazed. Finally here was something that proved that there was something else out there. That I could control what I wanted. It proved that I was not crazy in thinking that there has to be a better way. I soon bought the movie and watched it every day. It gave me the strength and the happiness that I have been craving for all of my life. It gave me a reason to want to live. It gave me the control over my life.
My husband lost his job the same week I found The Secret. But for the first time I did not panic. I knew that it would be okay! And it was! It was the best thing to ever happen! We all of a sudden became financially better than we had ever been. I imagined and believe we would better off and we were.
I used The Secret daily teachings every day and just amazing things happened. I bought the CD and listened to it every day going to and coming from work. I realized my job was not what I wanted either. I developed carpel tunnel in both wrists and both arms became damaged. My boss was abusive and I could not take the pain anymore. I asked the universe for a large sum of money so that I could be at home with my children and not further damage my body. I took the first step in faith and quit my job. I am still waiting for my large sum of money, but nothing has given more joy to get out of the bed every morning but The Secret.
So my gratitude and my deepest of heartfelt thanks goes to you for giving this to the world, and to me. Thank you for giving me a reason to smile and look forward to the next day. I know, like I know, like I know (lol) that everything will be more than great.
Thank you for the joy I feel and happiness that I can share with my family and with others. Most importantly, thank you for the love I feel for everyone and everything.
Thank you, thank you for saving my life.
