Three weeks and BOOM!

Where to start?!? After I broke up with my girlfriend of two years almost two months ago, I thought my life was over. I was so so down and upset all the time. I just couldn't handle anything and everything in my life was so terrible and horrible. One night, I was procrastinating and couldn't concentrate on any uni work and I remembered we had a copy of The Secret so I decided to watch it. Since then, everything has changed.
My grades are so much better than I ever expected now. I used to tell myself, when receiving grades "I would like a B but its okay if I don't get it." I used to say that to stop myself getting disappointed when I got bad grades and so, so often I would get Bs or below. After watching The Secret, I started saying to myself "I would really love to get ...." and not letting myself believe I could get anything lower. And it worked every time!! First, I got 95/100 for an Anthropology assignment. Last week I got 72 for a History essay, which may not sound that amazing but I have struggled with History this year and it is the highest grade I've gotten for a History essay this year. Then just now, I got an 80 (A-) for an Anthropology essay. I am so happy.
I also really needed friends around me to support me through this hard time and they have just come to me. My best friend from high school who I haven't seen in so long has started texting me all the time and we have been meeting up regularly. I have been walking around uni and randomly bumped in to people I haven't seen for a long time and have them ask me out to lunch right then and there. There are all these people who I haven't seen in so long who have suddenly appeared and wanting to see me all the time!
In the past few days, I’d been struggling with some deadlines coming up for University and been stressing about them but this very morning after listening to some of The Secret, I started telling myself I have all the time in the world, and plenty of time to finish these assignments. And when I arrived home from University this evening, there was an email from my lecturer giving the whole class a two day extension!!! I hadn't even asked specifically for that but the universe answered!
I am really starting to understand how the LOA works! It is making my life so much better! I feel so much happier all the time and I am attracting all sorts of people and things to my life that are just making it so much better. I am so so so thankful for finding The Secret because I think I would probably be very very lost and depressed still without it!
