$20,000 scratch off
A week before I got The Secret in my hands, I was searching book stores unknowing trying to find this book. I checked out hundreds of books from “better your finances” to “staying positive” and none of them I sat down to read, were what I was seeking for. One evening I was at my friends chatting with her and she referred “The Secret” to me right before I left. I’ve read this book at least 3 times in the past month and I watch the movie almost every night before I go to sleep.
Three weeks ago I kept telling myself, “I’m going to get $20,000 in the next month.” I imagined myself winning it, cashing it out and making a money order to pay off my student loan. Then a week ago I kept saying “I’m going to get $20,000 on October 7th by winning my favourite scratch off at the gas station I work next to.”
Yesterday was the 7th but I’m not $20,000 richer. Why? I left work in a hurry [big mistake] and didn’t even think to stop next door to buy my $2 scratch off. Late last night, a friend of mine who works at the gas station announced someone won $20,000 on the scratch off I always buy. That was the only one they sold all day. I was devastated. I knew that should have been me.
The next morning [today] as I was driving to work, I finally forgave myself after a horrible nights rest and my eyes started to fill up with tears. I was hit with so much happiness that I didn’t even care. I’m happy whoever got that scratch off because I know they needed it more than I did. At least I can say I know it was really there and that The Secret really does work. I’m always in a hurry even when I tell myself to slow down, so I don’t build up bad events in front of me. Well I did that and lesson learned.
