After I retired, of course my income decreased and so I thought about what I would do to make things a little easier for my lifestyle. I was leasing a car at the time. It was a beautiful car and I knew my lease was up so it was time to return the car. Well, I made up my mind that since I had an older van that my husband had been driving, that I didn’t need another car, but loved the fact that it was a beautiful new car and really hated to let it go. I did.
Everyday, I would ride around in this older van and I would see all the new cars and kept saying to myself, “boy I want another new car.” Everyday I’d see a beautiful car and I continued to say that for days, for at least two weeks.
I was on the internet one night and I went to Oprah’s website and you can submit stories and they were asking if you know a hero, submit a story about him. So I said, I know someone I believe is a real hero and I wrote this story about him on her site, it was 3am. So, about one week later, on Nov 7 at 4pm, I received an email from Oprah’s producers to be on the show and to bring my hero.
Well the rest is history because that was her Ultimate Favorite things show and I ended up with a brand new 2012 VW Beetle and without a car note…no taxes, just free in clear. It’s that wonderful… it was The Secret that brought me the car… I just kept thinking to myself, how wonderful it would be to have a new car, constantly, almost everyday and putting it out there in the universe. And believing I could have it. It happened…..
