A Blissful Day.
I woke up this morning feeling good about myself. I told myself what I’m grateful for and smiled for a minute in bed. I said, “Today is going to be a good day.” I laid there and let the noise of the fan push me off into sleep again, oh no! I overslept! I woke up at 6:52 at first, then again at 7:44! My 8 o’clock class was a 20 minute drive away minus traffic. I started to doubt myself, “No way you’ll make it on time, great going Je–” there I caught myself. “No! You won’t be late. You are happy that you made it on time. Tell yourself that.” I repeated it and repeated it on the drive to class and I was not even speeding. This drive was meant to be a 22 minute drive but somehow I made it in 18 minutes.
Later on I was headed to work after class. My mind began to wander on the drive to work. ‘Man Jeff, you’ve got that fat car insurance bill tomorrow, you’re not going to–‘ again, I caught myself. ‘I’m happy I have the money to pay for it without having to use my savings. I’m very grateful for my job, my work ethic, I’ve got this.’ I went to open my check at work, I was thinking, ‘I am happy I have $200 on this check. That is what it’s going to be.’ I open it and it’s double what I expected, $396! I just smiled confidentially and exhaled.
That is The Secret and I just started reading the book last night! I can’t wait to finish it and watch the movie! I also can’t wait to apply this to the other trials in my life. I’ve always been a positive person about my past after doing motivational speaking and being on advisory boards to advocate foster care. Yet still I wish I knew The Secret before but I’m very grateful I know it now! I’m happy!
