A Downward Spiral
Before being diagnosed with crippling rheumatoid arthritis six years ago, I was the typical working wonder mom. The family depended on me for everything from washing their clothes to planning vacations. I did it all. Then everything changed. I became more tired and I was in pain constantly. Doctors could not find what was wrong with me. I was forced to resign from my job because I found myself virtually unable to get out of bed in the morning due to the fatigue and pain. By the time I was finally diagnosed, my life, marriage, and family was spiraling dangerously out of control.
I heard about The SECRET. Out of curiosity, I bought the book. It inspired me from the very first page. I could not put it down, it felt like food for my starving soul. I had heard person after person tell me, “Oh just stay positive, everything will work out”. Time after time these words fell on deaf ears, blah.. blah…blah.. I thought if only they knew how it felt to have lost your life, who you were is gone, and all that is left is a useless shell of a body that does nothing but bring you pain. I admit it, I was lost in self pity.
But something in the book touched me and made me really want to try this. For the first time in a long time, I had hope. One of the biggest financial trials facing us was money for college for my son. I started thanking the universe (God) for taking care of it, and visualized checks coming in the mail. In fact I walked into the house yesterday and asked my husband, “Where is the check for Danny?”. It was not in the mail yesterday, but it came today! In the mailbox was a tax return check for my son, he had paid too much tax last year and his boss decided to file a return for him. He barely remembered signing it!
Then, I had been trying to rent out a week at our vacation spot in Mexico that we had not used for years. Each interested person said that I was asking too much. Today, someone who had told me that she could get the place cheaper from someone else, emailed me and told me that she just felt it was right to rent from me, even if I was asking more than the other person!!! So we received around $1000 today thanks to the power of the Secret.
Now I am starting my wish Board and taping the paper $1000 dollar bill over our bed !! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. The Secret is working for me and my family.
