A new car
I am 39 and the past 5 years have been the biggest years of transition in my life. Going through divorce in 2007, was laid off twice, and because of the bad economy could not find stability.
Just in the past 2 years did I start to find my way back with a stable job and a stable place to live. My boys are happy. I have always made them number 1. However, from the past my credit is totally shot. I had a brand new Nissan, which I had to trade in for a 2001 92,000 miles Kia Sephia, which was already in poor condition, just in order to get money to pay rent.
Here I am 4 years later with my Kia and it has now 192,000 miles on it. It has taken me through my roughest times, but it is also having many issues. I have tried to get a used car financed about a year ago, which was impossible with my low credit score.
About 2 months ago now, my boyfriend introduced me to The Secret, which he was watching every day. I watched it and completely “got it” what it was about. We went and purchased The Magic book and one chapter at a time, I started reading it. I am not yet finished. I started putting it in practice one chapter at a time.
Three weeks ago, I told my kids and my boyfriend that I will have a new car in 2 weeks. Every day I open my eyes, and thank God and the Universe for what I have and will have. Every day I envisioned a new car in the drive way. I had no idea how to even go about this when I said I will have a new car. With no money and bad credit it seemed impossible, but I was thankful. I carried my stones with me every day.
This past weekend I went to just look at cars with my boys (sport cars) and drove by a Kia dealership. I saw a used car that would have worked for me. I was approached by the sales person and gave the information to run my credit. The next day I received a call that they could finance me, but the monthly payments were too high for what I can afford. Then immediately aftewards, I received a call from the Chevrolet dealership, which I applied online for just a few days before, stating they could finance me for a new car. I was stunned.
Long story short – This past Monday I purchased a brand new car with only $500 down and a payment that was within my range. How did this happen with my credit score and only miminal in the pocket ? It was the Universe and God, who gave me this gift for me and my family. It did not happen within 2 weeks as I said, but it DID happen within 3 weeks!
I am so very thankful ! Let’s see what else is coming.
