A New Start
About 10 months ago I left a hurtful relationship. It was shortly after that when I found “The Secret.” I watched it over and over again. It was like hearing a truth that I knew but had forgotten.
At the time I was living in an old home on a rental lot and the house was falling apart faster than I could fix it. I had debts that I could not pay back and I was barely making it from paycheck to paycheck. In all honesty, I was not making it. I lived thousands of miles away from my family and felt very isolated. I had a job with people I liked, but it was going nowhere and didn’t pay overly well, with no real chance of a raise or promotion. I decided I wanted something different. One day my daughter and I were watching “The Secret” again and I asked her if she wanted to make a vision board. We went to the store and got the stuff and spent the afternoon dreaming about what we wanted life to be like. Not much changed… I had found my daughter’s vision board under her bed, but I still had mine on the wall and spent time thinking about it every day.
One day out of the blue I got a call from my family with an offer I couldn’t refuse. I am now living in Florida, close to family, in a condo near the beach, and have had 3 months off of work to focus on me before going back to work at a new job that pays more than twice what my old job paid and has benefits too. One of my greatest friends from where I was got offered a job less than 10min from where I live now and will be moving here in 2 weeks. I got money to pay off all of my debt and buy a new car. I sit on the beach at sunrise now, still amazed at what has happened in my life, and I am so, so grateful.
