A Second Chance
My name is Amanda, and I am a 30 year old professional in Chicago. About a year and a half ago, I randomly met the most incredible man I have known. We both were recently single, and slowly developed our relationship into something unlike anything I had ever experienced. I was in total shock when, in August, he told me that he was not interested in continuing our relationship.
To put it mildly, I was devastated. I was struggling to get out of bed, eat, work, even function. I was fortunate enough to have an incredible support system, but it still wasn’t enough.
My Mother was very concerned, and then sent me the book, The Secret. I started reading it and it began making more sense than I had anticipated. My sister had also mentioned her experience with The Secret and how it has changed her professional life in such a positive way.
Two weeks after the break up, I drove to Michigan to help my brother move back. I was struggling to even listen to music, as every song made me think about him. My depression was continuing to progress. I decided to purchase The Secret on tape, and I can honestly say that it changed my life after listening to it.
I began thanking The Secret for all of the wonderful things I had in my life currently, and it quickly helped me work through my depression. Even when looking for a parking spot, I would vision myself pulling into a spot right in front of my apartment, thanking The Secret for helping me, and I would actually find a spot right in front of my apartment.
Every night before I would fall asleep, I wrote in The Gratitude Book. It really helped me center my thoughts in a positive way. Every morning I would say thank you for the littlest things as I was getting out of bed, getting ready for work, and driving to the office. My friends noticed a huge change in my attitude, my behaviors, and my overall being.
I started thanking The Secret for finding true love and happiness. I began dating again, but none of the men I met gave me that feeling I had with my previous partner.
Then, out of nowhere, I received an email from my ex-boyfriend on October 31st. I thought it was spam mail, but decided to open it up, and to my surprise and shock, it was a note from him, explaining how hard it has been, and that he made “The biggest mistake of his life leaving me”.
After a few conversations on the phone, we decided to meet in person and discuss everything that happened. I realized that I missed him dearly and wanted to be in a relationship with him, even though he had broken my heart. The last two months have been even more incredible than our initial courtship. The Secret taught me to love myself first, and be thankful for everything I have, therefore I was able to forgive and love this man even more and better than before.
Two weeks ago, Greg asked my Father for permission to ask me to marry him. Then, on New Year’s Eve, he popped the question and of course I said yes. We are currently planning our wedding for this summer in Michigan.
Thank you so much to Rhonda and the entire Secret Team for documenting the law of attraction and the power of the Universe. Not only did The Secret help me get through my deep depression, it brought Greg back into my life. I am happier than I have ever been, and it is because The Secret helped me.
I have since passed this book to friends who are now practicing The Secret, and they are also experiencing and feeling the power of The Secret. I hope that everyone can experience the joy I have.
