Acceptance Into My Dream College
First of all, let me start off by saying the college I applied to was a foreign university and one of the top 3 in the country. It was a HUGE reach for me and everyone around me was amused at my seemingly pathetic attempt to gain acceptance; I had slacked off for the first two years of my high school career and was left at the bottom of my grade in ranking. I don’t know why I was confident enough to send my application in, but after finding out about The Secret, I truly felt that I could do anything.
For the past two weeks, I purified my mind of negative thoughts. I meditated when I could not sleep at night instead of texting my friends or lingering on Facebook. I e-mailed myself an acceptance letter from the school and read it over and over again as I waited for the real one. The Secret enforces not just affirmative words but actually feeling the emotions, so I pretended I had been accepted for the whole two weeks. I went online and looked at pictures of the campus, imagining that I was rolling around the green hills and walking on the paved roads that would lead me from class to class.
About one hour ago, I received an e-mail. It was my acceptance letter.
Thank you, Rhonda. Thank you, every teacher that contributed their advice and wonderful words to novel and movie. Thank you. You all selflessly shared The Secret with the world, and so will I. Thank you.
