Against All Odds.
So, I started out having children very young. However, the Universe sent me messages that dropping out of high school did not mean that my life was over. I believed it was true and continued to live my life acquiring my MBA, a house, and four grandsons over the years.
Against all odds, I did go back to college and eventually got the MBA. During that experience I had the opportunity to travel to Ireland and see the most amazing things.
When my company moved my job to another country, I received a new job and got to travel around the country and work with some of the most amazing people.
Then about three years ago, everything started to go haywire. I broke up with my unfaithful boyfriend of 14 years, the best boss in the world left my department, and my one grandson had to be removed from his parents due to their heroin addiction. The Universe sent him to me as it knew I would take care of him for as long as he needed my care.
I was devastated. I spent 3 years praying for help. I didn’t know how to take care of a little boy who had been neglected and abused. He had no trust in adults, was argumentative, and I was exhausted. I somehow held everything basically together although I hadn’t planned to be on my own as a single parent again. One time was enough in my opinion.
The work situation was tedious to say the least. Every day some type of battle or unkind word or actions. Around the house, every where I turned something needed to be fixed or repaired. I just couldn’t imagine how I could turn this all around. And because I couldn’t see it, it was staying just the way it was.
I had a habit of writing down Gratitudes through out my life. Someone once shared with me, as you value what you have in your life, more good will come to you. I kept writing them down. Ten a day when things were going smoothly, 100 if the day was going badly. Slowly, things started to get a little bit better.
I saw a small amount of The Secret on the television one night, but had to go to bed as I was still so exhausted. I knew the Universe would bring to me that which I needed when the time was right. I kept on praying and believing that things would get better.
Then recently a very good friend of mine mentioned on a phone call that I should get the book The Secret. Often, I follow my own heart and it’s infrequent I accept other people’s advice. This time, I did follow the advice. Although I didn’t get the book that day, my dearest friend Russ had told me enough of The Secret that I started right away believing good things were all around me. That all of the pain and desperation of the past was over.
Within days I had the book ordered and continued with my Gratitudes, thanking the Universe, and knowing in my heart things are improving.
I’ve been accepting into my life all the miracles that surround me. The water damage in one of my rooms was fully covered by insurance. My grandson is walking around the house singing children’s songs, allowing me to hold and snuggle with him, and is a wonderful example of how love can change the world. I keep getting the best parking spots everywhere I go!
I had just gotten to the section in the book about visualizing what one wants. I did a little practice of that idea and then continued reading the book. I got to the part where the little boy went to Disney World and wished for having shorter lines for the rides.
I broke down into tears. At that moment, I knew without a doubt all that I had been through led me to The Secret. That I can live a happy, joyous, amazing life just from believing it to be true. The Gratitude in my heart from this gift is amazing. I haven’t cried tears of joys in so long. I know that much more good is coming into my life.
I felt so moved by the experience that I felt compelled to share it to give others hope and joy just as I have enjoyed.
