My husband and I have lived in apartments for the last 6 years, following the foreclosure on a home we loved. Both of us spent most of that six years feeling defeated, and like we just weren’t meant to succeed, or ever have a home again.
A few weeks ago, I began reading The Secret, and although I was still quite skeptical, I decided to try something simple.
It has been one of the greatest aggravations of my life that my house key would never turn in the lock of our apartment door without jiggling, fighting, struggling with it. So I began saying to myself, “My key ALWAYS works! It works easily the first time and every time I use it.”
Admittedly, I felt stupid saying it, but lo and behold, my key began acting normally!
I was surprised and inspired.
My husband and I had been talking to a friend who is a Realtor about the possibility of some day owning another home, and about this time, she took me to see a home that I fell in love with. Immediately, upon walking into the foyer, I felt a sense of peace, of homecoming, like this was my place. We put an offer in on it, but there were 4 other offers, so our Realtor told us to be prepared for disappointment, just in case.
I found I could not do that!
I had felt that was my home. I began planning a Christmas party for 8 months from now, in that home. I had disliked both Christmas AND entertaining, until I walked into this home. I knew which bedroom would be my husband’s office. I knew where I planned to plant a garden. I knew in my heart that was my home, and nothing, not even 4 competing offers could shake me from speaking as if the house was already mine. I don’t know why. This is very uncharacteristic of me.
I was not even really very surprised when our Realtor called to tell us that our offer has been accepted!
Thrilled, yes. Surprised? No.
I somehow just knew it would be. Not only is this house a brand new beginning for my husband and me, I can see now that your book is helping us create a whole new LIFE, as well.
Thank you SO MUCH for your wonderful book!
