Believe…And It WILL Work
I came across the movie The Secret when I was nursing a severely broken heart. At first, I found it hard to be positive because I was deep in my hole of despair. After watching the movie it dawned to me that I attracted the break up! I was very negative and constantly entertaining the thought that I didn’t deserve what we have and someone’s going to ruin it, and I did!
I realized that despite this I am still very lucky to be alive, and that some people are struggling with worse problems. Little by little I found things to be grateful for: rekindled friendships, new friendships, my job, getting the bus without waiting for long, improved relationship with my family, getting to experience love even if it ended abruptly, and I did start feeling better.
Initially, I wanted my ex back, but I’ve come to realize then that I did not lose a loved one; I lost myself. And so I wanted to get my old self back – the happy me, the positive me, the me who celebrated life. I believe that if the person I lost wasn’t meant for me, then God will give me someone who’s better. When that time comes, I swore that my next love will meet the best version of myself. I made that intention, let it go, and trusted with faith in the Universe that it will come.
After a few weeks I did get back on my feet. Everyday I found things that I was thankful for. Big things or small things, they didn’t matter. What’s essential is that I was changing my perspective and it made me feel good. I got in touch with my inner self again, and I am back to enjoying the things that I loved doing. I was reading books again, photography, writing, and spending time with the people who care about me.
A little over a month after applying The Secret in my life, my ex started contacting me again. Since I’ve regained my old self back (though I was still a work in progress) I was able to communicate with my ex without feeling negative emotions. We started being friends again, with both of us knowing that we still had love for each other. To cut the story short, with my renewed zest for life and positivity we have found our way back to one another and we are as happy as we can be.
Thanks to The Secret, I have opened myself again to not letting negative emotions rule my life. Sure, there are bad days and worse days, but despite that there is still something good that comes out of things. I wholeheartedly believe that now. I have re-learned to be grateful that I have everything I need and some things that I want. Most of all, I’ve found a lasting peace and hope. And I did get my love back as a bonus!
