Believing And Knowing I Can Do Anything
About this time last year, I was struggling with so many areas of life. Losing friends, room mate, struggling with co workers, parents of students, my own family, etc. However, for a time I was dating a guy that I completely fell in love with.
Well he ended up shattering my heart to a million pieces and I was left not only not being a good enough friend, teacher, co worker, sister, daughter, etc., to not being a good enough girlfriend. I don’t know how my life fell apart so quickly.
Then one day during this time period where I felt like I was at rock bottom, a friend told me to watch “The Secret.” I fell in love with the idea right away but still felt a bit skeptical of how it would work for me. I started off small but made a list of things I wanted to happen within the next few weeks. Everything except one (this ex to call me) happened. I continued to make lists and started to change my attitude about life in general. I made a friend at church to sit with after I’d stopped going for several months, I was able to help my students the way I needed, I got three checks in the mail the very same day, things were looking better. But the one thing on the list kept not happening.
I had signed up for The Secret Scrolls and one day when I was feeling discouraged about not hearing from this guy, I got an my email message about how if something isn’t happening for us, it could be that the universe has something even better waiting for us. I decided then it was time to start letting go of this guy. Other things continued to happen for me, some bigger some smaller. This past Dec I was told from a Doctor that I was looking great and if I lost a little more weight throughout this year, we could look into me getting off my medications.
I read “The Power” and it taught me a greater understanding of things I had previously learned. I changed my attitude even more about money and debt and people in general, trying out some of the tips given in The Power. When I pay bills, I send thoughts of gratitude for the service given. When I ride the bus I send thoughts of happiness to the people on it. I pray every morning to help me be kind throughout the day. I’ve rebuilt some broken friendships. One of them may be moving in with me very shortly. I noticed there was a furniture sale going on and I know she needs a dresser, so I purchased that and a nightstand to have here in her bedroom when she moves in. I’m trying to give to her and others more, out of love.
The very same day I made this purchase, a parent came into my classroom. I had this person’s children in my class a couple of years ago. She offered me an amazing opportunity, to help nanny for her children on an all expenses paid trip to Florida to swim with the dolphins. One of my written goals this year was to go on a nice vacation. And I’ve LOVED dolphins for a long time and have always thought swimming with them would be the coolest thing ever. Out of nowhere, I’m finding that this dream will be coming true. I cannot wait till May!
Ever since watching “The Secret”, my attitude about life has changed and improved. People noticed when I ‘got my sparkle back.’ Now I may not have found another guy yet, but I learned to love myself during this whole process. Not only myself, but to love others around me as well. I’ve changed in so many ways and now I’m helping others to believe that they too can do anything. It would be wrong of me to not express my gratitude to Rhonda Byrne and to everyone that has made this experience possible. I am so grateful to have this amazing tool in my life, to have someone explain to me the secret of living a happy and successful life.
During a time that dying seemed much more appealing than living, Rhonda became an angel and picked me up and put me on higher grounds. I now have the words “Ask, Believe, Receive” on decorative blocks in my living room for me to see everyday. Thank you Rhonda for changing my life and helping me to become a better, healthier, happier person. I am grateful for how you changed my life, my friends’ lives, and all others whom you have touched. I am so blessed to know “The Secret.”
