Christmas Came Early This Year!
This story is a bit late because I just found out you can submit stories here. I decided I need to get ready for 2016! 2015 was a quiet and simple year for me which consisted of stepping back from the fast life, grounding myself, sleeping on the floor, and only eating to live so I can cleanse myself and try to figure out a game plan. I didn’t focus on making money, just enough for groceries and bills. I read a lot and I even stopped partying and socializing 90% of the time. I still felt such great gratitude that I could live a simple life and be satisfied and it allowed me to spend more time with family and dear friends and most importantly, to reintroduce myself to myself.
Long story short, I had just passed my NCLEX and was getting ready for my move to Hawaii. I didn’t have much money, but I knew that applying for jobs online and creating a resume would be inconvenient without a computer. This past early December, I told only a coworker, who after this became a “Believer”, and my best friend, who also practices The Secret. My affirmation went like this “I’m getting a laptop for Christmas! I don’t know how, maybe I will win something or maybe someone will just buy me a laptop! Thank you Universe!”
A week before Christmas I was hanging out in the living room with my best friend. She was on her laptop as we were looking at jobs online together. My brother and his girlfriend were also there on their laptops. I said to my friend “Man, how am I going to submit resumes and job applications?”
Right then my brother’s girlfriend says “Hey Maggie, do you want my laptop? I have an extra laptop I only used for 2 weeks when I was in school and it’s been sitting there for months now”. I asked her “How much do you want for it?” to which she replied “You can have it, I don’t need it, I have two laptops and you would put use to it!”
Just another memory that shows evidence that if you ask, believe, and let go, then you will receive! Let the Universe figure out the best way for it to come to you!
Thank you and can’t wait to keep practicing The Secret!
