Connecting the dots
As a child, my brothers and sisters and I would talk about where we were going to be when we grew up. I had stated that I would marry, have a couple kids, and we would do okay in life. I would have a nice home, nice cars, and life would be good.
Well, here I am; used the Secret and didn’t even know it. Over the years I used the Secret but didn’t know what it was about. I thought that I lived an on-again off-again charmed life, never realizing that I was making ‘thoughts become things’ until I saw the panel on Oprah, bought the book, and devoured it in two days. I always fall asleep when I read and thought I’d never make it through the book. I am very grateful that I did. I have since talked about the theories and beliefs of The Secret with family and friends, and continually remind them of the power they hold. They look at me and my life and think surely it must work – look at what I have.
My husband and I have been in foreclosure status on our home for over 2 years – being a contractor can be a tough life. It’s amazing to everyone we know as to how we could still be hanging on to our home after all this time. By the way, we are living in my dream home – the only thing that hasn’t come yet is putting in a pool – but I’m working on it.
I am grateful and thankful every day and know that this is where I am supposed to be, and I believe that that is why we have been able to continue to live in my dream home and why our mortgage company continues to work with us.
When a mortgage payment comes due each month, my husband gets a job that covers it. He still thinks I’m crazy for believing, but I believe enough for both of us. The Secret has allowed me to connect the dots – I knew it since I was a child but didn’t know I knew until I read the book. I am now more focused on happiness, helping others, good health, and living life, as a result of understanding the universe.
