Conquered Chronic Bronchitis
Ever since I was a child I always believed there must be something more to our lives than what I was experiencing. I always believed in a higher power. Throughout life I experienced small things that seemed to be proof of that belief, but not enough to empower me. I have been through many personal traumas, and over the years my health declined and I started to develop bronchitis two, three, even four times a year (I’m a 45-year-old non-smoker). I was miserable and low on energy. It seemed to get worse with each passing year.
After my last boyfriend turned out to be someone I no longer respected, I hit rock bottom. My sister bought The Secret and left it at my door. It took a few days for me to find the energy to even attempt reading it. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. It confirmed everything I had always hoped the world was really all about.
After reading the stories of self-healing I decided I wasn’t going to allow myself to get sick anymore. I wasn’t going to let my feelings dictate what happened to me. I changed my focus and looked for all the little things that made me happy every day.
This is the first winter I have been through in 18 years that I haven’t gotten sick AT ALL. No colds, no flu, and no bronchitis! There have been days that I started to feel rundown, especially when my co-workers told me about how they were feeling. Then I would tell myself, “No, you’re not getting sick. Period.” And it worked.
I have my energy back, I’m smiling again, and I find myself laughing at the simple things in life that I just couldn’t see before.
Misery really does love company. When I was down, I attracted people who were unhappy and wanted to commiserate. Now that I changed my focus I’m meeting upbeat people and I’m on a new path with bigger and better things to come.
