Every year for my birthday I usually just went shopping, but last year I decided I wanted to go to Disneyland. Since seven people would be going, I thought it might be really expensive and thought maybe my parents wouldn’t take me. But I decided to focus on what I wanted. I wanted to go to Disneyland for my birthday and I was going to visualize it and see if it worked.
It was about February. I kind of wanted to go in March, even though my birthday is in April. Anyway, I would go on the Disneyland website and visualize myself there and feel all of the gratitude and happiness I would feel if I were there. I would always go on the website and check what days they would have fireworks, what hours they opened, and when they’d close. I’d look through the restaurants and menus, and what rides there were. I already knew most of the information, but it was fun to keep looking anyway. I even planned what restaurant I wanted to go to.
I didn’t think about going all the time, mostly only when I was online, but I really wanted to go! It was more like planning than trying to make it happen. Like, I wasn’t trying to make it happen as much as I was planning as if I already had it.
One day there was a Disneyland commercial on TV and then my mom said that we were going there for my birthday!! I was so happy because I didn’t even mention it at all and I still got to go. Even though it was seven people, she was actually okay with it. And I didn’t go in March, we did go in April, but at least I still got to go!
Thank you Rhonda and all The Secret team! And hope this story helps. 🙂
