Don’t Give Up!
Like many people on this website, I came here for positivity when things were getting dark. I read and cried reading many stories, being so happy for all of the people that had received the blessings they had hoped for! I imagined myself posting on this website many times and it’s finally my turn.
I started my own business in 2020 right before Covid 19 hit hard. Like many businesses, my company was collapsing in front of my eyes. I got into debt, $35,000 to be exact. I couldn’t pay my bills or my mortgage and I was ready to give up on life.
One morning after weeks of heavy drinking and depression, I saw a post on Facebook about this book called “The Secret”. I was so desperate to find something to hold on to that I decided to give it a try. I read the book and watched The Secret movie in November of 2020, and then started to apply the teachings in the book.
I was broke and in debt but somehow I was feeling happy. I was enjoying moments with my kids and the holidays. I used my bank account picture and edited it to show the $35,000 that I needed to pay off my business loans. I put December 1st as the date I would receive it. I started to buy lottery tickets and found occasional money to go try my luck at the casino. No luck with that, and I was starting to give up.
I kept coming here and reading more stories about people finding money from tax returns and such. I knew was no way I would get this kind of random payment since I was all up to date with that. My lottery tickets weren’t winning and the money I would spend in casinos would just put me even more behind.
So this morning I woke up feeling down and put The Secret movie on the TV. I needed something positive. My loan payments were due the first week of January and I had no money to cover any of that. One of the speakers in the movie was talking about an idea that he had to make money while he was in the shower, and how if you have an inspired thought, you should act on it.
Suddenly, I had an inspired thought. I decided to check my retirement account to see how much I had there. What I saw made me sob in disbelieve, happiness, and appreciation. I had another account set up for $37,000! I had no idea it was there or who set it up.
It turns out it was from my previous employer who went bankrupt and that was the money that had been transferred from their plans and lawsuits. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I had not worked there for the last 2 years and that payment had just come through in July!
I can’t stop crying. When I read about people finding money from different sources, I thought to myself that I know every penny that I have and there is no way that could be me. But God and the Universe had a different plan!
Don’t give up hope. You don’t need to know how, you just need to ask, be grateful, and believe!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is the best ending to 2020 that I could have ever imagined! Happy New Year everyone! Stay positive and 2021 will be the most amazing year ever!
