Going from homeless to having a maid!
First of all I would like to say THANK YOU to Rhonda and the whole Secret team. Youâve finally put a title to my life! Thank you so much for opening a door to this amazing world. Iâm forever grateful. I would also like to thank everyone who shares their stories here. You have no idea how much all your stories help and how many hearts theyâve touched and continue to do so. I hope that my story of life can give someone a little bit of hope.
In my 32 years of life you can say Iâve been through hell and heaven. Only God and I know everything thatâs happened in my life. But Iâm so extremely happy for all the good and bad experiences because theyâve made me who I am today, PERFECT! I love myself so much, I love my life, my family, my friends and life in general.
All my life Iâve used the LOA without even knowing it. I always thought I was just special. Things that Iâve always desired sooner or later would come true. Iâll try to make my story as short as possible and believe me Iâm leaving out sooooo many other great things. So, here I go!
I got married and moved to a foreign country as Iâd dreamed of since I can remember. I moved so far away that I have to literally cross from one end of the world to the other. In 2008 I filed for divorce because I realized that I wasnât happy for a long time and the marriage was consuming all my energy. There were practically no intimate moments or any conversation with my now ex husband. We were like roommates. I would always be alone with our son and my ex would never go out for a walk, or any social events with us. I was living 2 lives; the one I had at home and the one I had with my friends. My ex was always depressed and very negative and every time I suggested he get help he would always deny he needed any. The last 3 years of our marriage just drove me completely apart from him. Sometimes it felt like I was living with a total stranger.
When I filed for divorce he told me he didnât see it coming and that there was nothing wrong with our marriage. Although Iâd told him so many times I wasnât happy and I felt like we were an 80 y.o. couple. He would deny everything and say that itâs just me and my ideas. He started getting aggressive since he didnât want the divorce. I took my son and left home since he wasnât even considering leaving the house. I moved in with my ex sister-in-law because she was the one who suggested that I move in with her since her brother started getting really aggressive and she was scared heâd hurt me. 2 weeks later she kicked us out of her house. I donât think Iâll ever know the reason and frankly I donât even care now. My son was only 5. I had literally nowhere to go. I didnât have any family in this country. I called a friend of mine and asked if my son and I could stay with her for some time until I could get a place of my own. She was my savior! She told me we could stay with her as long as it was necessary. I couldnât sleep for days and cried and cried because here I was with a broken marriage, all on my own with no place to live in.
A miracle happened and I could find a place to rent for my son and I, just 1 week after that. I remember the day I moved into the house the only thing was there was a bed. For me that was more than enough at that time. I crashed on the bed and felt so peaceful.
My ex husband wanted to get our sonâs full custody. At first I was horrified because my son was the only person I had in this country and I couldnât even imagine my life without him. At this point I was emotionally, mentally and physically exhausted. My ex and his family said and did unimaginable things to me that I never in my life thought were possible. It all seemed a complete nightmare. My finances were way worse than worse. I wouldnât even make it to the end of the month. I was behind with all my bills and creditors would call me all the time. I was in such a huge credit card debt.
One day I was sitting at home all by myself and really depressed and thought I should do something about my life before I go nuts. I went to the video store and wanted to rent something funny. Out of all the videos in the counter this one video just caught my eye. It was a black cover with a red seal that said âThe Secretâ. Iâd never heard of this movie and I didnât even read the description. When I got home and started watching it the first thing I said was âOh great!!! A documentary!? Really??â A minute later I was sitting on my bed and tears were literally pouring down my cheeks. I finally saw a light, I finally had hope that from now on everything will be just fine. I realized it was The Secret that found me. Suddenly, everything in my life started to make sense. From that day on I took control over my life.
My divorce was finalized in a matter of months even though my lawyer said it was a complicated case and could take up to 3 years. I knew in my heart it was going to be just a matter of months. I just felt it. I knew that I would get full custody of my son which I did. I knew that a new chapter of my life is going to start and my son and I will be really happy.
I was alone for over a year and one day I said to myself wow, Iâm so proud of myself. Iâm so proud of how Iâve handled everything and Iâve come out of this mess with my conscious clean and my head up so high. I said to a friend of mine any guy would be so lucky to have me in his life and I deserved someone whoâd be my best friend, partner, lover.
Today, Iâm living in my very own house with my son and my boyfriend. My boyfriend is the sweetest, most honest, caring, loving, funniest person Iâve ever met. He makes me laugh so hard every single day and weâre such a happy family. My son loves him and they get along so well. We have plans to get married soon and have a baby. Heâs helping me with the bills and I donât owe anyone anything!! Iâm 100% debt free and Iâm up to date with all my bills and I even have a maid!!! When my boyfriend moved in with me he said he would hate to see me come back from work and have to clean and cook and do the laundry so, he hired a maid!
My life is just so perfect now. I wouldnât change a thing and Iâm really grateful for everything I have and all the good things that are coming into our life.
To all those people who see no hope in their lives I just want to say please open your heart and believe. Believe that everything good will come into your life. Believe that you deserve nothing less than perfect. The key to getting everything you want is YOU!! Believe me if I could get out of all the mess in my life completely healed so can you. Just love yourself and believe that you deserve all the best. When you do that I guarantee that great things will happen in your life.
