Dream Wedding Location.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to Rhonda and your team to introducing The Secret. I am finally writing my own story here and really grateful for that.
Normally I’m a believer and it wasn’t hard for me to be positive. I came from a decent family with loving parents and I believe it’s my father who taught me to be positive, no matter what. I first discovered The Secret when I was following a course about human resource. The lecturer showed the trailer of The Secret movie at that time I was really amazed. But for some reason, I totally forgot about it the next day. Then after 2 years, I again discovered it and this time I got the book of The Secret. I read the book and I found out Rhonda had published some other books as well. Out of the blue, one of my friend’s gifted me the hard copy of The Magic. It is indeed magic and I started the practices in the book.
At that time my wedding was close and I wanted it to be an outdoor function but it was hard to do. Then I decided to do the Poruwa ceremony in the outdoors. In Sri Lanka, we often get married at a special place called Poruwa. I found a great hotel with a lagoon facing view just like I dreamed of. However, the problem was that the reception area was divided by a staircase. They said that they were renovating the reception area so the staircase would not be a problem. As I learnt from The Secret and The Magic, I wrote a gratitude list mentioning the renovated reception. After those practices I was really focusing my feelings and I counting my blessings as a habitual action.
I don’t know how but my father found another hotel that also was facing a lagoon and the reception area was huge, to my surprise. We tentatively booked the date and I was really happy about the place. Somehow they cancelled the booking without giving prior notice because we didn’t pay the advance amount. The problem was that when my father went to pay the advance, they had already cancelled it! We were really upset about what happened and I was in a real bad situation for finding another place that would be just like I had dreamed.
Then suddenly my florist talked to my father saying he had done many weddings at the previous hotel and the dividing staircase won’t be a problem when the crowd starts to move. Fortunately one of my father’s friends became the manager of that hotel and we received a discount as well! We paid the advance payment right away and I was so relieved that I got the place and I believed it was the Universe that set things up to give me the best!
The fun part of this story is that I was thinking about submitting a story here but didn’t have any to write. Then I found the gratitude list I had written in my email drafts which I mentioned earlier. I was really surprised to see that I had written about the hotel earlier. I totally forgot about the list and I was in tears because one of my written dreams came true. Now I have a story to share with all the loving people.
I want to thank everyone who has written their stories here because they have really inspired me so much. My advice is that no matter what, don’t give up! Stay happy. You might not be able to be happy 100% of the time but at least try to be 51% happy. That is enough to change your frequency! See you all soon with more stories.
I am really grateful for The Secret team, for the moderator who read this and for so many others as well. Love you all! Thank you!
