Dreams Really Do Come True!
Let me start with saying that I absolutely LOVE and believe completely in The Secret and all it has to offer. I read the book and watched the movie when I was about sixteen years old and have since then seen it work countless times in my life. I love discussing it with people and watching it effect others. People often tell me that they would love to have some of the opportunities that I’ve been given already in my nineteen years of life, but I know that they can. Everything that’s happened to me and will continue to happen is because of a reason – incredible belief, faith, and love. This is my favorite “Secret” story which is why I’m writing it here today. 🙂
From the time I was about twelve years old, I fell in love with BC. My family had been out there a few times to visit some relatives, and I also was able to play volleyball there too. I loved the mountains, the ocean, the flowers… everything. I knew that’s where I wanted to be. I would tell my family, any of my boyfriends, and all of my friends that I wanted to go to BC one day and that was where I was going to live, however, coming from a small town like Saskatchewan, nobody really knew how I was going to do it. And honestly neither did I, I just knew. I remember distinctly one friend asking me how I was going to do everything I wanted to do in my life, and after telling them my future plans, I said, “I don’t know, I just will.” And I believed with all my heart that I would.
When I graduated, I debated going to UVic in Victoria, BC for school. Ultimately, I decided to stay in Saskatchewan for my first year for a variety of reasons. I decided though that if I still had the same compulsion to go to BC after this year, I would. I knew in the first couple of months that I still wanted to go, so I applied to UBC. I applied in November of my first year, so before I even wrote my first set of university finals. I was a little worried about keeping my marks high enough to transfer, but then I decided to put The Secret to use.
I created three vision boards with one completely devoted to UBC. I wrote an acceptance letter with my name and a big YES on it. I posted pictures of the university and the apartment I wanted to live in. I even made a transcript with grades from my university – grades that would definitely get me into UBC. Every morning before my run, I would get up and look at my vision boards. I would imagine the day I got my acceptance letter, how I would feel, what I would do, what I would tell people. Then I would FEEL it. I always left my place with a big smile on my face because I knew my acceptance letter was coming.
I waited until about July and then started to get nervous because I had applied in November and still no letter, however I tried not to think about it too much. I knew I had done everything I could do.
A few weeks later I got the letter I had been waiting for in the mail. I couldn’t believe it! I called my friends and my dad and mom! I was SO happy – all my dreams were coming true 🙂 Even better, ALL (every single one) of my credits transferred!!!!
Now I am here, and I absolutely love it. I got into all the classes I needed to (even though they were full, again, The Secret) and I have been getting top marks so far. I am not worried about anything because I know now that I can achieve anything through believing.
I hope that every single person discovers this for themselves too! This is how miracles happen.
