Nothing Is Impossible!
I woke up this morning really excited because I was eager to share my story.
I want to start by thanking you Rhonda Byrne for The Secret. I never would have known that after reading this book my life would change for good.
My father suffers from major depression and anxiety and relies on medicine in order to feel good. When I was a little girl I remember him yelling and crying that he wanted to die. I know this affected me in a sort of way, because my whole life I have had to go to therapy and psychologists.
Back in high school I was bullied at lunch time. I would run to get my food and go sit in the bathroom and eat because I didn’t want to get bullied. I got fed up with this situation and started hanging out with the bad kids who were doing drugs and drinking. I wanted to be respected, I wanted to be cool and get attention. I started hanging out with older people, 25-30 years old and I was only 17. I was really hooked up on drugs and didn’t know if I could leave them.
Two years passed and my parents gave me and my younger brother the notice that they were getting a divorce. That day was the worst day in my life. I was in a bad state and all I could think of was that I had no friends, all I have is my family and now they’re splitting up.
I ran to my room crying. I got a picture frame I had with a picture of my family and broke it. With a piece of the glass, I cut my wrist and ended up hospitalized for a week and was told that if I ever did that again I would go to a different kind of hospital and be there for a long time. I sure didn’t want that.
There were many times that I tried to take my life. I lived with anger and resentment. I hated everything and everyone. When my dad left he made his own family and me and my brother stayed with my mother. I saw her struggle so much to work 2 different jobs in order to have food for us on the table, even if that meant not spending much time with us. That is something that even till this day I am so thankful for, my wonderful mother never giving up and leaving our side.
Later that year I got into a relationship and immediately got pregnant. I was not happy at all. I had negative thoughts about how I thought my life was ruined. Little did I know my life was about to change. My son was born and with my mom’s help I was raising this baby.
One day I went into a Nutrition Club and the instructor there was having a lecture with other people that were there about this book The Secret. I sat down and listened and as she was reading, tears were coming down my eyes. She was reading the story of Bill Harris, how he had a student who was gay and how his whole life was one of unhappiness and misery. All because of his sexual orientation, at work and on the streets all he heard were mean nasty comments. Bill Harris helped him focus on what he wanted in life rather than what he did not want.
After the lecture finished I asked her if I could borrow the book and she said yes. Let me tell you that after opening the book it was impossible to close. I finished it in one day! I did all the activities it told me to do.
I made a list of short term goals I wanted to achieve. I wrote inspirational quotes everywhere, I printed out my blank check and started to be grateful for everything I had, even for what I did not have.
I got into beauty school and am now a beauty graduate. I wanted to give back so I started doing free haircuts, pedicures and makeup on everyone I could. I went to Navy bases and got to work on military wives whose husbands were deployed. I also went to homeless shelters and now I also collect food and clothes and take it to Tijuana, Mexico for the homeless populations.
I don’t have money in a bank account but what I do have is peace in my heart. I am now 24 years old and I have been clean and sober for 3 years. My son is 4 years old and I am raising him on my own. I have a great relationship with my father but I now have a wonderful relationship with God and the Universe and this was all thanks to The Secret.
Life works in mysterious ways. Now when I look back at my past I just wish I would have met The Secret back then. I am so happy and grateful now and have come to understand that the law of attraction is the most powerful law in the universe. I only send good thoughts to the universe and I only attract good things.
Next month I am getting married. Me and my boyfriend are reading this book together because we believe by using it we will have a happy ever lasting marriage.
Thank you again Rhonda. May god bless you and your family, thank you for helping me believe in myself. I now know that everything is possible, nothing is impossible!
