Expecting Money And Receiving It!
I’ve read all of your books except for Hero. I’ve never been skeptical about The Secret but it honestly hadn’t been working for me beyond getting a good parking space at times.
My story isn’t a huge life-changing one unfortunately, but I just wanted to share how sometimes the little things add up to big ones.
In October of 2013, right after having the time of my life in Savannah, GA, I returned home and it just seemed like everything was going downhill. I hated my job. My car’s repair bills were mounting up. My personal bills were adding up from being a month or so behind. I just wasn’t generally happy with my life. I was even sick of my city. I felt like I had never been so low in my life.
I decided that I wanted things to be better. I didn’t know how. I didn’t know when. But I really, really focused on trying to think positively even though it was beginning to be very hard to do. I tried encouraging all of my friends to be positive too.
To be honest, I don’t remember exactly the point when things started turning around. But I remember one day a friend texted me asking if I remembered how down I was just a month or so ago. I said yes. Then he said well things are better now. That’s when I realized that they were.
It’s income tax season and I usually don’t get a lot of money back. This year was no different. But I was able to use my money to catch up on my bills. Also, my job has been giving me unexpected overtime work so I was able to save up for a down payment on a new-to-me car and trade my old car in. I even have a new office that I was able to design myself!
I’ve also been focusing on thinking about receiving checks. The amount of unexpected money that I’ve received lately hasn’t been a tremendous amount but it has surely helped! For instance, I received a check from my bank for $63.71 because someone had sued the bank and won! I’m at work now and I was just handed a check for $143 for sick pay that I hadn’t used. I was previously told that I used all of my sick pay.
I’m feeling so encouraged and happy right now, it’s unbelievable! I’m just going to keep believing and deciding that I want to be happy! I can’t wait to see what else the Universe has in store for me! Perhaps I’ll be in my dream career and dating the man of my dreams before you know it. 😉
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
