I had my first child when I was 15 years old… From that point on, my life seemed to be filled with a myriad of many painful and negative experiences.
At the age of 27, I finally entered University after working very hard to just accomplish getting my Grade 12 (something many family members and friends said I would never accomplish). On the very last day of finishing up my first year, I was getting in my car to go home when one of my classmates approached my vehicle. He wasn’t someone I had spoken with much during the entire year, so I found it a little odd that he seemed to be chasing me down in the parking lot. When I rolled my window down, he asked if he could have my email address and phone number so that perhaps we could keep in touch during the summer. I was kind of in a hurry to get home and I hastily wrote down my info in his book and drove off not giving the exchange much thought at all.
To make a long and beautiful story short, this person deeply, profoundly, and forever changed the entire direction of my life! We began exchanging emails, then having coffee together, and eventually he became my angel.
The second year in University was, without a doubt, the most difficult year of my entire life. I was going through a very nasty divorce, I was in financial ruin, my vehicle was repossessed, I was visiting the food bank in order to feed my children, I had to declare personal bankruptcy, and then found out I had cervical cancer. With all that was going on it was very difficult to concentrate on my education but I had a very deep seated need to prove my family and everyone wrong! My body however, had a very different idea in mind. I had what I guess many people would call a “nervous breakdown”. I ended up in a mental health facility after repeatedly cutting myself. My “angel” never left my side during this time.
This period in my life is extremely foggy and I have a difficult time remembering details, facts, and dates. When I finally “woke up”, I felt tremendous guilt for the things my children may or may not have witnessed in that foggy time. But the good news was that I got the help I needed to start my healing process.
That Christmas, that dear friend I spoke of earlier, gave me an audiobook as a gift. It was “The Secret”!!! From that moment on my life has transformed so dramatically that at times, it honestly brings me to tears!
The main reason I wanted to share my story was not so much to talk about myself but to express how thankful I am for The Secret. I am not sure if anyone has thanked all the people who were/are a part of bringing all of this information to me and the entire world!
