Falling In Love For The First Time, With Myself!
I came to know about The Secret in 2015 from a friend. At that time, I was confused about a relationship that ended as soon as it started. Although I did not actually practice it seriously, I practiced saying my gratitude before going to bed at night. Magically, within a month the guy was back in my life and things were at least moving in a more positive direction. However, I started finding faults and getting emotional about things and soon enough, he walked out on me. This time it ended badly. I was miserable for a couple of months.
Then I started practicing my gratitude again. I realized that instead of being grateful for having him in my life, I was complaining about a lot of things that he “lacked”, and as the book says, invited more problems into our relationship.
A few weeks after practicing positive thinking and gratitude, as I was walking towards my car after work, I suddenly felt an emotion of being in love. And magically for the first time in my forty years of life, I felt I was in love with myself! That feeling was absolutely magical. And pretty soon, he and I were in contact again and this time around was even more better. But silly me. Whenever things are going great, I slowly forget to say my gratitude. Instead, again I started picking on one thing after another. Now, it has been many months that we have had contact. And I was living in pain inside and acting happy outside.
Yesterday, I received my The Secret book which I ordered. I haven’t finished reading it but I can see how my negative thinking and complaining has deteriorated the relationship every time. And how my gratitude has brought more blessings into my life every time. As I am writing to you now, I am feeling so much better than I have felt for many months. I decided to share my story so that it may help someone out there in a similar situation. I am looking forward to writing again to share with you the blessings that I have received in being grateful for the wonderful life I have.
