Finding the book….THE SECRET
On Nov 8th (my Birthday) in 2008 my 28 yr old son took his life and I have been in a terrible state of giving up since. I have been up and down with trying to get my spirit back. Last week I said these words out loud, “I WANT MY LIFE BACK, I WANT TO BE HAPPY AGAIN, I WANT TO BE TRULY GRATEFUL FOR THE 28 YEARS I DID HAVE WITH MY BEAUTIFUL SON AND I WANT TO HELP OTHERS IN THE SAME SITUATION. PLEASE HELP ME, SHOW ME THE WAY.” I was desperate to get out of this funk and in my mind I kept saying simular words.
Well, last Saturday I went to help my mother with her garage sale at the complex where she lives. As I was looking through some books at another stall I found the book ‘THE SECRET’. That very night I started to read the book and I have been smiling ever since. I have started to leave the house without fear, I’ve started to go for walks, I’ve started to appreciated everything I do have in my life. It is amazing what is happening to me.
As I think about ‘THE SECRET’ I remember eight years ago when I was alone and lonely I’ll never forget what happened when I asked for someone to love. Within a week after asking for love an old friend buzzed my apartment to see if I still lived there, and if so, ask me out to dinner. He loved me eighteen years before but I didn’t love him the same, so we stayed friends. Also, we hadn’t seen each other for many years.
To make a long story short……we haven’t been apart since and now married seven years. We have a very special love and I now realize that I was making use of ‘THE SECRET’ even back then. I’m sure I have many other stories but this one is one we tell over and over to people.
I know now that I am definately on a great road to healing and being grateful for my dear son and the life he did have. I want to buy this book for everybody I know because even though I have just started on my journey, I know I have a good and happy life left to me and I would love to share that. I asked for this and I got it and I will never look back.
