From Birjinia To Virginia.
It was about 8 years ago maybe in 2007 or 2008, that I heard about The Secret documentary. My friend from Shiraz, a city in the south of Iran called me and recommended that I watch this documentary that will change my life. At that time I was living in a shared flat with three other friends in downtown of Tehran. After watching this movie I started dreaming about my future and imagined what I wish to have. I cut out a picture of Vancouver and stuck on top of my laptop on the wall. I start telling my friend about my dream to live in Canada, but my friends were always laughing at me and not taking me seriously. It was about a year later that I got my admission for graduate studies in Germany, and in 2009 I moved there. I could not believe how everything happened in last moment. Everything was happening like part of chain of events that helped each other so that I ended up in Germany.
I did not have a rich family to support me and I worked almost all of my life, especially in Germany. My parents divorced when I was 6 or 7, and I was raised with my grandma. Germany for me was beyond my dreams. I got my Master’s degree and I started looking for jobs to stay in Germany. I could not get a job in Germany but among all my job rejections, I won the USA green card by lottery!
My whole my life is like magic that I would like to write a book about it. I came to the USA with only $1500 and I started everything from zero. God always helped me and heard my prayers. Positive thoughts always helped me to stay away from problems and it was all just like magic. It was not only about car or place to live or even about getting my PhD in USA and that I am currently a PhD student, there were many other dreams that came true and are still coming.
A couple days ago I was driving to my work and I just said thank you Lord. I was driving in a Nissan Altima 2015, the imaginary car that I was driving when I first watched The Secret documentary, and I am not in Vancouver, I am in the USA. I am just grateful to God for all he gave me. I try to be a good human to be grateful for what God gives me as gifts. Just never give up, believe and trust in God, you will achieve your goals in life. God is amazing, he never leaves us alone.
