From Dust To Diamonds.
I suffered from severe depression and other mental illnesses for over 6 years. Both of my parents were disabled and I always felt the need to take care of them to the best of my ability. My mom was in two major car accidents that lead her to having many, many surgeries. My dad is mentally and physically disabled which is where I got my mental illnesses from. I suffered with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and extreme anxiety. I put myself on the back burner and surrounded myself with nothing but negativity. I felt like a victim in life, like the whole world was against me. I’m almost 22 now, but I had to grow up very fast. My childhood was filled with drugs, pain, and money issues. I was constantly seeing terrible things. This affected me hard. Seeing my dad and brother in and out of jail became a norm. We lost our home that I grew up in. That devastated me, I was just in the 6th grade and had to see the sheriff throw our stuff out on the front lawn. Then we moved into a much smaller house with my mom’s ex husband, my brothers dad. I saw a lot of mental and physical abuse during that time. After saving some money me and my mom moved out into a nearby apartment. We lived there for about 8 years and we got evicted again.
Years later when I was turning 16 I got a job at a coffee shop. My boss Phil, has been my mentor til this day. He knew something was wrong and exposed my potential in life. Phil introduced me to The Secret when I was probably 18. I didn’t utilize it right away but I understood what I was doing wrong. It took a few years to get to where I’m at today. I’ve read and watched The Secret, took notes, moved on to The Power, The Magic, and now Hero. I suddenly had an epiphany. I bought the Gratitude Journal and began counting my blessings. I printed The Magic check and put $3,000 on it in 2014. In April of 2016 I received my $3,000 and more! I desperately needed a new car and had no one to loan me money or co sign because I had no credit. I thought to myself, “I’m not going to worry about how I will receive a car, I just will”, exactly what Phil had said. He would tell me “Don’t worry about how”. So My mom’s best friend came along and took me to her credit union and cosigned for me to get $2,000. The rest of my loan came from my boss/mentor Phil. He gave me $1500 to buy my car.
Every time I get in my car I say thank you as soon as I start my car. I plan my day ahead of time and write how I want my day to go. I practice the Law of Attraction every day. I ask, believe, and receive. I can go on and on about how I go about practicing the Law of Attraction. It has truly changed my life and it took all the negativity out. I find something positive no matter how negative the situation may be. I share as much knowledge as I can with my loved ones and even strangers about these books and the Law of Attraction. I tell my people to write a list of 5 to 10 things that they’re grateful for. I feel I should share my experiences and spread the positivity as much as I can. Thank you so much Rhonda Byrne for sharing your knowledge with the world.
