Grateful For Being Surrounded By People I Love!
First of all, thank you to Rhonda Byrne and The Secret team for enlightening me and thus, enabling me to completely change my life for the better.
I have written a story here before so this is my 2nd time. The first time I wrote, I had mentioned about how positivity changed my life and how I lost 35 kg.Â A lot has happened since the last time I’ve written. It has been 3 years since I’ve been practicing the exercises in The Magic. I try to incorporate the practices into my daily life and it has caused tremendous changes, trust me.
My mother had always been overprotective or at least that was what I thought she was. Now that I’m in my early twenties, I realize that she was abusing me. She also prevented me from keeping in touch with my family. I was unhappy and I knew that other mothers weren’t like her.
Early this January, she was diagnosed with schizophrenia and that explained her erratic behavior. My life took a totally different turn after that. My father took me in and I finally got a chance to be with my family. I don’t have siblings but my cousins and I have grown so close and we are like siblings. I am surrounded by people I love and that love me. My father gives me freedom and at the same time, he’s guiding me through my degree.
Last year, I thought that I’d only be happy once I graduated, got a stable job, and moved somewhere for a fresh start. So I focused on working hard to get straight As, losing weight and building up my self-confidence. I remember breaking down a lot. It was a rocky 2 years for me but thanks to Rhonda, I managed to keep my positive drive going.
I still remember all that I did to improve myself and my perception of life. I read all of Rhonda’s books. My favorite is The Power and The Magic because they talk about loving life and gratitude. I also read Robin Sharma’s books and his Youtube videos. I remember watching Bob Proctor videos and Brendon Burchard’s videos on Youtube. I used to play them in the background while studying. My friend also introduced me to Blogilates as I was in the middle of my weight loss journey.
If you want to find a way to stay motivated throughout the day, I’d say start your day off with exercise because exercise releases endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. And Cassey Ho is a particularly positive and uplifting fitness guru. I realize that she incorporates positive thinking into her workout videos.
I also visualized a lot. I visualized freedom and happiness and being surrounded by loved ones. Every single day.Â And it came true. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I know this was really long but I just wanted to share my experience with you.Â Be grateful. Be passionate about life. Give thanks for everything, from food to nature and for everyone in your life.
Thank you again, to Rhonda and The Secret team for putting together the books, movies, and materials. And also to the Universe for somehow making me read it all. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
