It has been a long hard road since moving back to South Africa and nothing seems to have gone to plan. We moved back to one of the most beautiful places to live, but it is such a struggle to survive. The salaries down here are terrible but everything seems so much more expensive. The children are really happy here but as a parent it is very stressful wondering how you are going to be able to support them in the months ahead.
My Nanny did not show up for work one morning when I needed to get to work and after having lost one Nanny already, this was the last straw and I went into a downward spiral of depression. After 4 days of crying all day, every day, and not being able to sleep or eat due to stress I went to see my doctor. She gave me some sleeping tablets and some anxiety tablets.
After having a good nights sleep and an anxiety tablet it calmed me and gave me a bit of clarity to think properly. I remember using The Secret before and it had worked. I could not find my book as it was packed in one of the 20 boxes in the garage, so I jumped on line and went onto The Secret website.
I realized it was the gratitude that I had completely neglected all this time so set out writing everything I am grateful for down in a book 3 times a day.
Since doing this things in my life have started to change. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I can sleep and eat again without having to take tablets and I have faith that everything will work out for the best if I just stay positive.
The real power of The Secret for me was when my Nanny came back to work the next day and has been a ray of sunshine in house ever since. I went to buy a new glasses case as mine was broken and it was given to me for free. My mom called to say she was coming to visit and my husband has started a business with his family which will secure our future financially over time.
Although not every problem has been solved overnight, I now have the gratitude and faith that everything will work out for the best in the end. I have the utmost gratitude for The Secret and the real power it’s teachings bring.
Thank you to The Secret!
