Gratitude Is Everything!
A year ago I was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. This came as a terrible shock as I had always taken my good health for granted. I had thought of myself as fit and well with a good diet and lots of exercise. I was always doing all the right things. This diagnosis came out of the blue. Although it was a shock I was more upset for my children as I knew how devastated they would be.
I don’t know how it happened but I found the courage to take on a completely positive attitude right from the start and refused to believe that there was anything wrong with me. Almost miraculously, people and books and films kept appearing in my life. I knew nothing about the ‘law of attraction’ and had never heard of the film, ‘The Secret’. I just couldn’t get enough of all this new knowledge. I read everything I could about the ‘law of attraction’ and I think I must have watched ‘The Secret’ at least 70 times over the last year! Every time I watch it I get more from it.
I started to be grateful for every single little thing in my life. I bought The Secret ‘Gratitude’ book. I have now started my second gratitude book! This has been a joy to complete. I write in it most days and it has become like a diary and a scrapbook and somewhere to actually write down ‘Thank yous’. I write only about the positive things that have happened to me during the day. I omit anything of a negative nature. It helps me to remember to be grateful every day. I used to take so many things for granted but not anymore!
Since last year I have become better and better and now I feel fit and well again. I underwent a course of chemotherapy which certainly helped and my last scan showed excellent results. My consultant at the hospital said I have had done amazingly well. He said ‘Whatever you are doing, keep on doing it’!
I truly believe that if I had not discovered ‘The Secret’, all The Secret books I have read, and the many other inspirational books plus my lovely ‘Gratitude’ journal, I would not be where I am today. From my reading, I think I also understand now why I developed cancer in the first place but that is another story for another day.
Thank you so much, Rhonda Byrne, and thank you to all the people on The Secret team. You are a true inspiration and I feel I owe you so much. I shall continue to be grateful for everything and I know in advance that I shall continue to get better and better. I know this because I have already thanked the Universe!
