Gratitude Is The Key.
My story is proof of how an attitude of gratitude can change your life.
I met my best half early this year. We hit it off so well and time passed so quickly. Though it was long distance, we were giving it our best effort to make things work. He was everything I ever wanted, my one man army and it felt like he was the reward for everything I ever did right in my life.
Then suddenly he started acting aloof and I started magnifying the little things. I am bad at confronting people so I kept over thinking everything so much, that in my mind, I started thinking that this was not going anywhere. When I asked him what was going on, he ended up telling me that he can not take our relationship to the next level.
I was devastated! I did not know what to do. I was venting it out to my bestie, who mentioned that maybe I should introspect about what went wrong. I realized, knowing how powerful my mind and thoughts were, that I just made a fool of myself by being so negative about everything. I wrapped this thought around my head as quickly as I could.
I did not know if I could even think of getting him back so I asked the Universe for me to see a green heart. If I saw a green heart today I said, I will give it another chance. If I do not see it then I will be bidding it goodbye.
Then, after just 2 hours of me asking fore my sign, I did see a green heart in the most random way! I made up my mind to believe it and not think about the ‘how’ but just be thankful. All I did from that very day on was to be happy and stay positive. I started writing down each day, 10 things that I really liked about him and that I was grateful about it. I not only did this as a ritual but I also believed in it and felt thankful with each cell in my body.
Things started slowly turning around. I did not get overwhelmed. I just kept calm, did my gratitude journal and kept positive thoughts for 28 days ! And yes ! He called me to say he loves me and wants to get married. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I can not even put into words how happy I am at the moment. Whoever is reading this, please do not give up on your love. Please do not second guess thinks and do not overthink things. Just be grateful for what you have and send out love. Everything will fall into place. Do believe it!
A special thankful to each and every one one of you who has shared a story here, you do not how much your stories have inspired me during my lowest lows. I owe you a lot ! Thanks a ton!
Loads and loads of love!
