I Am My Own Hero.
I can not begin to express the amount of gratitude in my heart right now. There was a time in my life when I sat and cried every day. I was never the “perfect” student. I failed so many exams and retook so many years that I can not remember it all. I felt like there was no way that I would be holding a degree in my hand. I became so negative that my perfect relationship was deteriorating, I was putting on weight and I was failing most of my exams at university. I got tired of this. I got tired of living a lifestyle that made me feel so down all the time.
One of my friends showed me the movie called The Secret. I found it so fascinating but I never did anything about it. Years later, I thought about it when I was at my lowest. I picked that book up, I read it once, twice, three times, you get the picture! It became everything to me. I slept with it under my pillow, I picked it up in the morning and took it wherever I went. It was not easy but in the process of pretending to be positive, I became something else. I didn’t need anyone else to be happy. I became my own friend. My relationship became perfect and even after so many failures, I had the courage to keep going on.
The Secret helped me pass my driving test, get me my first part time job, made my relationship with my childhood sweetheart more perfect and can you believe who is graduating with a 2.1 Honours? I am!! I am waiting to hear back from a job interview next week, the first graduate job that I know I will get.
Being positive changes you. I am ready to become the best version of myself. To anyone who is reading this, I believe in you. It will all be okay. Just know that you are worth it and it is never too late to stop believing because all it takes is one thought.
Thank you Rhonda, thank you, thank you, thank you!
