In May 2007 I picked up The Secret after hearing about it from co-workers. Suddenly I was smiling. How could I not, I was the master of my own universe.
It said start out with something small that you know if it happens you did this. Well, 3 years prior I lost a gold bracelet of great monetary value. At first I was ill that I had lost it, and started searching frantically, then I realised both I and my child were healthy and happy and it was a material thing and minor in the scheme of things. I figured it was in a snow bank and thought about it no more.
Now I thought, if that bracelet shows up it will be amazing. So I focused on it for about 2 weeks, and then forgot about it once again.
That July I treated myself and hired a cleaner to come once every 2 weeks. Working full time 12 hour shifts as a single parent was tiring, and I was now financially able to treat myself.
You guessed it, the first day she was there, SHE FOUND IT, deep down in the bottom of the love seat (that I might add I had checked several times, along with other pieces of furniture). Now, I thought, on to bigger and better things.
But sometimes I forget to believe, like us all, and I have written this to remind myself I am in charge of my own universe. SO ARE YOU! I BELIEVE!
