I Have Taken Control Over My Happiness
Before watching The Secret and purchasing the book, I was on a slow but nonetheless unproductive path to a dreadful future, which I created in my mind. I was always a happy and positive person throughout my young life and teen years, and had attracted many good things to me without knowing that it was the law of attraction that brought me these things. I acquired friends (where I once had none), jobs, blissful romantic relationships, and opportunities would just appear for me because I always believed deep down in my heart that all that I deserved would become mine.
I had a strong faith, which is what always kept me believing in the unseen, and I truly believed that everything I prayed for I simply left in gods hands, believing I would receive. However despite all the good in my life, I still had a dark cloud that seemed to enjoy preying on me. I had suffered from periodic depression from a young age, and I had never sought treatment or counseling for it because I believed I had to conquer it on my own. For years I succumbed to it, I would wake up and sometimes for days at a time I would dread my day and dread my life. No matter how sunny it was outside, I saw the world as if it was grey, dreary, and bleak. When I fell into these ‘dark holes’ as I called them, I believed that I had no control over life or over any circumstance that came my way.
I always thought everything happens for a reason so I must simply go along with it. I would become frustrated and my mother would suggest time alone to relax, because the more time I sat alone with my thoughts, the more my thoughts destroyed me from within. I truly believed that my mind was my enemy and would one day be the death of me. I would begin to feel helpless, to dwell on all the bad things in my life, I saw the world as a cycle of living only to die and nothing in between. My mind told me that life is horrible, that everyone and everything you love will die, and I was obsessed with the idea of ‘time’. I would dwell on past regrets, wallow in remorse and guilt, view the future with disgust at the thought of aging, and I would blame myself for everyone else’s problems. I always felt that time was my enemy, and that it was against me.
After watching The Secret, my life has truly transformed. I have regained the person that I always was before I allowed my mind to control me and attempt to destroy me. I have now rightfully taken back control of my thoughts and refuse to let another negative thought enter my psyche. I have taken my life back and I see life the way I had always wanted to. I see the beauty in everything. I see the future that I want as the future that I will have undoubtedly. I see the success, the wealth, the relationships, the life that I desire as the life that I live every day. I feel blessed to wake up and face this wonderful world, and every day I meet new wonderful people.
I cannot thank Rhonda Byrne and all the great people behind ‘The Secret’ enough. They have given me the key to life, they have given the ‘real me’ back to ME where it belongs. I have never felt more exhilarated, more prosperous, more loved and more loving in my 22 years of life.
My previous views of ‘time’ have changed after a realization that time is simply a creation, and doesn’t actually exist. This alone was life altering for me, as I had always believed that time was against me, and that it was responsible for all the bad of the past and of the future. Now that I have cut the strings to these old ways of thinking, I have truly opened myself up to the heaven on earth that is LIFE. I live for the moment each and every day and I love the person that I am today. I live the life I love and love the life I live. For this and many more things, I am eternally grateful to God, the universe, ‘The Secret’ team, and to my best friend who put in the DVD without knowing how substantially it would change my life from there on. I now aspire to write books based on these principles for youths who suffer from low self-esteem, and give them The Secret so that they can understand their power and create the life they deserve.
