I Love My Life!
About three years ago, while in my late 20’s, I was depressed and an emotional mess. I woke up every morning in a routine: I woke up at 5:45 am to walk into a job that required me to assist people with drug addictions and mental issues, which contributed to my stress. Once I was there, I drank my coffee and heard co workers complaints about administration and gossip of other co workers. My day was filled with negativity. At 4pm, I would go home to my mothers home, where I lived due to student loan debt. My relationship with my mother and sister were horrible; usually conversations would end on how I was not living my life the proper way. Arguments were hurtful and draining.
On Dec. 23rd, I walked into the department bathroom and cried. I stood in the stall and asked God to help me because I could not make it another day with the pain in my heart. My best friend, who is employed with me, talked to me that day and told me to pray every day, be grateful, and recommended The Secret.
At first, I was very skeptical and said “How is this going to help me change my life”. It took a year before I actually followed the entire practice, but when I did I found my smile again. I was the happy person that everyone remembered from years past. The first change was when I was promoted at work, and rather than listen to negative co workers, I encouraged them to be thankful for employment.
Then I decided to have fun and I created my dream board. First I posted a downtown loft picture. After living with my mother three years, I felt it was time to be back on my own. Three months later I moved downtown into my very own loft. I also posted pictures of athletes because I wanted to be healthy once again. Four months later, I won a contest at a local gym and received a free membership for a year.
Even though my relationship with my mother was not fully mended, I woke up every morning and was grateful for all she had done. We now have a wonderful relationship and I am truly grateful to be able to talk to her without arguing. I know I would not be able to be in such a wonderful stage of my life without the LOA. I just want to thank Rhonda Byrne for her wonderful work. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And I want to thank my best friend for recommending the book. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
