I Am Grateful, Therefore I Am
All my life I always knew “something” – I knew that God (& everyone has a different name/ title) wanted us to be happy. I knew it deep within, but as I went through life the idea of God that other people had – that if you “suffer” in this life, you will have abundance in the next – got under my skin.
I discovered The Secret after watching an Oprah show. Within the same week I bought the book & read it… I was amazed. I used The Secret to get a new job, but after 6 months I was unhappy at that job because it took me too long to get to & from work every day (about 2 hours). I then told myself that I would be working for another company, deleted all my “personal” mails from my Inbox, drafted a resignation letter, and applied for two positions. After a week I received a call from a lady who owns a Media Consultancy, & she said she had a position available. What shocked me is that I had never met her before OR sent my CV to her, AND her company wasn’t one of the companies I applied at. My mom told me not to question but to rather be grateful. I went for the interview, was offered the job, & the company’s offices are less that 15 minutes away from where I live. All this happened in early 2008.
Fast forward to the present. 6 weeks ago I decided that I now wanted to spend my days working for a cause & not just a company. 3 weeks ago I was led to the position I want via the internet – the moment I read the job description I knew that this was where I wanted to be. One thing that’s important for me was that the cause I worked for be PRO something and not anti something… which is what this organisation does, they are PRO something ;). The moment I applied I deleted all my personal mails, drafted my resignation letter, packed my personal things from my current office, told friends & people I knew via work that I was leaving, and when they asked what I would now be doing I told them the truth… I told them I had been offered a position in communications at the organisation I have applied to. I even made business cards, drafted a “farewell” email to friends, & drafted my letter of appointment from the new organisation (which I read often). Yesterday I realised that the address I had put under ‘your place of work’ in my appointment letter was incorrect – it was street, NOT avenue. I changed that this morning & printed a new letter of appointment and signed it with gratitude.
The Secret has changed my life – I smile sooo much more, I am so aware of how I feel, & if I don’t feel good I do something that will make me feel great, AND I write in my diary every single day for the things I am grateful for.
Thank you Rhonda & The Secret teachers… you have brought joy to my life! I know you are all blessed for sharing such truth with the world.
Oww and with regards to the position in communications at the organisation I want to work for – of course it is mine!
