I’m Living My Dreams
Hello. I’d like to share my story about the dream I had when I was a teenage girl.
I had always been interested in Spain. It all started in 2002 (I was 16) when I watched the 2002 World Cup. There was a particular Spanish player I loved (kinda childish, I know) and I started to love everything about Spain. I said to myself that I would go to Spain and meet him. I even wanted to be a sport journalist so that I could go around the world, interviewing the athletes I loved. I didn’t know how this would happen, but I just kept believing.
When I told my dream to other people, most of them said, “You’re not gonna make it,” others would say, “Yeah, right,” and only few people said, “Good luck. I know you can.” I didn’t care the negative things people told me, I just knew deep in my heart that I would go to Spain. I didn’t know how, I just knew.
I held this dream within me for years. I loved everything about Spain so much that I decided to take a Spanish course and read great things about Spain.
Then, in 2007 I discovered The Secret. At first, I applied The Secret for my love life. I wanted to attract a life partner because I had never had a boyfriend for all my life. I joined a dating site and sent messages to every man I was interested in. Yet, none of them really paid attention to me.
I didn’t give up. In November 2007, I wrote the qualifications of the man I wanted to marry. I wrote everything, from physical appearance, the way he would treat me, his personalities, etc. Then, in December 2007, a Spanish man wrote me a message from the dating site, telling me that he was interested in making a friendship with me and that he would love to teach me Spanish.
I replied to his message and soon enough, we were friends. And 3 months later, we were boyfriend and girlfriend. We never met each other, we spoke different languages, yet we fell in love with each other and I knew he was the one.
Today, June 2012, I am writing this story in my beautiful home in Spain. When I look back to the past, I didn’t know how I would go to Spain. I just wanted to visit Spain, but in fact, God gives me a lot better things; He gives me the love of my life and Spain. My husband loves travelling so much and so he takes me to places I have never been before.
Everyday when I wake up in the morning, I am thankful for everything I have received in my life. I have not only seen Spain, but the world. I am now living my dreams. So if you have dreams you want to achieve, just keep believing in yourself and ignore all negative things people tell you. You create your own life.
P.S.: Thank you Rhonda and all The Secret team that have shared this magnificent secret to the world.
