So you know how a lot of people sacrifice their future for instant gratification? Well here is a story about a different kind of instant gratification. The Secret kind.
It was the first of November and my husband and I had just gotten our own apartment and I was laying on my couch scrolling on Facebook. It had been a fairly typical day. I was just enjoying some quiet time since my kiddo was sleeping. So I saw a picture of a baby gate fence around a lit up Christmas tree and thought to myself that it was clever because it would keep the toddler off the tree. Well, then I looked up in my front room and found the perfect spot for us to put our tree this year. Then immediately my self doubt came in and said, “we can’t afford a tree.” I thought back, yeah, but I can still pretend and imagine it. So I scrolled through a bunch of Christmas tree ideas. Picking and choosing each detail that I wanted.
Well literally, while I am in the middle of scrolling, at 9:10 pm, my cousin calls me and she is really excited. She says she has a Christmas present for me if I want it. She goes on to explain how her neighbor just got a new tree and how they want to give away their old one. It will come with all it’s lights and ornaments and they want to know if we want it?!
Of course I said yes! All I could think was that I instantly attracted that to me through The Secret. It’s changing my life!
I call that instant gratification. The right kind! The kind that everyone needs to know and experience! I’m so thankful for everything I have learned and experienced because of The Secret.
