Just The Beginning.
Even though I’m 62, I feel like I am just beginning.
I first read The Secret about 5 years ago during a time in my life when my 3rd marriage had failed. I had rented a bedroom from a bachelor friend and almost every night was a party. I began a downward spiral of drinking to excess due to depression, but the alcohol only made it worse. I had also previously read The Secret Of The Ages which a lot of material that had been used in The Secret. I met a woman and moved in with her. Her drinking fueled my drinking and vice versa. That relationship exploded and I moved back in with my buddy, only now I was living in the one room apartment above his garage.
I began applying the ‘ I am’ techniques and seeing myself doing better. I remember praying for a sober, well off woman. Then one night my roomie told me of a party I should go to where there would be lots of successful women. So, I went and within 10 minutes was introduced to Carrie. Carrie owned her own business and was very successful at it. We had only dated for a few weeks when she asked me to marry her.
Although I turned her down several times (it seemed a bit fast for me) we were finally married two years ago. She had never drank or smoked, so I gave up drinking and smoking cigars. It’s now been 2 1/2 years since I took a drink and 1 1/2 years since I smoked a cigar. We have moved from her former house into a 5,000 sq. ft. home on 5 acres. It’s a gorgeous home. I have anything I have ever wanted including a very loving relationship. Her 2 daughters have both married and have a daughter each, so I have a wonderful new family. We have a close relationship with Jesus and are both in excellent health.
It’s funny to think I went from a one room garage apartment to a 5 bedroom home, have gotten a big raise with the band and love everyday of my life. Every day in everyway, it’s getting better and better.
