Keep On Keeping On
Well, I first heard of The Secret a little over a month ago. My boyfriend and I ended our 11 year relationship, in March. I was caught off guard and distraught. During the first few days of the break up, I searched for relationship advice online (I know, right?). I found the advice not relevant to my situation and ended reading love stories instead. This one gal’s love story mentioned The Secret and how she has always believed. I wondered what ‘The Secret’ was, but never looked into it. The next morning, after a run, I decided to watch something on Netflix…as I scrolled to watch something I saw ‘The Secret’. At this point, I felt obligated to watch, something wanted me to watch this. I did and…I can’t even describe how it made me feel. I told a friend of mine about it (I felt like I needed to tell the world) and she already knew and practiced The Secret.
After being in a relationship for so long, at such a young age, I forgot about who I was. I didn’t know what I wanted. After some heavy thought, I want three things: I want to get into this nursing program, I want my boyfriend back (he’s definitely the one), and I want to buy a house. I have been living The Secret for about three weeks.
Although, I don’t have much success to report, I believe the Universe is slowly at work here. Last week, my boyfriend called and said he missed me. In one day, the Universe sent him a collection of things that reminded him of me, or us, or both. He sent them all to me in a text message yesterday. I know the Universe is at play. I find it difficult at times to constantly live The Secret, but these instances where the signs I needed to continue forth…a reminder to not give up.
I find everyone’s success stories inspirational. Thank you for sharing and encouraging us newbies to keep on working.
