To start I would like to thank The Secret team and everyone who has submitted their stories. I read these stories every day and they always help me in staying positive.
Of course, sometimes the daily challenges can cause a lot of doubt and negativity. So today I was very tired after a long day of work. I had to pick up my kids and go for groceries. When I got to the store I did not have enough money so I felt frustrated and was thinking how I work so hard and still I was not making enough to cover all my costs. There was a homeless guy in front of the store and I snapped at him because I couldn’t pay for all my groceries. So I drove to the nearest ATM and saw that I had $100 dollars left in my savings. I just wanted to cry!
I took out the 100 dollars and while I was walking to my car I told myself to stand straight, take a deep breath and that everything was going to be OK. I drove back to the store to pick up the rest of my groceries and suddenly this little girl came running up to me and gave me the biggest hug! She ran her soft little fingers over my arm like she wanted to say it is going to be OK. Then she gave me a thumbs up. I felt so much joy at that moment. When I walked out of the store the same homeless man said to me “Sometimes when we feel frustrated we don’t see our blessings.”. It was such a beautiful thing to hear that I gave him the rest of my money. As I was driving home there was a car in front of me with a sign that said ” relax a little”.
It goes to show that even when we feel frustrated we should let go of the negativity and we will see that everything is going to be all right. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
