Letting go of fear
Firstly, I really just want to thank everyone who has sent in a story because they have all truly inspired me! I myself sent in a story a couple years ago, but much has changed in my life since then.
During the past few years, I have struggled with my weight, skin issues, and just overall dissatisfaction with my outer self. I tried and I tried to lose the excess weight, clear my skin, and create my perfect body through The Secret, but it just didn’t happen. Here was my problem: fear. All of my negative feelings towards myself were based in fear. I was afraid of weight, what others thought of my appearance, and afraid of being unhealthy. Every time I started doing well and feeling good again, some doubt and fear would creep up and I often thought “Will I have to try so hard forever?”.
Well, I’ve recently realized this mistake. Trying gets you no where… you have to LET things happen and know that you already have what you want in the very moment you have asked. In the book, I often have re-read the part about weight (so many times in fact that the pages are falling out in that spot!). That act in itself is evidence of me constantly trying to do it, rather than letting myself just have my perfect weight!
Today, I have let go. I truly know that I have my perfect body now. I deserve to be happy and accept myself (and so do you)! I’m not going to write an update later concerning my weight, because I don’t see a need. If you know The Secret, then you know I already have my perfect body as you read this. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU BELIEVE.
I am now eating all I want and exercising only when I feel like it (usually just walks or bike rides when it’s nice out or I need to go somewhere). Life is easy and I feel so free and happy. I understand that we are unlimited and can create anything we want in our lives!
