Making the Impossible…Possible.
I truly believe the Secret has brought this school into my life for a reason.
It was the ending of the 08-09 school year and I was in a rut. I was going to this Montessori school that I wasn’t gaining or learning anything from, plus the people there were very rude and belligerent. So I started on my school search because I never wanted to go back there before. And a few years before that I was in a depression, looking for a school I could go to… now that was by far the lowest point in my life. So I ended up going to this school, leaving, and going back to the Montessori school because I had no other option.
So it was the end of the year and I was just plain sick and tired of my Montessori school and people never thought I would leave again because I had already left before. This is when my best friend’s aunt introduced me to the Secret. I loved everything about it- how it made me feel and how awesome it worked on little things! And my friend’s aunt is this truly remarkable person who is living with a life threatening disease and walks around like she’s the most beautiful diamond anyone has ever seen. She’s amazing, and she’s the reason why I am like I am now.
I then began on my school search, not knowing what I had gotten myself into since I was not enrolled at any school for the next year. One of my friends was begging me to go to AHS, which is this highly expensive, all girls catholic school. So I thought, why not? I’ll go and shadow at this school and see what it’s like.
I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved this school. Everyone was like family, and no one wore makeup or did their hair because no one cares what you look like, its all girls. I instantly fell in love but knew in the back of my mind that there’s no way I could convince my family to pay the huge amount of money to send me there, it was simply impossible.
So I put the Secret to action, and started acting like I had already gotten accepted, and I started buying the school shoes that I had my eye on and I truly believed every single day that I will go to this school. I will get an awesome education next year. It’s what I was craving.
My mom had been calling and bugging them for weeks and weeks and weeks til they gave me a chance. My mom was the first who told me that this school wasn’t going to happen, then it was her family, my friends, and my former classmates who all told me I wouldn’t get in and it’s impossible. My mom kept asking me where else I wanted to go to school, and I would always answer, “no where. I want to go to AHS.”
This went on the entire summer, the people I love all around me telling me I wouldn’t get in.
But I was relentless, I told everyone that I would be going there and I really believed that I would attend AHS. I would dream about how my mother would tell me I got accepted, and how excited I would be. I visualized the feeling of the uniform skirt, the locker, the classes, the friends. I visualized myself in the uniform all the time.
Weeks went by and nothing happened except AHS asking for my transcripts and papers and we kept sending them and sending them and sending them. I started to become very weary and nervous that school starts in a few weeks, and I wasn’t enrolled anywhere.
But what really kept me going, was looking at the stars every night. They made me feel like everything was going to work out and be okay. And I told myself, “within the next 5 days I will get in, I will get in.”
Then two days later, almost a week before school, my counsellor called to let me come in for an interview. So I did and I simply told her that I would do whatever it takes to go to this school. She then told me that she would call us tomorrow to let us know if I got accepted.
Then my grandfather told me he would do anything to get me into this school, even pay the bill for me. I couldn’t believe that things were starting to move around in the Universe. For me!
The next morning my mother woke me up, telling me that I got accepted!!! I started crying tears of joy and it felt like 20 pounds have been lifted from my shoulders. It was truly an awesome day and one I will always remember.
Then I went in, picked my classes, got my uniform, and everything else. That night, I went outside with my blanket and dog and thanked the stars and the universe for all they’ve done for me. The Secret is truly remarkable.
Keep believing that you will get what you want, no matter how many weeks have gone by. Don’t give up on your hopes and dreams just because they’re the farthest thing from possible.
