A Mighty Mouse Never Gives Up!
To be honest, I can’t even remember the exact moment when The Secret was brought into my life. It was more a series of events that led me to the power of The Secret.
I would have to say that I was a pretty successful student. I got all good grades in high school and continued to succeed in university. It wasn’t until the end of university that things began to change. I had always dreamed about going to medical school, but attempt after attempt, rejection after rejection, it just was not working out. Of course it was depressing to not be able to reach your goal even though you were taking all the right steps to get there.
Eventually I came to terms with not getting into medical school and took a year off to find my calling again. That year I found my calling again. After volunteering in a high school for a year, I had decided to become a teacher. I was passionate, determined and when that letter came in the mail there was no doubt in my mind that it was an acceptance into the school that I wanted to go to. I did it! But that was not nearly half the battle I was about to face. I graduated from teachers college successfully in 2011, however at that time there were too many teachers in the system. The regulations for hiring became stricter and it no longer mattered what connections you had that could help you get in. I was determined to be a teacher, and after putting that energy out into the universe, I got a call from an agency in England that was determined to hire me. It was about a month later that I moved to England and was living the dream!
When I returned for the summer, things hit another snag. I was seeing someone that I had fallen in love with and the on-again-off-again relationship was taking a toll on me. Not only was I faced with the prospect of not getting a job as a teacher, but the one person that I had loved with all my heart was hurting me. I was depressed and knew it. I turned to homeopathy, but it wasn’t helping. I kept thinking negative thoughts and putting myself down. Why couldn’t I get hired? Was I not good enough? Why doesn’t he love me? Why is my life not going the way I planned?
Not shortly after I returned from England and began my downward spiral into depression, I met with an astrologer who gave me guidance and clarification about the person I was and who I was destined to be. This was life changing for me. Being of Hindu faith, I’m a firm believer in astrology, so I took her words of positivity and encouragement and I ran with it. About 3 months later, I was hired as the education coordinator for a private school. It wasn’t my dream job, but it sure was a step in the right direction. I loved my job, but I wanted more. I wanted to be a teacher and I wasn’t going to settle for less. About 4 months into my job, I was speaking with a good friend, and she mentioned that not only is it good to talk about our dreams and goals, but sometimes writing them down on paper makes them seem more tangible. So after hanging up the phone with her, I did just that.
Can you guess what was first on the list? To get on the board as a teacher. Can you guess what happened the very next day? I received an email for an invitation to an interview for an application I had sent to the board. I couldn’t believe it! By this time I had read The Secret and was actively trying to incorporate it into my daily life. The more positive energy I put out there, the more can back to me. I ended up getting onto the school board as a supply teacher, and almost immediately I was getting contract work. My dream was coming to life faster that I expected.
My dreaming didn’t stop there. I had always dreamed about getting a motorcycle and after taking a riding safety course, two weeks later I had my first bike! How?!!! This was all because I put my thoughts and positivity out there. I was in every sense, living my dream!
Well it doesn’t stop there. Getting contract work teaching is great, but I needed something more permanent. I needed job security. For one year, I worked my hardest, I did everything I could to stand out. I talked to the right people, made the right connections, but mostly, I believed that it wouldn’t be long until I got my permanent teaching job. On September 4, 2015 I got the call that I was hired as a permanent teacher. After saying yes and hanging up the phone, I began to cry. All my hard work, all the positivity, all the faith had brought me to this wonder day. I was beyond excited.
This was even more proof to me that The Secret was more than just words in a book, it had the power to change my life. What was even more ironic was when I opened my email that very same day I got the call. By then I was receiving emails from The Secret website and was getting daily reminders of how my positivity would bring change. The email that I received that day from The Secret Daily Teachings was titled “Change…or…something more magnificent!” I read that email and began to cry again. Happy tears though. This was the universe telling me that what I was doing was heard.
My goodness, what a wonderful year 2015 was. Little did I know that 2016 would continue to be more magnificent. In 2014 I put down a down payment for a house that was to be built and ready for me in January 2016. It was always my dream to live in and own my own house, but more importantly to do it on my own. Today I am living in that my own very beautiful house. Living my dream!
Just recently I got back in touch with that first man I ever fell in love with. We have both changed and become great people with great things going for them. I will continue to believe that The Secret has brought us back together and will bring us to many more places in the near future.
I am so grateful for all my ups and downs, and for all the support I have had through the past few years. But most importantly, I am grateful for The Secret and how it has changed my life. I don’t know how it came into my life, but I wouldn’t go back and change a single thing.
Thank you for hearing my story.
