My college dream
I moved away for college because I was extremely unhappy at home. I was in a loving home, however my parent and step parent’s alcohol and drug abuse were too much for me to endure emotionally any longer. I decided to attend one of the colleges I had applied for that was 2 hours away.
Shortly before moving my belongings away I came upon the book “The Secret”; belonging to my mother. She told me about her positive experiences she attributed to influences from “The Secret”. It was then I started reading “The Secret” and packed it with me on my journey to college. Oddly enough I did not use the knowledge for prosperity in college, not for grades or inspiration. I wrote down what I wanted in the near future. I wrote that I wanted to find a boyfriend I would move in with, that would love me and make me happy. I remember reading about a women who would only sleep on half of her bed so as to leave that half of the bed for her man, the man she believed would come to her. I too started to practice this.
I began school in January… by my second semester (May- of the same year) I had met my current boyfriend of 3 years. By the following September we were living together (and still are living together). Shortly after me and my current boyfriend had moved in together I spoke to an estranged friend… and her comment excitedly was “well, you got exactly what you wanted!”. She was right. I had got exactly what I had asked the universe for. I had specifically asked to find a man who loved me and who I would move in with (to avoid moving home).
My mother has won more then a few draws at work (most recently a trip to Banff) and she laughs and has also asked for the book “The Secret” back… which I plan on returning but she knows I’ve read it over and over again and she knows I believe so there is little urgency as she want the best for me and I will achieve that .. and if that means keeping the book a bit longer, thats fine.
