My pledge for the 16th year
When I was 16 years old I made a pledge to lose my virginity. I had no knowledge of the Secret and how positive thinking would send out a vibe of confidence and pride. Every day after my birthday I would think of my pledge, without knowing how I’d accomplish my goal, and every day my determination grew. Finally, a few months before the school year ended, I went on a date with a girl, who I did not have any interest in and only went with her because I was too caring to hurt someone’s feelings by telling them that I was not wanting such a relationship with such a girl. About 15 minutes after the date began, the girl asked if I wanted to have sex. And I said, “Hell no.”
The funny thing is, when I truly wish for something to occur, yet have no knowledge of how I’d do it, I find myself in situations where my goals are met with the door to success. Yet the path to the door is not appealing to my standards, and I have to make a choice whether or not my goal is more important than who/what the door of success consists of.
