It started out by me moving to Johannesburg – The City where dreams come true. I stayed with my aunt and things were going really well. Until she started to change. I don’t know why, but I felt that she didn’t want me to stay with her anymore even though she didn’t express it to me, her actions showed. So immediately and in secret I started to look for places to stay that would be close to work. A month went by and things really became worse by the day. I couldn’t even sleep properly and I didn’t feel comfortable like before. So I decided that I’m moving out by the 1st of September, I didn’t know how or where exactly, I just knew that I’d be out! The month of August came to an end and I decided to take a trip back home to visit. That’s when I discussed how unhappy I was staying with my aunt. My parents were not pleased at how I could keep this to myself for such a long time.
While I was at home I did my homework about possible places to rent and the possible costs. There was one in particular that I attracted and liked very much and I got into contact with the agent. A week turned into two weeks away from work
with permission from my manager. But the time came when I had to come back to work, but still I literally had no place to stay and I had no intentions of going back to where I stayed before. So I told my work colleagues of my dilemma and they literally helped me organise a place to stay at a colleagues place.
I arrived back to Johannesburg, came straight to work, had a shower at work that morning (luckily we have a gym at work), and basically I had a place to sleep and food to eat and great company at that! My colleague has been so good to me that even after working hours she would go with me and we would go view these places.
I still had that specific one in mind and I had the chance to go view it and it was perfect but pricey excluding water and electricity. I loved it, I spoke to the agent and I submitted my details and was ready to fill in the lease forms. Three days passed and I called the agent, but he ignored my calls and sent me a text saying that the owner of the apartment decided to move back in. I was crushed, I didn’t know what I did wrong in attracting this place.
My colleagues would give me words of encouragement like, “Don’t worry there is a better one on the way.” I really didn’t feel like it, but I forced myself to believe that indeed a better one would be available to me by the end of the week. I also remember forgiving my aunt for all the things she put me through, I completely let go and I told myself that everything will be okay. I faked the attitude until I believed it! I remember writing in my diary “My apartment will be affordable, it will be close to work and it will be beautiful and peaceful.”
Later on in the day I told a work collegue in passing about my dramas and my need for an apartment. She forwarded links to my email address and I took a look at them the very next morning. I called two people. One was unavailable and the other told me that they would get back to me. Two hours later the one who was unavailable got back to me and she wanted me to view the place as soon as I could. I wanted to see it immediately after work. Later we went to view it and I fell in love! This apartment had everything. It was fully furnished, rent would include water and lights, and the landlord was such a joy and she liked me too, but she told me that other people were also going to view it. That evening I hardly slept because I was so thankful for that apartment. I was in awe and I literally felt that it was mine and I couldn’t believe it, but I did! I prayed prayers of gratitude for the apartment.
The following morning she called me and told me that she really liked me and would like for me to move in if I was still interested. I immediately said YES and I made arrangements for payment of the deposit. I immediately moved in during the weekend and I absolutely loved it! It’s the best apartment for me. So peaceful, so tranquil, and I even have a pool facing me. It’s an absolute joy to know that I live in such a lovely apartment. I’m so thankful!
Whatever you desire will happen, but you have to be pure in spirit, forgive if you need to, and you really need to act like it’s true. Without fail it will come to pass, if not something better is on its way, just be patient!
