Onwards And Upwards
Last year ended in such a negative way… another year unemployed, bills were uncontrollably piling up, unnecessary arguments and a dull, negative atmosphere in the home, and so much more, it was making me cry to think I would have to relive this all again in 2013.
On New Year’s eve, I decided I was going to toughen up and get back on track. Being unemployed for five years and almost no clothes to wear,( I’ve worn the same pair of jeans for the past 12 months! ), I decided it was about time I enjoyed life like everyone else on here that shares their stories of joy. I come here everyday for inspiration and I am so grateful for all the stories shared here.
The Magic book has been my miracle. I’ve read it a few times and always stopped half way, uncompleted. On Saturday, I decided I was really going to stick to it. I spent almost two hours trying to figure out what I was grateful for. And it’s true, every time you think of things to be grateful for, you discover more and more things about yourself. I didn’t let it stop at just the 10 things The Magic tells you to write about everyday. Each time I felt gratitude and love, I would write it in my Journal and without fail, I re-read all my entries everyday.
I am on Day 5 and I just want to share with you that I have today been offered a job in a Magic Circle firm in the city!! And you all know how hard it is right now to get your foot in the door with work especially when you live in a country that has experienced an economic downfall. They have offered me full training and market rate salary. For someone who has been unemployed for 5 years, this is like a dream come true to know that I can get back to work and almost carry on from where I left off in terms of career satisfaction and rewards.
To you, my friend, be grateful for everything that God blessed you with in the past that you didn’t even ask him for, and humble yourself that you are still alive today to walk on this beautiful planet and experience LIFE. Believe in your dreams and let it go, release it into God’s hands and let him pave a way for you because it will always be the way that you will Love and be grateful for. It really feels wonderful to close my eyes at night and dream of positive things happening the next day because without fail, everyday so far has been a magnificent outcome and our home is filled with so much love and happiness right now. I don’t even think or look back at the negative things that I experienced. I no longer live there and don’t know the person who did. Only Five days into practicing The Magic and life right now is so beautiful! Amazing!!
My heartfelt thanks to everyone that has shared their stories here. You probably didn’t even know this, but you have all been my inspiration. I’m so looking forward to 2013 being the best year of my Life. I can finally shower my child with all the things I’ve always wanted to give him and finally, finally, finally be on our way onwards and upwards!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
