Recently a girlfriend of mine came to me and told me of her discovery of “The Secret” while watching the Oprah Winfrey show, and that she had started to read the book, and she had had a permanent smile for 3 days. I flirted with the idea of purchasing the book and DVD for myself.
One day I decided that I did have to read it. I purchased the book on a Wednesday during my lunch hour and sat in the Mall parking lot reading the book because I was so excited about the concept. I began to follow The Secret from that day. I was partially through the book by Saturday but I was already beginning my ritual of Gratitude in the morning.
I have been hunting for a place to rent for the last 2 months as, my parents are selling their home. My son & I have been staying with them sharing a room for the last 5 months, since I left my husband. I had been a slave to negative thinking for the last 20 years and after reading the book began to believe that my life was about to change instead of worrying how I was going to afford a divorce as a single mom, where I would live, and what I really wanted as a source of wealth and a career. I decided that it was already mine and that all would be taken care of.
That Saturday I went to look at two places to live — one a small dive that really wasn’t that nice, and taking a chance one place half an hour out of Calgary. I drove with my parents and my son out of town and up the driveway of a beautiful 15 acres of land with 2 full grown horses and the most beautiful colt. I looked to my right and on the back of the truck sitting in the driveway was an advertisement for a local company called the Divorce Consultants. The owner of the home, who only lives there part time, works for this company and can help me for half the price of a lawyer! He is also willing to house me and my son, teach us to care for the horses as well as ride. (My dream from a little girl has always been to own a boarding/riding ranch.)
I found that with the major shift in attitude and thought within 1 week my entire life had turned around!!!! It was proof to me that Gratitude is the Attitude and What you think about you really do bring about!!!! Amazing!
