Back in August I quit my job. I was offered it back but I prayed and ended up sticking to my decision to leave. All of my friends told me not to be silly and take my job back but I felt deep down that I would be okay.
A week later I was interviewed for a new job and was offered it, however, I would not be starting for a couple of weeks. Luckily I was starting my part time job around the same time but I was already financially strapped and three weeks without a full time job was not going to help the issue.
About a week before I started my full time job I came across The Secret. I had seen it in my Netflix catalog and wasn’t interested but somehow I ended up with the book in my lap. I read it and immediately believed it. It made so much sense to me. I remembered how I felt when I quit my job and how I knew somehow I would be okay and I was. I knew I was going to find another job and I did and all of this happened before even knowing The Secret.
With my new found knowledge, I began to create vision boards around the house. I chatted with friends who were going through similar depressing situations and encouraged them to read The Secret. We started the 28 day gratitude challenge.
I was down to my last eight dollars and was not getting paid for another week or so. I needed gas, more money for the train and groceries but I did not let it get me down as usual. I just knew a way would present itself. Out of the blue two of my friends deposited money into my account. For no reason, just because. A week later, again I’m down to my last bit and I needed just ten dollars worth of gas to get me to my payday and $15 for my metro card. I only had twenty dollars left. As I was looking through my wallet I found a $5 prepaid gas card I got from an old car insurance company. So I was able to put $10 in my tank and use the other $15 for my metro card.
I was told that I would not get paid from my new full time job until October but received a check for my first week, yesterday. I’ve been taken out to dinner by family and friends for no reason on days where I have had no food in my house. I’m happier than I have been in years with just pennies to get by but I HAVE been getting by! I cry almost daily because of the great things that have been happening because I know more is to come.
I have focused all of my energies to being a positive person. It was hard at first because I used to be an all around negative person looking at everything as half empty, but not anymore. I’ve gotten two of my friends to start to live more positively as well and they have both seen changes in the way life has played out. I’m very grateful.
