PREPARATION FOR THIS DAY
I grew up in a religious home. Money was the devil! I was taught that personal struggles will lead you to the gates of Heaven.
For many years my husband and I subconsciously sabotaged my own success. We struggled all the time with money, we never had enough for extras. We thought it was because we had four kids or we spent it foolishly. We were told we have to “tighten our belts” if we want to get ahead. We never spent foolishly, but we wanted to have fun too.
It wasn’t until my dad died that I tried to read the book “The Secret”. I could not get past the preface with out crying. I don’t know why but I kept on putting the book down. I went through a troubled depression, I was angry and very unhappy. I thought my husband was having an affair. We both own businesses and we share an office. I was ready to move out of the office as well as leave my husband for good.
I moved in with my mother for four weeks. My husband was devastated. During the four weeks I read “The Secret”, as well as several other self help books. I needed to change myself first. I needed to be happy now. The Secret helped me so much, but I had to read, watch the DVD, and listen to the audio tapes so that it became part of my DNA.
I’m very positive about my future. I’m so grateful that I started healing, because during the time I was at my mother’s, my husband let our beautiful home that we lived in for 15 years go into foreclosure. We will be OK, we have helped so many people in the past. We are now asking for help. My mother and brother will help. We are going to ask my cousin for help – all they need to do is be a co-signer on a new loan. We have more than enough funds to pay the mortgage. I know we will get the help we need.
I believe The Secret has prepared me for this day. I’m so much stronger today and confident help will come in time. Thank you so much Rhonda! I’m truly grateful for the way I feel now!
