I read The Secret a few years ago and could not ever get it to “work” for me, so I let it go.
About a month ago I started thinking about it again. I thought I might re-read the book. I looked for it for a few minutes and I couldn’t find it, then I got distracted by my kids. A little over a week ago I found the book, I think by using The Secret unknowingly. I re-read it and got on here several times a day a read everyone’s success stories.
I said to myself that I wanted to win the lottery. Actually mega millions. I thought it, I believed it, I dreamed of everything I would buy and do with the money. I thought I had it all worked out. So I went on Thursday before the Friday night drawing and purchased a ticket. Everyday I dreamed of the money, and felt happy for winning and having that money. Well, I was busy on Friday and I didn’t see the actual drawing, but around 11:45 pm I checked my ticket against the website and you know what happened?
I did NOT win the lottery. I was crushed. I felt utterly devastated, I had fully thought I would win. Well, Saturday I was getting to together with my family to celebrate Easter, and I was just in a funk the whole time. I realized at one point in the day that I needed to change my attitude if I every wanted to see The Secret “work”.
Anyways, later that night at home, I told my husband that we could just let the kids sleep in bed with us because it was storming and I figured our daughter would wake up and come in with us any ways. So I was laying in bed holding my 3 month old son, who was asleep. My 18 month old daughter fell asleep next to my husband, who was also asleep. I looked down at my son, who just happened to smile at that moment in his sleep, then within a minute or two my daughter stirs and reaches out and grabs my sons hand. They sleep holding hands for a few minutes.
I suddenly realized that I was completely grateful for my family. For my husband and my children. In that moment I was filled with so much joy, love and happiness that I actually started crying. I went to sleep with a huge smile on my face and woke up the same way this morning.
Today I have felt like a new person because, while I didn’t receive the millions of dollars I had asked for from the universe, I received something a million times better. I received gratitude, and the ability to cherish everything in my life. I have no doubt that everything I ask for will come true now, because the universe helped me find the key.
