The Secret Changed My Life!!!
I want to thank The Secret team and Rhonda for giving me this opportunity to share my experience. I have always looked at the stories in this website and they have always uplifted my spirit but I never could gather the courage to write my own story. So, here it is and it is a pretty big deal for me.
I come from a very strict family that believe that in order to live a happy life, you have to make everyone around you happy. I was raised with the idea that if you do well in school, in your job and you are always there for everyone, then you are a good person and deserve love. If you don’t meet those criteria then you don’t deserve love. Growing up I always felt like I had to “become deserving” to receive love from others. I completely forgot about self love and self acceptance. It took me a long time to realize that I did not need to fit in a category for people to love and support me.
I was in university when my brother encouraged me to watch a video called “The Secret”. At first I was completely hesitant. I said that I did not want to watch it, it seems weird. Then one day just out of sheer curiosity, I picked up the DVD and I played it in my computer. It was the year 2010. It then changed everything about me. The way I started to notice things, say things and imagine things. The Secret changed the way I saw my family. I started to focus on their caring nature, always making me food, always making sure I was safe. Instead of focusing on how those things used to bug when my mom would call and check on me, to thanking the Lord for having a mom who cares to check on me. I started to thank God for the smallest things that happened to me during each day, from catching a bus on time to meeting a great new friend. I was so focused on just focusing on good things in people that negativity and judging never occured for me.
Just recently I saw the list of things I wrote down 3 years ago. My list included: get a nice car, get married, have a better relationship with my family, get a government job, get into a routine of self care and practicing positive affirmation.
I got a car within a year from writing it down. I now own a beautiful Infinity 2012 car. I got married last year to a wonderful man whom I love so dearly!! My relationship with my family is constantly getting better, as they love and respect me. One week ago I got an interview with the government office and now they are checking my references. I can not thank the Lord enough for all these amazing things that have been bestowed on me. I am so happy and prosperous. I am already imagining myself writing a goodbye email to my current job!
I also came across this amazing writer and speaker name Louis Hay. She is so incredible. Because of her loving words on the audio book and through Youtube I was able to combat depression and see things with a clear mind. I now practice positive affirmation on a daily basis. It first took 21 days of practice. Now that is the first thing I open on my phone in the morning. I am so grateful for everything in my life, the list is endless.
I love this life and I truly want to thank Rhonda for this gift. The Secret changed my life.
