Starting all over
I am a widow of 4 years. The day my husband passed away, I thought I too died. At least at the time I didn’t know I wanted to live any more. All my wants and desires were gone, until one day when a friend talked about seeing a DVD called “The Secret”. That day I remembered how life used to be. I was once happy. I once had “wants” and “desires”. I once lived “The Secret”. I needed to live it again. I went out and bought the book. It all made sense. If I wanted to be happy again, I had to want it.
I have always had a list of what I wanted. I have always called it “My Want List”, well before the Bucket List ever came out. I picture it in my mind all the time. I felt it in my heart, and I talked about it to anyone who wanted to listen. But, after my husband passed I was so depressed I forgot all about it. I wanted my “Want List” back. And I got it.
I have met a wonderful man. He has all the qualities I was looking for. He too is a widow. I wanted to travel. I am sitting here in Chile typing this. In 10 days I am traveling to Bolivia and Peru. I have no money problems. They just seem to solve themselves. Every time something happens that I have on my list, I just smile to myself. As long as I live “The Secret, I can do anything.
At times I feel guilty that my life is going so well. Most of my friends have not found “The Secret” yet. But I have, and I will always live it. Whatever you want is yours for the believing. I love life, and I have never been happier. The Secret is inside of me. My favorite line is: “If it is in your heart, it is in your hand.”
