I’ve thought about sharing my story here for some time and initially decided against it as I had read all the many stories shared here and decided mine wasn’t quite as special as those….yet. But it finally hit me that yes, my story is also special because it’s mine and it came about just as the same as the other ones by faith, trust and belief…. more importantly by discovering the magic of the Secret.
3 months ago my life changed drastically, or so I thought, my boyfriend of almost 3 years broke up with me. The heartbreak loss and just despair I felt because of this was so consuming I thought, and believed that I was truly dying. What I didnt know is that our breakup would force me to look and examine my life, as I never had before. Before our break up, my brother had talked to me many times about the Secret and how I should get it because it would change my life. Every time he would mention it I would do what any good little sister does when her big brother talks and tune him out. But one night as I was talking to my brother through my tears and pain, he just said, Why dont you just get The Secret DVD, or go online to their site and just give it a try. Cmon what can it hurt, youre already sad enough as it is . worst case scenario itll make you laugh.
I decided to give in and listen to him. That night as I was holed up at home being miserable I logged into thesecret.tv, I saw the preview for the movie and the link for the stories. I started reading some of the stories, and this weird feeling of hope started creeping up on me, I even smiled while reading them. So I decided to go and purchase the DVD. Next day I went to a book store and as I walked in a very friendly employee asked if I needed help, usually I say no but she there was something about her just familiar I said yes. I told her what I was looking for, as I mentioned the Secret her face immediately lit up with a huge smile and she said You are in luck we just got a new shipment in today, weve been out for a month or so. I was like …ok, thats funny – my brother has been telling me to get the movie for about a month. She got me the movie and on I went.
That night I went home and watched it as I watched it was like a light just came on in my head.it was like everything the speakers were talking about and discussing applied to me. Everything, everything. I remember crying but this time with the knowledge that everything that was happening I had brought into my life, I remember the moment I realized that this life that I was living even before the break up was not the life I ever wanted – it was specifically everything I was fighting against, at least in my mind. It was what I always said I would never be. Yet here I was the negative, serious beyond belief, never smiling, sarcastic cold person. I was the person who always thought she was on her own and could only do things herself, always disappointed and let down by everyone else.
Before I went to bed I made the decision, I knew I was going to change it all. I knew I was meant to be better and have great things in life I just needed to find my way.
Next day I bought the book. I went to the beach and read it . that was the beginning of it all. I remember yelling onto the sea Life is good, life is great! All good things come to me it came from my heart, I trusted and believed that statement. It was like my soul just opened up and finally said, “Thats it Im ready for more, for life, for hope and optimism.”
I have noticed so many changes in my life since then. The people I attract, my job, my outlook on life and the interaction I have with others, strangers, coworkers and family members. Ive let go of a lot of negative and toxic things and people in my life knowing that they were not allowing for my growth and realization as an individual. I start every day being thankful and grateful for what I have and I map out my day. I explain how wonderful and special it will be. I ask for little specific things and though sometimes they dont all happen a good 98% of the time they do. At night I give thanks again for the day I had for the wonderful things that took place. Its funny but ever since I started doing this I smile more, I stand up straighter and have more confidence. My heart and soul are lighter, at peace and filled with joy, love, laughter, trust and belief. People have noticed this change on me, coworkers, family members and even my ex. I have been told I glow and how beautiful I look.
I would love to say that my bf and I are back together, and we are not yet But our relationship has changed. When he left he had become someone else, the anger and resentment that lived in him then has slowly eased and he is becoming the man I used to know. We are back to talking again, communicating as we used to before. I know its a matter of time before he is back in our home. I know hes on his way back to me, and that is all that matters, I truly know this and believe it. I can feel his love and know that it is just as true and wonderful as it has always been.
I focus on all the good moments, memories and experiences we have shared, and think of all the new ones that await us. I think about our future and all the wonderful things we will accomplish and the beautiful family we will have.
I understand that I cant control the how and the universe will take care of that, which is a huge accomplishment for me as I have always been a self-confessed control freak, and I am okay with that. Any time I have doubts or start feeling anxious I just tell myself….I am the Master of my thoughts and feel grateful for all I have and continue to receive in my life.
With my bf I just remember that he is on his way back to me and though maybe we may not be living together again…yet….he is is with me and loves me as much as I love him….this never fails to bring me back into my place of peace and appreciation.
I will come back and write to update you on all the wonderful things I have in store, my new job, home and more importantly how my relationship with the man I love has grown stronger than ever.
To those out there who may be considering reading or watching the Secret dont hesitate, just follow your instinct and do it. Believe me it will change your life and the way you think and look at it. Be open minded and you will see immediately a difference in your self.
