Starting with the small stuff
About a year ago my mom had seen a TV program about The Secret and decided that she wanted to learn more about it, so she bought the DVD. At first I thought nothing about it, but then I decided to watch it with her. After watching it I just felt such joy and I was really inspired to do something, but just like with everything else in my crazy life I sort of forgot about it.
August 2007 came about and the very first day I was in a car accident. I wasn’t hurt, but the truck I was driving had some pretty good dents and dings. I was pretty scared after that, that is all I could think about, and naturally thoughts become things, thus a month later I was in another vehicle accident. This time I did get some bumps and bruises. This was only the tip of the iceberg, because prior to my second crash my grandma died almost suddenly. After my second accident my mom’s cousin died and I was unable to attend the funeral, and just a couple days after that my friend’s mother died. Things were really bad and they just continued getting worse because my mind was just focusing on the bad stuff.
I had just begun my first year of college and I was majoring in something I had wanted to do practically my whole life, then I discovered the professor was just a very negative person. I could not stand being around this negativity any longer, and I ended up dropping all of my classes except for two general classes and was a part time student. So now I didn’t have a clue as to what I was going to do. I was so miserable and starting to become very depressed. I would just come home at night and cry myself to sleep.
In December my grandpa died on the 24th – I couldn’t take much more of this. I had practically hit rock bottom. I had no job, so my finances were just dwindling and I was still unsure of what career path I should take.
But when you are at the very bottom all you can do is go up, so I began to be grateful of what I did have, and started thinking happier thoughts, and you know what? The Secret started giving me more things to be grateful and happy for.
One night I was flipping through a magazine and something just popped out at me. It was an article about a school that teaches you how to write children’s books, and that had been an interest of mine that I never pursued. I pictured myself writing books and feeling how I would feel when my stories were published. Long story short I’ve been accepted, and never felt better.
Just today the Secret proved yet again that it really does work. It was a pretty hot today and a McFluury sounded really good, but I kept my thoughts to myself all day. I just kept picturing a McFluury and the taste was almost real in my mouth, and I just kept feeling how nice it was to have something cold and refreshing. We were headed back home and all of a sudden my mom pulled up to McDonald’s and before I knew it I had a McFlurry in my hand.
The Secret truly is amazing. Now I am using what I know and on to bigger, better, things. 🙂 I hope my story inspires anybody in doubt to just take the first step!!!
