I just purchased The Secret book from the local library book sale and although I just started reading it I can already feel its impact. This weekend I was out to dinner with a friend and we were talking about hitting the lottery and what we would do. I made a comment to the effect that I would not continue working and would use the time to become a better mother. That became my overriding thought throughout the weekend, I want to be a better mother. I noticed that I have had more patience with him the last few days despite him having a major meltdown in a store. It didn’t dawn on me until tonight when I started reading The Secret what was going on.
I have spent the last seven years thinking that I am not as good a parent as my own mother (who passed when I was 7, which is exactly the age of my son). I was setting myself up for failure from the moment he was born, but now that I have changed my way of thinking about it I see it all so much clearer. I know that I still have a long way to go on this journey but I know that your book will make it so much easier and I cannot express the joy in my heart right now.
I actually can’t wait to go to work tomorrow and share some of the information from this book and encourage my coworkers to read the same. Our work has become the perfect analogy for misery loves company and I can only imagine the change if just a few of my coworkers changed their train of thought as well.
