My brother told me about The Secret a few months ago. I bought the book a month ago for myself, and for a friend who was having some life difficulties. I read the book in 1 day.
My brother had planned on moving to Vail for the past year, and we were making plans to find him a job and get an apartment for us both. The second apartment I saw, I fell in love with, and wanted it more than anything. There was a family who looked at the apartment first and also wanted it. I went home that night and wrote over and over the address of the apartment, and started figuring in my head where all the furniture would go. I also imagined my brother and I sitting out front and looking at the mountains across the street. Well, the family decided to take the apartment, and I was very disappointed. I looked at a couple of other places, but they didn’t compare. I decided to stop looking and to wait until my brother came in town to look for a place.
Two days ago I got a call from the woman renting the place, and she said things fell through with the family. I told her I hadn’t found a place yet, and she said she knew she should have gone with her gut feeling. We met yesterday and I looked the place over again, and fell even more in love with it. I’m going to meet her in half an hour to sign the lease, and get the keys to my dream apartment. Even when I wasn’t going to get the apartment, I would still day dream about living in it, and now in a week I will be.
