The Magic Flipped My Situation.
About four years ago I moved to Germany and I was not adjusting to Erasmus life. I did not leave my room and I wasn’t making friends as one should on Erasmus. I was utterly miserable. I was so depressed and was not leaving my room at all.
My mam bought me The Magic for Christmas because she knew I liked to stay positive. I practiced The Magic every day for two weeks. I decided that if I was going to sit there, I may as well practice. I wrote pages and pages of what I was grateful for. Things began to happen.
My spirits began to lift. I booked a course that, if I passed it, I would be able to work on a beach for the entire summer. I began to leave the apartment and started training for the course. Then I booked a flight home. I would have to pay two extra months’ rent and I would lose my deposit as I was breaking the contract. After accepting that I was leaving I felt like I had wasted money.
The next day, after I booked a flight home, I got a letter saying I was evicted from my apartment. I went to the accommodation center and the man told me to say nothing. I ended up getting to leave Erasmus without having to pay two months’ rent, I got my deposit back, and I also got my second semester fees returned to me. I made it home in time to complete my course. I worked on the beach all that summer and I made more money than I had ever made as a student. Also, I got to be outside all summer.
I am so grateful to Rhonda and The Magic. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
