The Magical Acceptance.
I would like to start off by saying thank you to Rhonda Byrne for her guidance over the past two years through her books and through The Secret movie. Your guidance is giving me the life of my dreams.
At the beginning of my senior year of college, I made a risky move to switch my grad school plans from Physical Therapy to Child Life. In my heart, I knew I was being drawn to what I really wanted, the field of Child Life, despite the three years of completed course work related to Physical Therapy and the countless hours I had spent on my application. Way deep in the bottom of my heart, I knew it is not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Therefore, I withdrew my Physical Therapy applications and applied to one school for their Child Life program. Schools that have a Masters in Child Life are fairly rare but I found one school that just seemed right to me so I decided I would attend that school, no matter what.
I told everyone I would be attending my dream school in the fall, and I started to talk to friends about living arrangements. The email finally came from the university’s graduate admissions office and it came earlier than expected. It said that I had been accepted once I sent in an official transcript!
I was so excited that I called family and friends, posted on Facebook, and lastly, crossed it off my wish list as completed and I thanked the Universe repeatedly. I was on cloud nine.
This was all until four days later when I received another email from the actual program I had applied to, declining my acceptance! I was so confused and upset because I had been told I was accepted only four days prior. I was devastated but I decided to make a plan as to how I could get in the following year.
In the meantime, I decided to follow up and find out why I had gotten such conflicting information. After about two weeks of phone tag and returned emails, it was discovered that there was a computer mix up and that I should never have received the first email. However, due to the conflicting information they had given me, they decided to review my file and take a faculty vote.
Afterward, they had voted and decided that they would offer me a spot after all! It was like I had a spot all along that the Universe had constructed for me. I knew I was going to go to school there, I just didn’t know how and the Universe worked it all out for me by a simple computer mixup! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am now preparing to begin graduate school at my dream university and in my dream program. I cannot believe how the Universe unfolded all this for me, but I can’t be anything less than grateful! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
