The Marrying Type
In grade 10, on a warm spring day, I sat in a math class staring out the window and day dreaming. I often did that as I didn’t enjoy the subject. On this particular day, I started writing 2 lists: “Dream guy to date” and “Dream guy to marry”.
In the date column I had written such things as blonde hair, blue eyes, good tan, etc. In the marry column I had listed a much different person. This column listed dark hair, puppy brown eyes, olive complexion, loves to travel, enjoys his job, makes ok money, wants children, likes exotic food and places, adventurous. Basically, a person completely opposite of how I was raised and of the people who surrounded me. I filed the lists away in my book and promptly forgot about them. Just some high school wishing.
Well, I grew up and went to college. I dated a number of men of all shapes and sizes. I enjoyed myself. Then I met Carl. The night I met him, my friend told me I would marry this man. I laughed and proceeded to date him, but nothing serious as I was leaving on a year long trip for Australia. Long story short, I returned from Australia after 2 months to move in with Carl, and 5 years later we were married.
About 6 years into our marriage I uncovered my lists. I was stunned. Carl is the exact match in my “marrying” list. Right down to the skin tone and love of travel (he works for a major national airline).
Now that I have discovered the Secret, I realize my “high school wishing” was actually me letting the Universe know what I wanted in a perfect mate, and it provided him when I was most ready to receive him.
As I discover and learn more about the Secret, I look back over my life and I just know that certain events that have happened, I made happen. The good and the bad. I recall the feelings I had at the time and understand I made them come to pass: the problems at work, the winning of awards.
Now I am going to teach my children the Secret. My son especially as he views himself very negatively for a 9 year old.
I hope by spreading the message we can help this hurting world forever.
