The Reality I Created
I began studying for my diploma in community services in 2010 after recieving help from a certain agency in my local area who work with women and children. I already knew that I would love to do work like this but after the help I recieved I knew this was exactly what I wanted to do. I quit halfway through my first year due to external pressures but took it up again at the beginning of this year.
At the end of each year of the course, students are required to undertake placement in local agencies and I knew at the very beginning that I wanted to do mine at this particular agency.
During discussions about placement I expressed my desire to do my placement at this agency and was assured that it wasn’t likely for a first year to do placement there and it was best if I held onto my goal for my second year placement. I still believed though that this was a possibility for me.
I was given a placement in October that wasn’t the one I wanted but I didnt allow myself to be negative about it. It turned out that the placement was unsuitable for me as the travelling distance was to great so I held onto my desire for the other agency. I spoke to my teachers who told me that there was no placement available there but they were still working on finding me one.
During this period I discovered both the book and the DVD of The Secret in virtually the same week. I had never heard of it before but a friend gave me the DVD and a week later I found the book in a second hand shop.
I maintained my focus on this placement for another 5 weeks or so and 3 days ago I received the phone call saying that by chance they had another placement become available and it happened to be at THAT agency. This was unexpected by the teachers as only 2 months ago there was no placement available at this particular agency and it is one that is meant for a second year student who possesses more knowledge of the sector.
Needless to say I was absolutely over the moon with happiness but not surprised that I got this placement as I have put so much energy and positive emotion into this that it was bound to manifest under the LOA.
As they say – every delay is not a denial, it is just the Universe allowing everything necessary to fall into place.
