The Sweetest Thing
I’d like to thank Rhonda for sharing The Secret to the whole world. In fact I’ve been always applying this without realizing it.
I came from a broken family. My Mom left us when I was 8. I was pressured since I’m the eldest child. I took my mom’s responsibilities at home. My Dad became an alcoholic since my Mom left, it seemed like the whole world was on my shoulders. I became a very shy child because of the fact that I’ve been hearing negative things about my Mom. Some people say she married again, some people say maybe she was dead since we don’t have any communication.
Eleven years passed and I was still carrying every pain but despite it all I am a dreamer. I was excellent at school but having low self esteem. Believe me, I was an ugly duckling (having pimples) and the more I hated it, the more it appeared. I lost my friends because of my insecurities with myself, I caught my Dad having an affair, he lost his job and it made me stop going to school as we can no longer afford it.
I’ve been through ups and downs like all of you but I have dreams and no way I’m gonna give them up. Call me ambitious, yes you are right, I will never give up chasing my dreams. I have always dreamed of working overseas as what most of my countrymen dreamed of, have a good career, have a happy family of my own, have my Mom back, have a very loving boyfriend who is bald, tall, handsome, have a very good job, someone who is cool, has sense of humor and who will love me more than anything else. I also dreamed of becoming a model, to be very beautiful and attractive, to have the perfect body. In short to become a beautiful swan. I am always dreaming that it came to a point that I felt they are true. I was thankful for everything I had no matter how small they are and I was happy.
Things began to change. I became a very beautiful swan. I got a job offer in Qatar where I’m currently working now as a real estate coordinator and is paid well. I found my Mom on Facebook and we have her back now, though she didn’t reconcile with Dad. Just when I lost hope in having someone who will treat me right and love me most after having failed relationships, I met this tall bald guy at a friend’s party. Oh may the angels forgive me, but when I laid my eyes on him, bang! I knew he’s the one.
The second time we met, he drove me home to save me from our common friend who was totally drunk at a party. Well, when I was in his car I asked him if he had U2 songs (I love U2 and had been asking anyone whenever I’m in their cars if they have them), and, hey! He had U2 songs! The first man I met here who had their songs in his car! He played the song: “The Sweetest Thing” which made the night romantic. We clicked right there and knew that we have a lot of things in common. Things went smoothly. We became friends who are texting each other. Many women are dying to be his girlfriend. I even lost hope once for having him but I knew it within me that HE IS WHAT I WANT and guess what? He invited me over for drinks one night and we talked about almost everything. Since then we’ve been going out together until it blossomed to love. He’s tall, bald, handsome, cool, has a good job, loving, has a sense of humor, he has everything. He’s like an amalgam of everything I want in a guy.
We’re perfectly happy now and he’s loving me more than any woman he has dated. He made me feel like the sexiest woman alive (which I believe is who I am now), he stares at me like I’m the most beautiful woman he has ever seen (which I believe is who I am now). Yes, just as how I believed it to be true. I became a sexy gal, an attractive woman, ugly duckling no more. I’ve been receiving offers now for photoshoots in a magazine. It’s surprising how people stare at us whenever we are together. He’s an Aussie and I’m Asian and we are perfect for each other. It feels like people are wishing to be us. We are planning to marry next year.
I attracted all these by thinking about what I want, by being happy with myself, by being grateful for everything I have in my life, by living NOW, by being worry-free and by believing that I can, have, and be anyting I want.
