The Secret Is Real
Hi everyone! I just wanted to share with you all a little story that showed to me that The Secret is without a doubt real. A friend of mine had been talking about The Secret to me about a month ago and because of the way she raved about it, I made a mental note to check it out. Well, about a week later I was in a thrift store and what do you know, The Secret was sitting there in a random box of books for 50 cents! I bought it, and over the next week I would skim through the book, mostly just opening it to random pages and reading little pieces of it. I ended up bringing it back to college with me a week later and I soon started reading these amazing testimonials and getting more excited about the possibility of it all!
Let me back track a little bit. During the summer, a month before my friend even told me about the book I had been skimming Pinterest and saw this quote that really resonated with me. I’m not really a “quote happy” person, but I took a screen shot of it so I could read it everyday. When I moved into my college apartment I printed it out and stuck it in my closet for me to look at everyday.
Fast forward a month to when I am at college and I have been reading The Secret for about a week. I was sitting on a bench at school waiting for class when I decided to download The Secret app. It gives you a piece of advice for every day of the year. I skimmed through a couple, and decided to try something. I would close my eyes and just keep skimming until it felt “right” and the quote I stopped on would be the advice that I needed most at that moment. So I skimmed through, not peeking, and stopped. When I looked down my heart stopped. It was the same quote that I had found on pinterest over a month prior, the same one that was at that moment taped to the inside of my closet. I had no clue that it was even in The Secret book, and the fact that out of 364 other quotes and pieces of advice, THAT was the one that showed up!!! (You don’t have to see the whole staircase to take the first step”)
And that is not all!! I then decided to see which quote/piece of advice was given on the date of my birthday (October 5th), I scrolled to it and when I saw it my face split into a grin and my heart started pounding. Back track two days before, I was sitting on the floor of my room and The Secret was lying next to me, I randomly opened it and the first quote I saw, literally defined everything in my life so far and the internal struggle that I put myself through. I made a mental note to put that quote up next to the staircase one. (“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, either way you are right.”) Well what do you know! That was the same EXACT quote that I was staring at on that bench which was assigned to my birthday!! To me there is no way that both of these are a coincidence.
Now I am applying The Secret to my everyday life and I just feel all around amazing. Now my skin, body, confidence, joy, is changing. I was always a positive person and I love complimenting people, but when people would compliment me, it was like I surrounded myself with a barrier in which I couldn’t feel that love. I know now it’s because I didn’t love myself as much as I should have first. I am so ridiculously happy, and I hope all of you reading this realize the most beautiful, successful, and joyous versions of yourselves and lives!!
