The Wonder Year 2015.
Before I start writing my story, my heartfelt gratitude goes out for Rhonda and her team for the most wonderful job that you guys are doing. Thank you so so much for everything.
My story begins back in early 2012 when I had an unexpected break up with my boyfriend. We were together for more than 6 years and suddenly things started to get ugly between us and it was him who took the first step to part ways. I was focusing on my higher studies in Finance at that time and had a crucial exam lined up in a few months. So I tried hard to get things back on track and make our relationship work but I was devastated when all my attempts failed. I started spending days in complete isolation. I was detached from all sort of happiness, was trying to concentrate in my studies but couldn’t. My parents understood my condition so they tried to make me happy bringing my friends home. Even that didn’t help. Slowly I began losing interest in living. Depression took over me and I started binge eating. I looked flabby. My skin lost it’s glow and I felt miserable from within. I didn’t want to live but whenever I wanted to end my life I had the image of my parents in front of my eyes. They are more than God to me. I spent my nights crying uncontrollably. I was always a meritorious student and I started to study harder and forget my current situation because my father spent a lot of money for that course I was studying. But unfortunately I didn’t pass in that exam and I felt more miserable. At that time I was giving tuition to support myself but I couldn’t continue that either. I was clueless about my life and my career.
Then I came across this book called The Magic on the internet while searching for ways to come out of depression. I immediately ordered the book and read it thoroughly. I started practicing gratitude on a regular basis and manifested many little things. Then I started chatting with a guy on phone who used to be my social network friend. We talked previously so many times but I never felt inclined as I loved my boyfriend so much. After talking to him for a few months I realized we had so many things in common and I started liking him. Once I thought that I would not be able to trust a guy anymore but he made me believe in love and also in myself. Whenever I was with him I felt wonderful. He made me laugh and never questioned about my past. Months passed and I started to enjoy his company so much that I got slowly healed from within. His only motive was to make me happy and he would do anything for that.
Then one evening he proposed in a magical way and I stood speechless because that was the way I imagined my soulmate to propose me. I couldn’t say a word but was shaking with joy and tears of happiness rolled down my cheeks.
I also got a job as a financial analyst in a company that was not hiring freshers. What was more interesting, my office was near to my home as I wanted it to be, so I always had time to study after coming back home.
From 2013 to 2015 I worked in that company but I wanted a government job. I started preparing and appeared in many government job exams but cracked the exam in 2015 in the state electricity distribution company with my desired pay package. Also, I got married in February this year to my love and got my dream job in June 2015, clearing all the levels. We went to Thailand for our honeymoon which was in my vacation list, followed by many other short weekend trips to lovely places.
Life has become magical now and I can easily say that every person has the capability to turn any adverse life situation in his favor with a change in thought process.
Thank you everyone here for inspiring me and I am grateful to the year 2015. I am sure I am going to have an even more magical 2016 manifesting more things from my wishlist by rereading The Secret, The Magic and Hero.
