Think like a child
As a child I thought the world was a magnificent place, full of wonder and opportunity. I used to dream every night about meeting my prince and becoming a successful singer. As the years went by and I moved from childhood into adulthood, well, I started to lose myself. My dreams started to fade and I no longer felt that magnificent excitement about life as I did previously as a child. After losing 3 important people in my life (2 family members and a dear friend), I began to think that life was not on my side and I questioned how I would ever live again with the heartache. Thankfully I found many self-help books and I discovered my spiritual side. From there I began to find myself and realise that life could be exciting again. I realised that all I needed to do was believe in life instead of seeing life as the enemy.
I discovered that I could sing and write poetry and that I had so much to say but was never given an opportunity as a child to be vocal and speak my mind. I had to internalize every last thought as a child. Little did I know that this lack of expression would later fuel my passion for poetry & song. For many years I was voice-less and then through poetry I found my voice, through music I found my joy, hence why now I yearn to sing to the world and share my joy of expression.
The moral of this story is that Life should be looked at like how a child looks at life. When I think of my dreams as a kid, I can immediately feel that desire in my gut to live life and see the world in all its glory. I always knew the truth of the world and that I was connected to everything, but I just didn’t want to say it out loud for fear that people would mock me. When The Secret was presented to me it was like all my visions as a child had been given back to me and I could see clearly again.
I just want to thank The Secret for giving me my joy back and for letting me see the light once again.
