TRUE LOVE OUT OF THE BLUE!
After watching The Secret movie twice and reading the book, I started applying the concepts to my everyday routine, writing down what I wanted and being grateful. I was doing all the right things. There was one thing, though, that I wasn’t doing right, and the Universe showed me what.
I was living in Athens when I met the perfect guy for me. I thought he was the one. We had been together for four months when slowly, day by day, he started disappearing on me. In the beginning, I didn’t ask him about it because I didn’t want to be pushy. Later, if a week went by without my hearing from him, I’d ask, and his answer would be, “Don’t worry; it’s nothing.” Of course I would have tons of bad thoughts, but I never got any answers. And then he disappeared completely. No answering my calls, my texts, nothing. I would see his car around, so I knew he was okay, and other people had been seeing him here and there (there was no third person involved). I was mad. I was angry. I was ready to pick up my pieces and move back to the States.
I kept reading The Secret, trying to understand. And I did finally understand. I was doing everything the book was saying to do. That was my mistake. I was doing – not feeling. I did it all as a checklist, like a perfect little girl. Wrong. You’re supposed When my eyes were finally opened to that fact, I raised the bar. I decided that if any guy wanted to be in my life, he would have to exceed my standards. Period. I would never settle for anyone or anything less.
I was teaching dance at a local school. My colleagues and I often sat out on the steps to chat between lessons, and sometimes students would join us. That annoyed me because they were interrupting our conversation. So when one of them came up and said, “I’m going for some lemonade, would you like some?” I was thinking but didn’t say, “No, we want you to leave.”
When the student came back, he sat down next to me and started talking about trips he had taken. I didn’t contribute to the conversation, but what he was saying was intriguing.
To make a long story short, on Friday (two days later), I was at a discotheque on the other side of Athens, and coincidentally, he was too (God planned it). So we danced together and talked a lot. He asked me out, I said yes. Saturday was our first date. Sunday we left for a three-day camping trip together. Today we’ve been together for six years, happily married for three, with a two-year-old daughter. That’s The Secret.
