I started reading The Secret less than a year ago. Someone that has now a big place in my life introduced me to it. My life wasn’t bad before The Secret but I was really stressed about money, relationships and work. I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I didn’t feel happy that often but I wanted to. I was a single mom, had a job in which I wasn’t valued and my life felt like a constant fight. My self-confidence was very low. Always questioning myself, am I doing this right? Is this the right decision? Am I good enough?.
I started reading the book with no expectations. It was like trying something new. I told myself: “What do you have to lose anyway, can’t hurt can it?” It took me a bit to finish the book as I didn’t want to rush it. I wanted to do things right. I remember that bit where it says how you need to change your negative thoughts into positives. Forcing your mind to think positive instead of focusing on what is wrong. You don’t realize how your mind constantly picks up on negative things, it’s crazy! So I tried, it was hard but it taught me how to let go of negative things that I would get stuck on for hours before. Little things like someone bumping into you in the street or some work issues or people that constantly disappoint you or do you wrong. It taught me that I have great things in my life. The more I thought about the great things in my life the more they kept coming to me. Like overflowing me with nice things. Little things that make your day better. Every time I was starting to get angry or annoyed about something I would say to myself, “Why does it matter? Why am I letting this get in the way of my happiness? I am just going to get over it.”. And I did. What an amazing feeling
There is something that is now an everyday ritual: being grateful for my life at all times. Every morning I open my eyes and I am grateful and every night I close my eyes and I am grateful. Let me tell you how my life changed in a few months:
I was a single mom, struggling a bit. I went to work every day because I needed to. I hate that word now, “need”. As soon as I started doing what The Secret told me to, everything changed. My life started to fall into place. I am with a great man now that takes care of me and my daughter. We don’t argue. We are partners. My relationship is the perfect relationship for me. My love tank is filled. He is my best friend, I can talk to him about anything and everything. He gets it, you know? We are in it together. I have never had that before. We always say that the Universe is with us. I make myself happy and he makes it better.
I got a new job, an amazing one. I stopped listening to people that always said I wouldn’t be able to make it and that some dreams would always stay dreams. I say no, my dreams are my reality.
The Secret helped me realize how everything is abundance and I can have it too! My favorite things to tell myself are: I am rich, I can afford it. I am thankful for my life. I fully live the present and my future looks amazing because of that.
I am now stress-free and richer than I have ever been. I ask for it and I get it. I ask for the right tube to come when I am waiting at a platform and it does. Everything is falling to place. I am confident the future will be great and I can’t wait to continue this life The Secret has helped me create.
