Wake Up Call.
I borrowed The Secret book from the library two days ago and have read it. I stand amazed! Through the years I have unknowingly used some of the methods to gain what I wanted, and let me give you three examples.
1. Years ago when the children were small, I was at home with them. I chose to stay with the kids and not work. Needless to say we had a lack of money as we only had one income. I needed money real bad to buy food so I went to my closet, took and sorted clothing I didn’t use anymore and put them into plastic bag. My husband asked me what I was doing and so I told him a lady would come tomorrow and ask to buy second hand clothes. Then, I would go to the supermarket and buy food.
Result: The next day a lady came to buy clothes, she bought all of the clothes. I went to the supermarket and bought food.
2. I never had a proper cooker or stove so I cleaned the kitchen and made a space for a stove. I told my hubby that’s where the stove is going to stand and he must not use the empty space.
Result: Two days later the neighbour across the street called me. She needed to get rid of her stove as her husband bought her new one. I had a stove.
3. Before we moved down to where we stay now, I asked for the house next to my mother in law to be available, either to purchase or rent. This would ensure our independence and enable us to be close to her should she need us.
Result: The house was put on the market the very next day. It was on the market for a whole year. We never moved into the house because of certain problems and I realised that that door had been shut. After living here a year, I see now that was for the best, and I am happy with the end result.
