A few months ago, if you met me you would not recognize me now. I am a completely different person physically, mentally, and spiritually. I was 22 and diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. There wasn’t a day I wasn’t sick and because of my illness I had lost every job I could get and was in debt up to my elbows. Not to mention the depression of gaining so much weight from the medications. Finally a friend came over to visit and they seemed to radiate happiness. I asked, “What’s up with you? You seem happy.”
“Seem happy?” they said, “I am happy!”
“Well what did you do, did you meet someone?” I asked.
“No I made my own happiness.”
I was completely confused. I couldn’t understand how someone could be so happy with no reason. “Just watch this.” they said and handed me a DVD called The Secret”. I remembered seeing the book at the book store and was always reaching for it and putting it back down again. I put the DVD in and was completely mesmerized. I cried the entire time, I couldn’t believe how much I had been bringing myself down, that I was the reason my life was the way it was. It was hard to get through my thick skull and I cried each time I watched it, but I noticed the difference in the emotions behind those tears.
When Monday rolled around I was determined to change my life. I needed to change my life. I decided I wasn’t going to dwell on my illness or my bills. I took to the newspaper figured that a job was the first step to getting my life back on track. A week went by and I looked and looked, sent resumes and filled applications and no one was hiring. But I wasn’t giving up. I visualized someone calling and telling me they would pay me good money for my art. Sure enough I came across and ad on Wednesday for a graphic artist, I looked at it like I had looked at many and told myself no because they would want a bachelor’s degree like everyone else. But something in the back of my head went off and I shrugged and said, What the heck it can’t hurt.
That was a Wednesday. By Friday I got the call for the interview and was working on the next Monday. Then it all started falling into place. I have started to lose weight after months and months of working out with no result. My friends actually want to hang out with me because now I am the life of the party, and somehow money keeps showing up to help me pay my bills. I am so happy and so thankful for The Secret and everything that has happened to me since.
To those who don’t believe, all I can say is, Man you are so wrong. I am now writing my book on the side and am confident that you will be seeing me on the best seller’s list. Be Looking for me!
Thank you to those who gave us The Secret!
Thank you a million times over!
