Had The World But Lost Everything
I’m a 42 year old woman who recently became a single mom. My husband of 23 years decided that I wasn’t enough and found a new love. He stopped coming home at the end of April 2015. My 5 year old daughter and I lived alone until July 3, 2015. We left the state after a temporary court order allowed me to leave without his knowledge. I was a doctor since 2000. The ex was my office manager who did all the bookkeeping and finances. I had a private practice and sold it in 2014 so I could be a stay-at-home-mom and so he could pursue his entrepreneurial dreams.
I found out that he had a secret life with another woman in a different state for over a year, 4 days after Mother’s Day 2015. Our baby girl was so wanted and we had her through IVF in 2010. I told him that I was willing to forgive him if he would let the other woman go and I would help build our life back up again. His answer was “What part of I don’t love you do you not get?”
I lived off of whatever savings I had. Since I went to live with a family member in a state that I don’t have a professional license in, I couldn’t practice. I started a part time job not in my field. It paid me close to minimum wage. In the state I’m currently living in, they want certification for almost every position that I am fully qualified for. After working at my part time job for 6 weeks, I became severely depressed. I thought, “I worked so hard for my life just to end up here at this part time job?” I lost my little family, my husband left me, I gave up a private practice to support his dreams, I lost my home, I haven’t worked in a year, was left with very little money, don’t have the car title in my name and he refused to give it to me. I had not received anything from him for child support since the temp order filed July 2015. I found out in October 2015 that he had not filed my business taxes since 2011 and our joint taxes since 2013. I thought that if it were not for my little girl who needed me, I would have no reason to stay on this earth any longer. After trying to get a grip on my chaotic life, I gave it all to God and started listening to The Secret.
I would listen to The Secret every morning. I took control of my negative thoughts even though I had no clue what tomorrow would bring. I concentrated on my blessings such as my little girl’s life, my life, we were not homeless and on the streets, I have a job that covers my little expenses, my family supports me financially and emotionally.
Well, manifestations started 2 weeks later, little by little. All my situations had looked hopeless to me. I met a friend in late July who has a family member in the same field that I am in. I called her but at that time, she didn’t have anything. Well, in late October, 2 weeks after I consciously decided to change my thoughts for the better, I was offered a job for 3x the amount I was willing to move for. Before that I had applied to 3 professional jobs and no one called me. I never even interviewed with this new job. I simply went out to that state to meet them in November. I waited to see if I would get a job contract.
I got my job contract 2 weeks ago! In December, I got my car title. In January, child support finally decided to go after him and sent me a letter of how much he owes. Then a week later, my lawyer told me that the IRS issue could be fixed with a CPA he found.
I truly believe that if we try to focus on the positive, we are sending out positive vibrations that are picked up by other positive energy who then send it back our way.
Thank you to The Secret, and thank you God for showing me how to focus. By losing everything, I have begun to gain a little knowledge of the whole universe! It sounds truly like a gimmick, but my experience shows that it is so real.
