Wow! That’s all I could think…
In 2005 a very good friend of mine gave me this book called “The Secret.” He told me that I should read it and he tried explaining what the book entailed, but I honestly wasn’t listening. I thought he was being a little silly believing in it, so when he left I put it away thinking one day I may read it. Well, that day came about a month ago.
I was forced to quit my part time evening job, could not find a suitable daycare for my baby to go back to work in the day, and there wasn’t much out there for evening positions. I started panicking, thinking, if I don’t get work and EI doesn’t pull through for me I am going to end up in the poor house. I took prescribed medication to help ease my anxiety and just watched my bank account suffer.
About two weeks after losing my job and worrying like crazy I came across this “Secret” book, so I set out to reading it. Wow, I couldn’t put it down! This book made perfect sense! I have been using it for so many years and it has worked in so many ways that I didn’t realize what I was doing to make all those little things that were good happen to me, and if I had used The Secret to the max, oh my, my situation would be a lot different today.
Long story shorter, I did the check thing – actually two. 🙂 But feeling a little guilty for asking for so much I kind of forgot about them and prayed to god to help me financially, just a little bit to get myself out of my overdraft. I don’t believe in asking for money from him, but I knew that he knew it was badly needed. So I thanked him and let it go. I spent what had to spent, and when I got nervous about how much I was spending I would just pretend and even joke around with my older daughters that I was rich and could afford to. 🙂
Then tonight I am reading one of your amazing stories about a young university student and how her account went from minus to plus within weeks. I had a feeling to check my account (which was -700.00 the day before) and jokingly said to myself, “It would be funny if I had money in my account now,” and laughed it off. When I opened it I was plus $403.00 – not in the minus anymore! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! My EI went through!!! All I could think was, “Wow,this really works! I immediately told my oldest daughter about it and said to her, “It may not be $25,000, but its the best $600.00 I’ve seen in a long time!” She laughed and was happy for me.
I believed, thanked God, and let him take care of the rest. Thank you, thank you, thank you to my best friend for introducing me to the book, Ronda and her team for letting out “The Secret,” and everyone for your stories. Only because of all of you I would feel hopeless right now, but instead know that things well be ok!
