Writing My Own Story, Literally
I watched the DVD of The Secret tonight, and realized that I’ve been following the tenets of the Secret this past year and didn’t realize it. Actually, it wasn’t until the past few months that I’ve realized how much abundance I’ve received in my life.
I left behind a very stressful, negative job in non-profit literally a year ago (it was this past week a year ago). Things were rough and I had to move back home with family due to finances (and returned to my home town), but it was the best thing that happened to me. I also started to follow my dream of freelance writing and consulting, and doors have opened up for me. I write about yoga for a health website (yoga is one of my greatest passions), and through editors and contacts, I’ve developed more writing leads. I also joined a networking group through a woman I met via my sister (who happens to know a volunteer I worked with at my old job). I made a great connection for a potential consulting job as a result of this networking group.
As a freelancer I’ve been stressed about money, but I’ve felt deep down that things are going to be fine, and I know money will be coming in for me (soon!). I was working PT and that job ended for the summer and I was trying to figure out how I was going to make money, and I just hit the pavement running for contacts and leads, and things started flowing for me. I’ve been in awe and so happy (and incredibly grateful)!
I’ve been telling my friends and family that it feels like the Universe is coming into place for me (this was before I had even watched The Secret and understood what has been happening to me).
For me, I left behind the negativity and was staying in a situation that was only attracting negativity and bad vibes. When I let go of that negativity, it’s like I had a new lease on life, and my writing has been taking off – something I’ve wanted to do for years. After I watched The Secret, my first thought was: I’m going to write my book and I know it can happen now. I am finally seeing my future and I feel like all the negativity that has dragged down my life for so many years (especially with my chaotic, unhappy jobs with horrible bosses) has left me, and I am concentrating on my joy and happiness. I feel like anything is possible at 36 years old, and just last year I was hopeless, depressed, and was close to having a nervous breakdown because of my job.
I had no idea I was living the Secret until I watched it tonight, and now I’m feeling even more positive and hopeful. I know that there is a bright future out there for me with my writing and I know I’m destined to tell my story to others – literally and figuratively.
The Secret ties into the tenets of yoga, and I have been a student of yoga for the past 10 years. It all makes sense – what we put out into the Universe is what we will get back, and what energy and vibe we send to others is exactly what we’ll get back too. If we send love, peace, and harmony to the Universe, our energy will resonate and vibrate in a positive way.
Namaste and love, light, and peace to all of you for sharing your beautiful stories and experiences. It’s inspirational and it gives me hope.
