Years Of Struggle Lead To Happiness!
I first read Secret in 2008. My sister had given me her copy and I instantly devoured the book. I felt such an understanding and changed my life for the better. Good things were happening in my life, money came, my relationship improved, I got my desired car(A Volvo). All was well. Somewhere along my path, I took a wrong turn.
Life started crumbling. My relationship was being challenged, my familys’ business closed due to my fathers 12th heart attack, I had an addiction problem that consumed my entire retirement account as well as my savings account. I reread the book partially and watched the movie but couldn’t seem to apply it for any length of time. Right after our business closed, I got help and got clean. I felt lost though, I had worked there for 19yrs. I had no money and stayed home because I have 2 children(9 and 5) My husband was financially stable enough that we got by. But I was sad, very sad. I was bored, depressed and then my health was suffering. I have a thyroid problem and gained weight. Fast forward about 15 months and here I am.
Last month as I was cleaning my home, I came across The Secret movie. I watched it again and it clicked, again. I brought out my book copy to just look at. Last week I was playing around on my computer, The Secret popped up on my side screen-out of nowhere. I clicked on it and it brought me to here. I read the stories obsessively and passionately and knew I could be successful too! I deserve it just as much as everyone else here.
I started writing in 2 separate gratitude journals, one for my husband and one for myself. I made my vision board and admire it often. I placed sticky notes to self all over my room with positive thoughts and quotes. I even had my daughter make a vision board and told my son that he was going to get the Wii unit he wanted so badly!” I just know it,” I told him. All week I have been reading on this website. I checked out Youtube and watched the Oprah episode, as well as various other successes due to The Secret. So, I decided to set my goals on money, the lottery in particular. I went to the store and purchased 2 Powerball tickets, 1 quick pick and 1 with my choice #’s. Well, I didn’t win. I almost wanted to be upset, but why? I’m not done I told myself this morning. I woke up happy, grateful for everything I do have. A wonderful husband, 2 awesome kids, a nice home, good health, etc. I told myself something else is coming to me. I am positive and grateful, I deserve good things!
So, 2 hrs. ago, I got a call from our accountant. Our taxes are done and she needs me to go sign the forms. She asks me if I want to know what we are getting back. Of course I do! My husband has been worried it wouldn’t be much since I’m not working but I have been waiting for this news! I kept telling him to Be Positive! We were hoping we’d get about $2000 at best. You can imagine my excitement when she told me that we were actually getting $9000 plus $2200 from State! We have not had that much back in 5 years combined. This is incredible news. I didn’t win the lottery(yet) but this is amazing! Thank you Secret and Rhonda for my success so far, it’s just the beginning. I just told my 5yr old son that he gets his Wii when he gets home from school today!:)
