You CAN Do Anything.
I have been on here reading these stories for years and I keep thinking, “I will share my story when this happens,” or ” I will write when I get this.” But tonight I got on here and realized that I am blessed with an amazing life. Why not share now? So here it goes:
A few years back my mother introduced me to The Secret. Of course being a naive teenager I didn’t believe my mother, and at that time in my life I couldn’t possibly admit to my self that my own negativity had caused my problems. At that time in my life I was extremely depressed, I had an eating disorder, lots of family problems, relationship problems, and endless stress. I won’t ruin your mojo (that is what I call positivity) by going into too many details but for being a young teen my life was not going so good.
Eventually I gave in. Why not try it? So, me and The Secret went off and on, but at the time I was far too negative and immature. I never gave it a real chance, but don’t give up! Once I really tried, The Secret changed my life. I believed it in my heart. It was summer and I told my self, “this year you will be popular,” and this year you will get dates,” and the biggest one of all I told my self, “you are worth it!”
Finally I let myself believe. I believed it in my heart and my soul. That year, which is now a few years back, I went to school and the girls I dreamed might notice me instantly befriended me. 5 times as many guys than the year before asked me out. In fact, I grew more popular than those girls and created my own group of friends which wasn’t just made out of popular girls it was made out of friends. The guy I dreamed of speaking to asked me out! I had imagined and he did. He is a few years older than me and before that never spoke to me. I actually turned him down. Why not wait for someone who will actually get to know me? I got so much attention from guys my friends and my mother even noticed. It had been just what I dreamed of the year before.
Soon I grew out of it and using the awesome power of The Secret watched my life change before my eyes. I found my true passion. I found acting. It is one of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me. I began taking classes and fell in love. I am so grateful every day because I feel I have finally found my place in life. I can easily say that it is something I want to do for the rest of my life.
Of course I am using the secret to pursue these dreams but I will get back to that later. Remember how I was saying I was depressed and anorexic. For a long time I knew I had a problem but never knew what to do about it. So, I asked, believed, and finally my family noticed. I know most people would be mortified but they put me in counseling for that and all the things that happened in my child hood. I got the support I dreamed of and with that and The Secret I healed. This meant so much to me and I am grateful for this every single day.
Anyway back to the acting, sorry this story might seem scattered but a lot was happening simultaneously, Because of The Secret I was able to take my first step. I got my head shots for free! In case you don’t know, this is a huge deal. Quality head shots can cost hundreds of dollars. I imagined my self posing and getting my makeup done up for head shots but at the time it was just a fantasy in my head, I never once though of it actually happening. Then, we were planning a trip to see my uncle in Cali and he says, ” remember how you thought I forgot your birthday? Well I did, but I am making up for it! You want to be an actor right? Well the first step to becoming an actor is getting head shots. I have a close friend who is a photographer and gives me a huge discount. Happy birthday! You know I give the best presents.” It turns out he set up a huge 3 day photo shoot. I now have my comp card and my head shots, and all this was subconsciously acquired! It just goes to show you How powerful your mind is.
I have also used The Secret to improve my body by being 100 percent grateful for it and I have to say the results are extraordinary. My measurements went from 32, 26, 34 to 35, 24, 36! I also grew 3 inches after I thought I was done growing! If that isn’t enough proof to try it right there, I don’t know what is.
Currently my life is going amazing. I am attending the acting classes of my dreams. I no longer even have to go to the therapist which is incredible. I have plenty of money to do anything I want to do. My family is in the middle of moving into this gorgeous house and I am so happy! I am grateful for everything that happens in my life. I know that I can have, do, or become anything! My whole life has improved so much. This is just the beginning. I didn’t even get to write about so many other small things that add up to this life I have been blessed with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart thank the universe and the people in it!
