I remember awhile back I heard of ‘The Secret,’ it was on Oprah and people just loved it (similar to the whole current Twilight phenomenon which I just don’t get…I’m working on it though). It took me awhile to look it up, because for awhile I somehow associated it with Scientology and just didn’t think it was my thing.
Well, probably about a year and a half ago I finally looked it up (a video on YouTube if I remember correctly) and let me just say. Changed my life.
It’s hard to explain, but the way I think about it is that every thought you have has either a positive/neutral/negative vibe to it. The more positive thoughts and actions you have in your life and mind- the more positive things happen to you. This is seriously the dumbed-down version, and I just want ya’ll to watch the video if you have any spare time. I start every morning by repeating to myself as I get ready, “It’s going to be a great day…” over and over and over. And let me tell you- it helps. You wouldn’t believe how much those positive thoughts help make everyday so much better.
My roomie and I were having a seriously HARD time a few months ago, and at about 3 in the morning one night we just got into it- probably the worst fight/argument I’ve ever had with a friend. She was just really having a hard time (we had both just moved to a whole new city and had no friends and she didn’t even have a job yet) and I told her she just had to read the book and watch the videos. I will tell you she is a totally different person today. Much more positive- and much more positive things have been occurring in her life.
Ok now I’ll stop being so crazy. BUT REALLY. Read it :)
