I have always been a firm believer in faith and in making your own destiny. True there are certain events that we mere mortals cannot control, the weather being one of them, but anything else in our lives we pretty much have a say-s0, good, bad or ugly. On Friday, I received my DVD of "The Secret". It was featured on Oprah a few weeks ago, and again in a follow-up show and I was completely riveted to the shows. I knew that if I am going to make any lasting changes in my life, I had to find out what the "Secret" is.
The secret has to do with the "Law of Attraction", or in simple terms, "like attracts like". I am a slow learner, I admit it. I have wasted a lot of my time worrying over stuff that didn't happen, or fearing the worst, or just being too lazy to do anything about changing my life because deep down I didn't want to admit that I was terrified of failing, so why even try? Which is why it has taken me this long to get my writing career off the ground. I kept listening to the toxic people in my life, the naysayers, the critics, the losers, and believing that I would not ever make it as a writer because I would never make it period! I had been told by some people in my past that I would never amount to anything, make a name for myself, that I was just a waste of good oxygen. I was young, and dumb and thought they were right. Now, I know that they are definitely WRONG! I'm going to have a great time proving to them and myself that anything is possible if you ASK, BELIEVE and be ready to RECEIVE. What do I have to lose??
