One night this past week, as I sat on my bed, notebook in hand, I began thinking how thankful I was to own my own business, be my own boss, have a wonderful relationship, and have a home to call my own.
When I suddenly realized, I am living my dreams. My dreams of 15 years ago!
Fifteen years ago, I was at an all time low.
I had moved out of my home of 20 years, in a hurry, taking only whatever would fit into my car. I spent six weeks basically living in my car, some nights sleeping over at family and friend's houses or staying at motels whenever I had any extra cash. A drunk driver without insurance had crashed through the front of my business, and sales were at an all time low. Trying to extricate myself from a miserable, abusive marriage, needless to say, I was very depressed.
One night when I was seriously contemplating checking out of this game called life, I was standing idly in a bookstore, when a book fell off of a shelf and landed on my foot. I picked it up, noticed the title, "You Can Heal Your Life", and said to no one in particular, "yeah right", and placed it back on the shelf.
As I stood there, I suddenly began to wonder, just how had that book had fallen off the shelf? Feeling curious, I reached up and pulled it out to take another look.
Opening it up to a random page, or so I thought, I will always remember what I read in that moment.
"Your thoughts and beliefs of the past have created this moment, and all of the moments up to this moment. What you are now choosing to believe and think and say will create the next moment and the next day and the next month and the next year...You are the power in your world! You get to have whatever you choose to think! This moment begins the new process. Each moment is a new beginning, and this moment is a new beginning for you right here and right now!"
You Can Heal Your Life - by Louise Hay
And it was. I bought that book and began to heal my life. I began to change my thoughts and beliefs and set new goals. Contrast does bring Clarity!
- I wanted a home of my own.
- I wanted to be a better supportive, loving mother
- I wanted a healthy loving relationship with a wonderful man.
- I wanted a successful, prosperous business.
I did not know anything about the Law of Attraction, nor had I learned the processes and tools for deliberate creation, and it didn't happen overnight.
I wish I had known then, what I know now.
But it DID happen. Some things quickly, some more slowly.
Of course, whenever we achieve a goal, there is always a new goal. We are ever expanding. As Abraham says, "We never get it done".
As I sat there on my bed and realized that I am now living the life of my dreams, of fifteen years ago, it gave me chills because I know that the dreams I hold for my future, are also in the process of coming true. What a feeling!
Take a look at your life. What dreams have come true for you?
What dreams do you want to come true?
As Louise Hay said, "You are the power in your world! You get to have whatever you choose to think!"
