Several months ago I announced to my friend JH that I was moving out of the house I'd lived in for 3 years in Dallas. I was moving to a different area of town, with a girl that I had become fast friends with but didn't know super well. JH's response was something that I had already started to feel but hadn't quite put into words: Your life is going to change. Good things are going to come to you.
I had always kinda had that hunch.....you know like something big was about to happen in my life....but I never could put my finger on exactly what that "Something" was.
Not too long after this announcement I found myself buying a new car. This is the first time since I was 15 that Daddy didn't buy a car for me, I did it myself.
When I finally made the big move, I noticed that things in my life had shifted a little bit. I had a new group of friends that enjoyed going the same places and the same activities that I did. I had gotten rid of some awful and negative relationships in my life that were weighing me down. I was actually starting to feel like "me" again.
Now I'm not saying that my first 3 years in Dallas were bad. I actually made several great girlfriends (3 of which I will be spending this weekend with for Brookie's bachelorette party!!!!), fell into a great job that showed me what I really want to do with my life, and grew a lot as an adult.
I am excited about all of this "good" that has been coming to me and I am so thankful for all of the people in my life that contribute to the "good" on a daily basis.
Recently my new roommate suggested that I read The Secret. If you know anything about me, it's that I love a good book! While The Secret isn't exactly an easy to read novel, it has opened my eyes to a few things in a big way. I'm sure you'll hear more about this book later, I'm just on the first few pages. Here's something I read this morning that really stuck with me (also I'm pretty sure JH tells me this on a regular basis....):
"You are the one who calls the law of attraction into action, and you do it through your thoughts."
Basically, when you think positively about the things you want, need, etc you will attract a positive action. If you think negatively about these things, you will attract a negative action.
So here's to some pretty powerful positive thinking for today!
