So of course as I’m getting ready to write this blog post about positivity and manifesting great things, I end up going outside to get something from my car and …. I GET LOCKED OUT OF MY HOUSE!
I don’t know what I did to The Universe but IT. IS. PISSED.
So here’s the thing; 2018 hates me. 2018 has been painful, stressful, frustrating, defeating, annoying and somehow a wonderful life lesson. Yes, I know that we are only 4 months into the year but it has felt like an eternity and I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Forget about the four months of the year, in April alone I’ve ended up homeless and stressed beyond belief. Yes, I said homeless.
The thing about life knocking you on your ass is that it forces you to think on your feet. A year ago being homeless (okay, semi-homeless because my parents are wonderful and my friends are caring) would have absolutely broken me. However, now that it’s happened I find myself truly believing that things happen for a reason and now I am living in a place that I love, with a roommate who seems kind of wonderful and I am slowly getting back on my feet. YAY ME.
My blog isn’t sponsored by The Secret but I need you guys to understand just how much manifesting your future actually works. Allow me to sound a bit crazy for a minute, but I fully believe that I manifested my current situation (minus the being locked out of my house part). You see, I used to be the kind of person who was a pro at seeing the negative in all situations, I was the President of the pessimists club and this new positive outlook on life is even taking me by surprise. Yet, the day I found myself homeless I stayed calm, cool and collected. I was the one with a level head and a genuine belief that my situation would be getting a lot better.
So there I was on one Thursday night, after I interviewed for the place I am currently living in, manifesting a magical possibility and the craziest part of it all: IT WORKED.
The Secret is real!
For those of you unaware The Secret is a film based on the pseudoscientific law of attraction, which suggests that thinking about certain things will make them appear in one’s life
So here I am, no longer locked out of my new home, watching Will and Grace while I update my two followers on my life. HI Mom and Dad! Just kidding my Mom and Dad definitely do not read my blog.
But really … so maybe 2018 has made me its absolute bitch but I am choosing to enjoy this moment. I am choosing to be grateful that I hit back twice as hard when The Universe tried to knock me down. I am choosing to enjoy this moment of absolute bliss and I am choosing to take the positivity all the way to the bank. LITERALLY … someone pay me to update this website please!
Clearly, I’ve lost track of my point so I’ll leave you with this: Even when it tries its hardest, do not let life knock you down. Sure, you can cry, you can be angry, you can take a seat and catch your breath but eventually it will be necessary to fight back and reclaim your life. I am still convinced that 2018 will be the best year yet; it may have won the first couple of battles but I am absolutely ready to win the war. (Yay!)
