Oh man! I was feeling so confident in my new found health and strength that yesterday I daringly tried 3 foods I haven’t eaten for a while. Big mistake! I spent most of the night awake with stomach pains, a sore throat and feeling feverish and have been feeling bad for most of today.
I know what you’re thinking…must be the Easter biscuits, but I’m not so sure, it could well have been something else (or I’m just in denial, as they tasted so good!)
Even though I felt awful, I was not going to be deterred by this set back. So, I got up early and began preparing the fabric for the commission I’m working on, making 6 of my handmade items. It’s a testament to how far my health has improved that I could even get out of bed after a bad food intolerance reaction.
To take my mind off my physical symptoms, I played the Gratitude Game as I worked, giving thanks out loud to all the objects I was using. I then expanded this into giving thanks for all the wonderful things in my life. One of them was the DVD of The Secret, which started me on this path and really was the seed of the idea for The Pollyanna Plan.
Day 67, Reason 67: Today I am grateful for The Secret (which introduced me to The Law of Attraction) and to the person who brought it into my life.
I hadn’t ever heard of The Law of Attraction before I watched The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. I was blindly going through life, flowing all sorts of mixed energy and feelings out into The Universe and attracting some very mixed results back. A few years ago, when I became ill again, I received a DVD from my Mum’s friend, who lives on the other side of the world. He didn’t tell me anything about it, other than to suggest I watch it.
I thought it was going to be a documentary or something, but the DVD turned out to be The Secret (the original version, which features Esther Hicks.) I was glued to the screen as soon as it began and listened in awe, fascination and wonder at everything that was being explained to me. This was before The Secret became mainstream, so I really was being introduced to something I’d never imagined even existed.
The Secret focuses a little too much on money and material things for my liking, but it was the perfect starting point. From then on, I began reading voraciously about The Law of Attraction and tried very hard to apply it to my life. But it wasn’t until I re read Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting by Lynn Grabhorn at the start of 2013 that something clicked and I really began to understand how to make it work for me. I guess I wasn’t ready for it the first time round.
So, here I am writing this blog, finding a daily reason to feel glad/happy/joyful and really seeing some fantastic results in my life. I am so incredibly grateful to The Secret and toUncle Bryan! 🙂
I’ll leave you with my favourite quote from The Secret by Michael Bernard Beckwith:
298 days to go
298 reasons to feel glad/happy/joyful to find
£271.82 to raise for Save the Children
If you have enjoyed reading this post, maybe you would like to sponsor The Pollyanna Plan (365 days to find 365 reasons to feel glad/happy/joyful) by making a small donation to my chosen charity, Save the Children.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
