With that being said......

Last week I gave away a copy of the book The Secret. The reason why I gave away a copy of this book was mainly because it has inspired me more than words can describe. I have ALWAYS looked at the negative side of things. Before that book came into my life I thought negatively, I spoke negatively, I lived negatively. Guess what... my life became quite negative.

When reading the book I thought, there is absolutely no way that just changing the way I think will bring upon different results in my life. If I'm tired, it's because I'm tired. I can't change that by thinking about being awake. So, I tested it one day. I was so unmotivated, exhausted and saw no hope in me getting off the couch, away from my movie and cleaning up the mess of a living room my kids made. So, while my mind was thinking how I couldn't do it, I decided to stop dwelling on the fact that I was too tired, and started thinking about how wonderful it was going to be to have my living room clean. I got this jolt of energy, had it done quickly and was motivated to move on from there.

I promise, it works!

This book also explains the importance of gratitude. If you're not grateful, what makes you think the universe (or God in my eyes) will grant you more wishes? Wake up grateful everyday for the things you have, and not dwell on the things you do not have. You may think this is easier said than done, but I'm doing it now, and that's HUGE!

I feel like I have changed my life, my family, my marriage, my financial situations all because of positivity and this book. When I'm not feeling right, or being depressed I instantly change the way I feel and watch myself transform right before my eyes.

The mind is the most powerful thing, and we have power over our minds. Use them for the better, change your ways to positivity and be grateful.... see your life transform right before your eyes!

A few of my favorite quotes out of the book:

Bob Doyle: The emotions are an incredible gift that we have to let us know what we're thinking.

Therefore, if your emotions aren't positive I can pretty much guarantee you that you aren't attracting anyt-hing positive into your life.

Robert Collier (1885-1950) "See the things that you want as already yours. Know that they will come to you at need. Then let them come. Don't fret and worry about them. Don't think about your lack of them. Think of them as yours, as belonging to you, as already in your possession."

Regarding that quote... this is something that my husband does ALL THE TIME. He even got a Chrysler 300 this way.... he visioned, knew it would happen and one day I just went and traded my car in for it ~ he got his wish... and it was a surprise. The car is his dream car, and all he did was put it out in the universe.

Charles Hannel "To acquire love... fill yourself up with it until you become a magnet."

I hope this inspired you ~ and I can't wait to read what inspires you!

My mom loves that book too. Though she prefers the DVD version. As for me, I haven't seen nor read the book but I've been hearing rave reviews about it. Even my seemingly pessimistic friend has read it. :D
