The Secret

What Is The Secret

Whooo hooo! It's Monday! Usually Mondays aren't my thing, but it's one day closer till Andrew comes home, so this Monday is a little different. You understand :)

He should be here late Thursday afternoon if all goes as scheduled. It really can't get here fast enough, I can't wait to see him again, and hug & kiss him. Oh boy! You have no idea. hehe

This weekend was filled with a lot of nothing, I purposely did very little around the house, cause I knew that would force me into a busy week and then the time would pass a little faster. Taylor is home sick today though, both the girls have horrible coughs that never seem to stop. It's driving me crazy actually. Part of me wants to just tell them to STOP COUGHING already!!! The sound of it's getting on my nerves. Now I sound like a bad mom, but I'm not...I promise. I've been faithfully at their side pampering them, and hoping they get better soon. The constant hacking just grates on my nerves. Even as I type this it's hard to really gain any concentration because all I hear around me is coughing...

In other news I have a DVD in the mail that I can't wait to get. It's called "The Secret" and sounds really interesting. Just a few weeks ago I was thinking about my neighbor and how lucky she seems to be. When we go to bingo, I'll be damned if she doesn't win every time. She'll sit at our table and tell us she can "just feel it" that somebody's going to win at our table, and we all kind of growl back at her. But you know what's funny? Somebody does win at our table, but it's always her! So it got me thinking about how her positive attitude may be working for her. I've always thought that thoughts are powerful...on a deep deep level, but this is one of the few times I've seen it so apparent. I credit a lot of the things that come along in our life, to what we've asked for...what we believe deep down, most of the time sub-consciously - those thoughts always seem to form our reality.

So here I was a few weeks ago, wondering what it's all about, and how to get a better grasp into making my thoughts work for me, and then out of no where I heard about "The Secret" and how it's all about the "Law of Attraction", so it sounds very interesting to me. It's another example of the way stuff comes along..sometimes you can really think about something, and ask questions, and then before you know it the answer comes to you in all sorts of different avenues. Anyway, I feel that I have a clue..or a slight idea of how things are run, but it will be nice to see it explained from people that have studied it and made it work to their advantage in their own life.

Basically because I always run into a little problem; I can tell myself I want something until I'm blue in the face, but I don't think it's until you truly believe your going to get what you want, down to your core, that it's going to come to fruition. So my question is, how do you make yourself believe something and get rid of those deep down thoughts inside your head telling you that it's not possible? We've all heard of self-defeating thoughts, and that's what I'm talking about. I am very self defeating for one reason or another, and it always seems that as much as I want something there's always this little voice in the back of my head telling me I'll never get there.

But can go HERE to watch the trailer for the DVD - take a minute and check it out and let me know what you think! Personally, I can't wait to watch it, it may not have all the answers, but more than anything I will enjoy the philosophical nature of it...cause I'm always a sucker for philosophy!

I have always held to the fact that we create our own reality. But this way of thinking is not new in fact if you read Dianetics the book by L Ron Hubbard yes the one Tom Cruise lives by you will see he also talks of the power of the mind. It is a little put off ing as how he also goes on to talk about some other far-fetched stuff but the mind power trip is thought provoking to say the least.

Cathy - You should totally get it. It really is a wonderful movie and will do wonders for your outlook on your life in general..after you watch it, it's like looking at life with a whole different set of eyes :)

Poody - Dianetics has been on my reading list for a while, but I've never gotten around to it. Obviously..I need to though!

Jason - After taking Taylor to the emergency room Monday night, because of her wild coughing fits, they gave us some good meds, and she and Audrey both are feeling MUCH better! Cause yeah...coming home to sick kids would suck big time!
