I’ve been putting this blog post off for a little while.
I’m a pretty quiet and private type of person to some extent.
Doing this is taking me out of my comfort zone; I’m not one to usually write as such, often preferring to spend time playing with and losing myself in my digital art.
When it comes to writing, I get ‘stage fright’!
Growing up I was a bit of a worry. I was the ‘wild child’ of the family, the black sheep. There were circumstances that lead to this which I wont go into here, however for the most part as a teen and well into my late 20′s, I was erratic, self absorbed, selfish, unreliable and angry at the world. I partied hard, couldn’t hold down a job to save my life, and bounced in and out of one bad relationship after another. My life was pretty much a train wreck in general on all levels.
Rather than acknowledge I was responsible for the negativity that continued to gather in my life, it was easier to blame it on past experiences and/or other people. For the longest of times my life was one disasterous situation after another due to having contracted that dreaded affliction known as PLOM (Poor Little Ol’ Me) Syndrome.
In my early 20′s I met and became friends with a lovely lady named Jennifer. Jennifer is a firm believer in LOA (Law of Attraction) and one day (as I was moaning about yet another deadbeat guy that I’d hooked up with) she suggested that I write a list of the expectations I had regarding a longterm relationship and the qualities that I sought and value in a life partner. I did as suggested and wrote out that list on a bit of paper and placed it in my wallet. Occasionally I would take it out and read over it from time to time, then refold it and put it away again for safe keeping.
Fast forward 10+ years. I get interested in computers and start hanging out on an IT related discussion forum. There was one member there that caught my attention. I liked his online presence, his sense of humor and the way he interacted with the other forum members. At that stage, apart from my forum exchanges with him and his name, I knew absolutely nothing about him. A GF and I were chatting online and I told her about this individual and out of the blue announced “I want to have a coffee with him one day!”. The chances of that happening were pretty remote; I lived in Sydney, he lived in NY and I wouldn’t have classed us as anything but online aquaintances (vague ones at that) and for all I knew he could have even been married!?
Today, Chris (that forum member that caught my attention) and I have been married for going on three years in July and guess what? As I was decluttering and packing to move from Sydney to NY, I came across my list and as I sat for a moment reading through it, I realised that Chris fulfilled every one of my wants and needs that I’d voiced on that bit of paper all those years earlier!
The past 3yrs whilst wonderful certainly haven’t been ‘easy’. Chris lost his job about 4-5mths after we married. My daughter has had some pretty significant health and emotional issues that have certainly stressed the relationships between the three of us on occasions. I’m not able to work at this stage as we haven’t had the financial reserves available to apply for mine and my daughter’s Adjustment of Status, which means Chris has been under a huge amount of pressure as the sole bread winner, working insanely long hours with the business he created shortly after losing his job.
I’m sure there must be more to life than watching my husband work day in and day out to just scrape through to pay the bills and surviving. There has to be a ‘better’ way! I know there is a ‘better’ way, as I’ve tapped into it before in regards to meeting and marrying my life partner. Now, to just figure out how to tap into that again on a conscious and deliberate level to bring about change and improvement!?
I can’t remember how or when I first became aware of Sarah Prout. I’ve been a fan though since I invested in the Sprout Buzz Ecourse.
Recently Sarah and her twin flame, Sean Patrick Simpson opened an intake for Adventures in Manifesting. I soooo wanted to participate; it struck a deep chord within me. A chance to participate in a course to help me kick start my journey in manifesting. Here started my dilemma. I didnt want to ask Chris for the money to enrol in the course because I know what a strict budget we are on atm.
Sarah and Sean were offering a giveaway of one free place in AIM. I can’t remember exactly what my comment was but it was to the effect that I would enter and if I were to gain the free place, it would be another wonderful example of manifesting and the law of attraction.
Well, Sarah and Sean had a surprise up their sleeves! They decided rather than giving that opportunity to just one person, they would extend that opportunity to everyone! I’m now entering my second week of AIM and loving every minute of it and they are offering the same opportunity for you to participate in this wonderful experience too!
If you believe in the law of attraction and want to join with an amazing group of like minded, supportive, vibrant, inspiring and motivated individuals to make positive changes within your life and work towards manifesting your dreams and goals, please take a closer look at Adventures in Manifesting. The course is $97 or there is the option to join and do the course for FREE! Whats the catch? Absolutely NONE!
You can find further information at AdventuresInManifesting.org, I hope you’ll choose to take action and be a part of this wonderful adventure with us!
Thank you Sarah and Sean!
Enjoy your day!
