Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

I used to go to all the Abraham-Hicks meetings. I believed in the Law of Attraction. I am certain I attracted a gay husband because I was really wanting a great interior decorator.

So I have this great life now. I have a job, I am healthy, I am off drugs and alcohol, I am happily single and I am writing, which I love. I must have attracted all of that. Well, I’m not exactly sure. My sobriety was the result of an intervention so I didn’t really chose it or want it at the time. My children were both ‘mistakes’ and ‘unplanned’ events that caused me great stress at the time. I never wanted to be single and am certain my path to self-worth was to be married and have someone else love me. And my job is a requirement that I would put in second place after my first place choice: retirement.

And I don’t really own that I created the healthy description. When I got divorced 11 years ago I was 20 pounds overweight. I lost 30 pounds that year and discovered what the words stress, implode and downward spiral really meant. Weight-watchers had nothing to do with my beautifully slender figure.

But look how it turned out. I now live consciously, love my children more than they can ever know, am financially stable, look great, feel happy and independent and most of all I love myself. That’s it. The one thing I always wanted to attract wasn’t outside myself. It was that I wanted to love, appreciate and value myself. That’s an energy, a realization of what really is. It isn’t something that has to be created or attracted. It’s realization. When I changed that energy, my life transformed.

About the Author

I’m a writer, parent of 2 amazing kids, and been through all 12 steps in AA. I am also divorced. My main financial burden is affording my psychologist and my main pleasure is being able to fall asleep without sleeping pills, which doesn’t always happen. My past feels like a lifetime ago and my present feels like a present. I’m one of those people who literally wakes up in the morning grateful that I get to have another day and didn’t kill myself 12 years ago. Mostly my life is now a blessing. I have a lot of stories from those days when it didn’t feel life was a blessing and also about now, wh ...
