I’ll get straight to the point:
I’m sure y’all have heard about the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. If not, then click here to at least have an idea about what it’s about.
The first ‘exercise’, so to say, was to write down 10 things you’re grateful for and why. I did exactly that the next morning.
Topping my list, of course, was my grandfather, whom last week had been diagnosed with Stage 2 Prostate Cancer.
Also on my list was my work, which although I wasn’t very happy about, decided to put in on the list anyway.
Later in the evening, I got 2 good news from my workplace; something I NEVER IMAGINED would happen to me.
I wrote these exact words on my list:
5. I’m thankful that I have a job, because there are people who are unemployed.
But get this:
Early the next morning, I found out that the hospital did more tests on my grandfather, and the results came out that he didn’t have cancer after all, although there might be a high chance that he might.
My exact words on the list?
1. I’m so thankful that my grandfather is still with me because he is one of the best grandfathers anyone could wish to have.
And that, of course, was my most important gratitude and the one I prioritized most at the time.
And of course, that good news was the best that happened out of the list I wrote.
Of course, it took a while for it all to sink it, because I was still flabbergasted that just ONE DAY of practise had already resulted in such rewards. I wasn’t expecting it to come so soon, but of course, I’m not complaining.
Call it coincidence if you will, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m a believer. ;)
