Negative Draws In Negative! Positive Draws In Positive!

For the past few weeks we have been attracting nothing but negative.  The power of attraction works for both negative and positive.  Unfortunately there's been a lot of negativity for my family lately.  I have to admit, I have not been putting on my happy face and thinking positive thoughts as much as I should be.  And when you don't, you're bound to get wet from all the storms!  So today I'm putting my umbrella over my head and enjoying the rain instead of hating it.

Living With A Negative Person Can Effect You

Like I've mention before, I am usually a positive person, I try to stay positive on everything!  But, when you live with someone who glass is alway half empty, it can really aggravate the person who refers the glass being half full. After you feel like your fighting a losing battle because the negative words seem to be stronger than your positive words.  I admit, it took me down.  I stopped being positive, at least as much as I was.  I was getting weaker, and weaker until the law of attraction got me.  Yup, it all began when Adam waited until May to get his car inspected.  It was due in April.  I had encouraged him to have his check out in the beginning of April, but nope he didn't.  So he waited  until the first week in May.  Guess what, he had a lot of problems and the car was not inspectable.  After 2 days we found out it was going to cost $1400 to fix his car.  Oh man, that's a lot of money.

The More I Stay Positive...The Bigger The Rewards!

My life has taken to the right path!  I can not believe everything that has been happening to me since I've started using the Secret!  Money has always been the #1 positive thought I have focus on, and it is coming in all kinds of forms.  From free meals as I stated in my last post to today amazing discovery!

I have been using what normally would've been "negative" thoughts into positive thoughts!  For instance yesterday, I had to make a call to my mechanic because I'm hearing a rough sound when I turn right on my car.  Thinking it might be a tie rod, but what usually would've been a thought like "How am I going to pay for this"...I thought "Yeah, I'm getting my car fix, no worries, the money will be there!"  and left it at that.  So this morning I was looking at the calendar and noticed Mother's Day is next SUNDAY!  Well I've been working on some projects on the computer.  They are not done yet, so I jumped on the computer because I'm planning on finishing it today.  But, I wanted to just make sure I had enough money in the bank to finish them, which, I felt positive that I did.  Adam got paid last Wednesday, and there should definitely be enough to finish these projects!  So I login to my bank account and the balance came up in our account.  It was $1927.54!  Last I knew we had around $400.00 in our account, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw this.  Wasn't going to question it, but obviously I wanted to see where the $1500.00 came from.  It was a bonus from Adam's work.  Adam's gotten bonuses before, but only about $700.00 (after taxes)..this is more than doubled!  I was ecstatic!  Now my heart is pumping and am so thankful for finding out about the secret.  Even when things that can be "a negative", I've turned it into a positive, and the more I seem to do it the bigger the rewards I'm getting!  I am loving my life and everyone in it, and especially the Universe!

How Is This Happening?

I've been trying to stay focus on my positive attitude.  Sometimes is can be really hard, especially when you're around others who are negative or can really irritate you.  Then there are those days (especially for a women), that everything bothers you (PMSing).  Friday, I have to say was a bad (PMSing) day!  My boyfriend seem to irritate me every other minute!  I would start to build up a strong negative feeling, and boy did I feel it, but as soon as I realized it, and this was the hard part, I stopped and said to myself "Angie, it's ok, everything is GREAT!"  Sometimes I had to say it three to four times before my mind and heart felt it.  At a few points, I thought, it would be nice to let the negative, sad feeling come over me, I mean, maybe it would in away let me feel better, but I fought that battle, and said NO, I AM GOING TO FEEL GOOD NO MATTER HOW HARD IT'LL BE!  So I did this over, and over and over again on Friday.  I felt I was in overdrive, because it just seem that I was catching myself being negative a lot!

Then, at 1:00pm, Adam & I had an appointment at the CDC (Child Development Center), to have our youngest son evaluated because his speech and comprehension is very behind for a 3 year old.  So after 3 hours of answering questions and them playing with Jayden, the two doctors that were doing the evaluation, left the room to discuss what they believe is wrong or what can help with Jayden.  When they return, they informed us that Jayden has a small form of Autism.  Of course, any parent hearing those words can change their mood very quickly and not a positive, good mood.  Which it did happen for a few minutes, but again, I caught myself and told myself this is not a bad thing.  We all know now why there is a delay with Jayden, and now he will be getting more helpful services.  Plus the doctors said they are very optimistic.  I mean it's just a small form of Autism.  I ended up walking out of the CDC in a very good, positive mood!

So, where am I going with this?  Well it seems that the more I caught myself, turning negative in to positive, the bigger the reward.  Let me explain.  Adam and I decided to go to Applebees for dinner since we all were hungry.  So we did.  We ordered our dinner, ate and had a very enjoyable meal.  The waiter came and asked if we were going to be having desert, and we said no, and that we would need 2 take out containers!  So he left, and a few minutes passed and came back with our containers.  He left again as we put our leftover food in to the containers.  About 5 minutes passed and the waiter came over, leaned next to our booth and asked, how is you're day?  I said good.  He then asked, Anything new going on?  I was a little puzzled about that question, but replied, no, nothing new.  The waiter then just continued trying to do small talk with us for about 3 minutes.  We were just sitting there, waiting for our bill, so we can leave.  After those few minutes went by, the waiter said, "Well have a nice evening".  Adam and I looked at each other, and said thank you, and continued to wait for our bill.  The waiter then said, "you all are all set".  Adam and I still continue to look at each other with "huh" facial expressions.  Then the waiter said, "you're bill and tip have been paid for".  We didn't know what to do.  We just continued to sit in the booth with disbelief.   The waiter said, "yeah, you're all set.  A gentleman paid for your bill and tip because, he remembers being young and living in hard times and now that he has the wealth he'd like to share it with others, but he wanted to stay anonymous."  Of course I had to tell the waiter, "I don't want to leave and have security come chasing us", and he said, "No, you're all good" and then he left.

So Adam & I got our stuff and left the restaurant with such mix emotions.  We felt thankful but yet a little frighten.  But we went on our way, finished Easter shopping and headed home.  Then when we got home, I went on to Facebook as I always do, and saw I had a new message.  So, I checked the message and it was someone from a local radio station.  I had won the Facebook Friday giveaway, which was a $20 gift card to a local restaurant.    I was amazed, and it must had been because I stayed positive that day, no matter how hard it was at points.  I feel the harder I stayed positive, the bigger the rewards!  It was an amazing day!

Why Did I Stop?

The universe works in mysterious ways.  I stopped thinking positive everyday for a month now, well if you look at my last post, it's been a month to the date, how mystical is that?  I guess it kind of stopped when we received our federal refund check.  It's amazing how money can over power you.  Don't get me wrong, I love the fact of having security in our checkbook, but in one month we have blown our federal check.  Okay, not all of it was blown carelessly.  I'm so grateful, that we were able to catch up on our lot rent and we were able to pay ahead, which means I don't have to worry about paying our lot rent until August, which is great feeling.  Adam paid over $1,000 to get his car up to par, so that is good too.  The foolishness I feel, Adam got me the new ipod touch.  Not a necessity but trying not to feel to guilty, I don't get to buy anything for me anymore.  Adam also wanted me to get some new shoes, since the ones I was wearing were hand me downs.  So we bought the new shape up shoes from Sketcher, I must add, I love them.  They are so comfy!  Then this week Adam bought a new cell phone.  Money was going down and I was trying to convince him to buy a track phone.  But, thinking in my head how Adam works every day to provide us food, a roof over our head without complaining, while I get to stay home with the kids and not have to worry about driving to work in awful weather as he does.  He really wanted to new iphone 4.  After adding all of it up, it was way to much, and most of the money is gone.  I finally got the courage to tell him how much money was left.  He didn't get mad, he just said, well I guess I don't get no cell phone.  I asked, how much would it be for the iphone 3?  He check the prices and for everything (phone, case & accessories) it would be $121.00.  A lot cheaper than the 4, so with little push, I was able to convince him to buy the iphone 3.  He bought it and loves it!  I still was a little nervous because I wrote a check out for his car payment on February 22 and we kept getting phone calls saying we owe them money.  I couldn't understand where the check went.  Then I thought the worst, the check got lost in the mail, now I'm going to either have to stop payment on the check which will cost $30 or just send out another check for the same amount, and if the first check is found then we'd be ahead, but I really didn't want to write another check, because if both checks got through at the same time, I won't have any money for groceries.  Last night I didn't know what to do.

Then I talked to myself about how I haven't been thinking positive lately, and how I haven't been living the secret.  So for some inspiration, I bought and downloaded "The Power" from Amazon for the Kindle which you can add that app to your ipod touch, iphone or even computer!  I started reading it, and it put me in a positive state.  I woke up this morning feeling positive and how everything is going to go my way!  So I got on the computer as I do every morning, and thought, well let's check the status on Adam car payment.  I logged in, and before the first thing that popped out was stating "You Are 40 Days Delinquent"....it did not say that this morning.  I clicked on payment history and whoa-lah...payment was received this morning!  After stressing for over 2 weeks, and when I finally relaxed and believed in the secret, everything just fell in place!   What does this say to me...DON'T STOP BELIEVING IN THE POWER!

My Gratitude Book

I write every night what I'm grateful for, and I really mean it.  Tonight I'm a little depressed, not sure why.  Maybe it's because Adam, my hubby, informed me that we can not afford for my mom & I to take a vacation out of state, on a bus tour.  We did this last year and five years ago, we had a blast.  I guess I'm depressed because Adam get's play his fantasy football every year ($100) and plays on a hockey league twice a year ($120 total), why can't I take a vacation.  I don't have any outside fun activities in my life.  I'm a stay home mom that just stays home and do mother things.  Don't get me wrong, I love being with my kids, being a mom, heck I would like another child, even though Adam wouldn't like that idea.  I'm just feeling sorry for myself a little bit tonight, and maybe I should go right to be.

It's All About Me

I am suffering from cabin fever really bad.  And the problem when cabin fever kicks in things can go wrong, especially to your mind set.  I haven't been really thinking about negative thoughts, just not enough positive ones. Which will not help me if I want a positive life!

It's hard to stay 100% positive when negative things happen.  Of course, I feel negative things are happening, because I live with someone who always thinks the glass is half empty.  I try to stay positive, and then he has to always tell me the negative side.  My dad is the same way and it bugs me!  How can anyone be so negative all the time?

When I write or talk about negativity, that's how I start feeling.  Not a good feeling, it actually makes me want to cry.  I don't want to feel like this, I hate it and I want it gone!  So today, I've decided to make some changes.  I need to deal with a couple negative thoughts so I can feel better.  One of the worse things I tend to feel negative about, is me, my looks.  I have always had very low self esteem.  Except for when I was about 20 years old, at my lowest weight ever (140 pounds) and I felt great, attractive and beautiful.  What happen?  Well I quit smoking and started eating.  70 pounds later, I back where I was when I graduated from high school.  A weight that I told myself I would never weigh again.  This is hard to deal with every single day.  I feel like I'm fighting a battle that I can't win.  I am knocked down, and can not get back up.

So to conquer this feeling, I need to focus on me for a bit.  For the past six years, my life has revolve around my children and only  my children.  Don't get me wrong, I love my boys and my life is still going to revolve around them, but it's also going to revolve around me too!  It's going to take a little adjusting, but I know I can do it.

Today, feeling at my ugliest, I decided, even though I'm staying home, not planing on going anywhere, I'm going to fix my hair and put some make up on and put on some nice clothes and feel attractive.  Even though my first look at myself wasn't "Wow, look at me" though I made it be my second and last thought.

There is a beautiful person right here!  Looking at it, well, I sure do look better dressed, hair done and some make up on then I do when I'm lounging around in my pajamas.  My life does matter, and I can do whatever I want.  I will have whatever I want.  I will get whatever I want.  I am beautiful.  I am worthy. I am a good person. I am a great mom and I am just beginning a life I will always love!

I also will be focusing on more positive thinking and I will be writing what I'm grateful for every night, right here on my blog.  Some of the things I right may or may not be "real", no one will know.  But that's the secret, and that's what I will be gaining!

Update On My Weight & Something Happen Today...

I have not been in such a positive mood since I've watched "The Secret".  Morning, noon and night, all I can think about is positive things.  Once in awhile I slip and have a negative moment, but as soon as that negative thought comes in, I notice it instantly and in 2.2 seconds, I'm changing my thought in to a positive one!

For the past 5 days I've been seeing myself losing weight, being happy, looking good and feeling great!  It's all happening.  What am I saying, well lets see, I haven't been counting points, exercising just asking, believing and receiving!  I have lost 1 pound in 5 days without trying.

Another amazing thing that happen today, was the weather.  Who know that I could change the weather.  The weatherman said it would be cloudy all day and some flurries.  I really don't like driving in the snow, sorry for the negative, but it's scary and I avoid it if I can.  I had to bring my youngest son to school and about an hour before I brought him, it started snowing.  Oh man, I thought to myself, but then I thought quickly.  I looked out the window and smiled and said, "look how blue that sky is and how bright the sun is, it's beautiful".  I repeated this to myself over and over and over and smiling and smiling and smiling, and seeing it more, and more and more!  Guess what, as I was getting the boys ready to get in the car, the clouds were clearing up, the blue sky was peaking through and the bright sun was fighting through the lingering clouds.  My heart raced, I could not stop smiling and feeling so good.  The whole trip to the school and back was beautiful.  It felt like a beautiful spring day.  Totally the opposite what the weatherman had said.

My life is changing every minute and I'm loving it!  Positive thinking and positive receiving!

Positive Thinking And I'm Shrinking

Three days so far in to my positive thinking for becoming a thinner me!  Here is what the numbers are:

Saturday: 211.4
Sunday:  210.8
Monday: 210.6

The numbers are slowly going down.  By the end of the year I will be at the weight I've seen myself as!

The Beginning Of "The Secret"

First let me say, I love reading other blogs! Blogs have inspired me to do fun things with my children, fun things for myself,  knowledgeable things and A LOT more. The latest blog I've been inspired by is Tawna's "My Secret Experiment".  I was confused at first because I needed to know what the Secret was.  So, I did what she states all along her blog, which was either READ or WATCH "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne.  So I watched the DVD, and as soon as I started watching it, I was hooked.  My life is about to change, for better and I'm going to be happier!

Of course we seem to have that doubt in the back of our head, and it came through mine.  It said "Do You Really Think This Will Work?"  and as soon as the words entered my head, I changed my mine frame to "You Silly Goose, What Are You Thinking, Of Course This I Going To Work" and all of a sudden I could feel my smile getting bigger and bigger.  I'm changing the way I'm thinking.  Obviously some negative thoughts are going to enter my head before I have time to "think" about it, but as soon as they do, I'm catching it and throwing it away and inserting a positive thought to replace it.  This will be a never ending  way of living.  It will be hard in the beginning, but I'm sure once the positive thinking takes over, the negative will vanish little by little until positive thoughts is all I'm thinking about!

I decided to start small, and not for myself.  I wanted the people around my to feel some good.  I asked the universe to help my parents and my brother.  As I was talking to the universe I start visualizing my parents small debt problem floating away.  My mom had an old van she wanted to sell to the scrap metal shop and figured she'd get no more than $200 for it.  Her bank account was $390.00 negative (which I must add, never happens).  My dad got his small paycheck for his side job for $30.00, no a lot but it WILL help.  Well yesterday they brought her van to the scrap metal shop and they gave her $360.00 in cash...do the figuring.  The universe will help if you ask and believe and visualize.

So with my brother, he's had his ups and downs financially, even though he is a pretty positive person himself.  Though if he new the secret I'm sure he'd have more happiness and financially moments entering his life.  So I talked to the universe and wanted my brother to get a little more money coming in to his home.  They've been struggling with the new every other week paycheck, since they've been use to weekly paychecks, and I know and been there, and it kind of sucks helps you budget better,  remember positive thinking.  So I visioned my brother to have a hand full of cash entering his hand, again I could feel the smile on my face getting bigger and my heart swelling and feeling so good.

Well last night my brother was telling me that a few years ago his company had giving over 100 shares to each employee.  He didn't think much about it at the time and let it be.  This past week, the company was encouraging their employees to sell the stocks, so having no knowledge of stocks, my brother just went on the computer, hit a few buttons and let it be.  20 minutes later he sold his stock, and low and behold he will be getting over $2000.00!  What a break!  I'm so happy for him and with his income tax refund coming within a few weeks, he will be set.

Now as for me, I had so much to ask the universe.  Where do I begin?  I said, you know I can ask it whatever I want, whenever I want, as long as I'm asking, believing and willing to receive!  The first think I asked was for me to lose weight.  I want to go on the scales every morning and see a drop in my weight.  So yesterday I went on and I weigh 211.4 pounds.  I asked the universe and visualize the number dropping.  This morning, when I got on the scales it said 210.8.  I don't care how small of a lost, as long as the number is dropping!  This is exciting for me, and my life will be everything I want it to be and each day I will be so thankful for everything good in my life.
