Creation Is A Beautiful Thing
About four years ago I was working night audit at a hotel in downtown Seattle. I lived in a microscopic studio apartment. My only belongings were a fish tank, a TV, clothes and some dishes. I was in a miserable relationship. I was a drunk. I was on the run from all the bad things I’ve done in my life. Oh, I thought I was happy. But we all know I wasn’t It was at this time a friend of mine, gave me a book called “The Secret”. I had never heard of the book or the movie at the time. He didn’t tell me a lot about the book, just said that I should read it. I took it home and started reading. What I learned was the IDEA of the laws of attraction and that I could put them to work in my life.
That night I envisioned myself working as a property manager, living on the property and enjoying my job and life. Being an impatient person, I was put off by the fact that this didn’t have immediate effects, and so I stopped working on attracting those positive things into my life. But the IDEA was still there, percolating. I started expanding on it and one night, after a drunken brawl I had an AHA moment, a moment of clarity. I knew with every essence of my being that only I could control my life and the things I brought into it. So, I took control and started creating my life.
Tonight I sit in my beautiful three-bedroom home. I’ve put in an honest day’s work, helping my community through my actions, networking with others who also do good works. I’m content. More than that – I’m happy with the world that I’ve created. And I’m excited as I reflect on the enormity of what I’ve done, I’m excited about what else I can now do. My world is evolving every day based on what I create. And creation is a beautiful thing.
