Transforming My Life Project: Day 1

I am a believer in The Law of Attraction. In February 2007 my mother bought me the book, The Secret. The book explains the law of attraction and how to use in to attract the things you want in life. Basically, it tells people how to live life by design.

The book quotes Bob Doyle, Author and Law of Attraction Specialist, stating, "Basically put, the law of attraction says that like attracts like. But we're really talking at a level of thought."

The book goes on to explain how through the law of attraction, your thoughts are manifested in your life. The become real. You can think your life into existence. By sending your thoughts out the universe, you are telling the universe this is what I want.

Initially, I was very skeptical of this book. I read it. It was interesting. I tucked it away.

Then, later in the year, I pulled it out and read it again. I was ready for a change. My life was at a plateau. I had graduated with my Masters Degree and my life had no "next big thing" in sight. I need goals. I am a goal-oriented person and without a "next big thing" to strive for I feel unfulfilled.

After reading The Secret a second time, in the fall of 2007 I made a list of what I wanted in my life and tucked it away in a book.

My list looked like this:

Husband
More Kids
House
Vacation (to the beach)
Jewelry
Wealth
New Job

Would the law of attraction work? Every day I would tell myself inspirational thoughts. I would dream of the life I wanted. I made a very detailed list of all the qualities I wanted in a husband. I envisioned myself drinking margarita's on the beach. I saw myself walking into a beautiful house that I owned.

For Christmas that year, one of my gifts was jewelry. Then, in January of 2008, I met my husband on Match.com. We emailed and talked on the phone for 3 months before we met in person. We had our first date on March 1, 2008. We would have made a date a couple weeks sooner, but I had a vacation planned. My friend, Matt, had invited me to join him on his vacation to Riviera Maya. His (kinda) girlfriend at the time, was not able to go with him so I scored the open spot!

In July 2008 we got engaged - engagement ring, more jewelry. My husband has a son, who now my stepson - more kids (although not be the means I had intended). In November of 2008 I got a new job. In February 2009 we bought a house. After we got married in August 2009, we went to Jamaica for our honeymoon - another beach vacation.

Almost everything on my list now exists in my life!

Looking back, self-doubt has been blocking me from achieving my dream of monetary wealth. So where does the infertility come from? I can vividly remember sitting in a matching conference with prospective adoptive parents who were struggling with infertility. They were heartbroken because they were not matched with the child in question. I thought to myself, "My heart goes out to this couple. I can't imagine what infertility would feel like. I wish I had this experience so I could relate better to them." That pretty much cinched it - thinking my life into existence. That is the first time I have ever shared that experience out loud.

Today I am starting my 'Transforming My Life Project'. One year from now my life will be different than it is today.

This is what my life will look like in a year:

My marriage is happy and thriving.



Our family is happy and thriving.




I work from home.



As a life coach.



We have a beautiful baby, possibly twins.



My book is published.



I make a lot of money.


This is what I drive.


I am thankful for my husband, my boys, my house, my job, and all the blessings in my life. I have achieved a lot. I am a powerful woman who is overflowing with potential. I will achieve my dreams. Over the next year I will post periodic update about the Transforming My Life Project and how successful it is.

If you are a believer in the law of attraction, or would like to be, then I invite you to participate in the Transforming My Life Project. It would be awesome to link up with other powerful women who are ready to transform their lives. We could start a mom revolution. (Seriously if you are interested in starting a project like this of your own, email me and we'll talk.)
