A quote from The Secret:
It is the joy within that creates a magnificent life on the outside. It doesn’t matter where you are, what you are doing, who you are with, or what is happening around you, you take the joy with you.
I kind of touched base on this last week. If we fill ourselves up with material things of course we feel instant joy. Did you ever notice how long it lasts? Not very long. When you are filled up with joy because of the people in your life, accomplishments you have made, and the feeling we get when we give to others, that is the true joy that lasts forever. Surround yourself with people you love, people that make you laugh, those who inspire you. Take a walk in nature and admire all that is there for YOU. Send an old friend a card, help someone load their groceries into their car, volunteer at a local shelter, even if it is only for a day. Be thankful for everything in your life. You will see a tremendous amount of things flow into your life that you have to be thankful for when you are showing gratitude. And, you will feel full of joy which will last you much longer than you can imagine. Because you are in joy, you will spread that to everyone around you.
I am so thankful that my sister-in-law passed The Secret on to me. I am even more thankful that Rhonda Bryne decided to take everything she had learned and everything she knew about The Secret and put it into a book to share with the world. I am thankful for each person who is featured in The Secret for sharing their own personal experiences as proof the The Secret is real. I am thankful that using The Secret has made my life so much more positive and so much more fulfilling. I am thankful for having an open mind and allowing myself to believe in The Secret despite what others may think or say. I am thankful for my angels who have guided me down the right path and have opened my eyes to a better future. I was meant to read this book and I was meant to put it into my life. It is working for me and I only hope that everyone around me allows me to inspire them to make the same positive changes that I have.
