The Secret

Life is hard. And sometimes it feels like nothing goes right. Like a downward spiral, and there is no way to reverse it. But there is. The way we handle life's ups and downs is up to us. A very good friend of mine recently got me this book called The Secret. I hadn't heard of it, but it is very popular. It is about learning how to control our thoughts so that we think positive thoughts all the time. Because if you think positively you will attract more positive thoughts and your life will become more positive, and exactly what you want. It is actually very interesting and insightful. In this book it talks about making goals for yourself and to help keep those thoughts of what you want with you, it talks about a vision board/book. I have heard about these, and I started making one a couple years back, but obviously never followed through. Today is different. I went and got my vision book and made the very first page! I am starting today with setting my goals and making sure that I achieve them! 

This is my dream/vision book! :) I loved this quote when I saw it and thought that it is perfect for the purpose of this book! 

 My very first page of the book! It says what is it used for and the day that I started it! :)

Also, the same friend that gave me the book, gave me advice about myself. I am the kind of person who will always put everyone and everything before myself. Which is good at times, but then who takes care of me? So her advice was to start doing things for myself, and that is exactly what I did today! I went to the store and got my dream book, but also got a new sketch book and pencils! I have always loved to draw and sketch things, but I haven't in a while, and I have never had real charcoal pencils to sketch with!

 My beautiful new sketch book! :)

My first drawing in my new book! :)

Today was the first day in a while that I was truly happy! I am starting to slowly change, and become a better person! :D Life is good!

  1. I LOVE the Secret, Kayla!! I'm so excited that you've been introduced to it, and are applying it in your life. I really need to get working on applying it in my life. Because I have realized that when I do think positively all the time, I really do attract more positive in my life. And I love it! I taped a bunch of index cards to my wall behind my bed that say things about myself like... "I am perfect" "I love who I am" "I love everyone and everything around me" etc. I have them all over my wall. And, it really does help! I just have to try to remember to read them to myself everyday, and truly start to believe them. Also, I had NO IDEA that you liked to draw! That is incredible! You are really good, too! So good for you, babe. I'm proud of you, and think it's awesome that you are trying to turn your life around in a positive way. :) I'm here with you, every step of the way! I love you so much! :)
