It’s MY Birthday!!
That’s right! It’s my birthday today!!! Kinda funny… this is the first year I think ever that I just don’t care all that much. Too many other exciting things going on! On the other hand, I have to admit that I wish someone would at least try to make a big deal out of it, ya know? I mean… I’m taking myself out to lunch, I’m going shopping by myself… I had to remind my husband what I wanted for my b-day dinner (a little tradition of ours) AND he wasn’t planning on getting me a gift!!! He said “Oh- you wanted that ON your birthday??” Someday, he is going to surprise me… I just know it. Yeah, right. Keep dreaming! LOL!
There are a lot of exciting things happening though. Today is not only my birthday but the start of my 18th week and 5th month of pregnancy!!! Holy CRAP! 5 months along already!!! In so many ways it still feels a little surreal, but now that the baby is moving around a bit and I definitely am showing it has begun to feel real. I feel as though it is really happening and I will actually get to meet this little person in just 4 short months!! In terms of my showing, this cartoon says it all. Just yesterday a bunch of colleagues who haven’t seen my in awhile were all touching my belly and it was… odd. I kind of laughed it off but couldn’t help but feel mildly violated! My husband is still a little freaked out by the belly, but he did say it looked cute! I love my baby belly!!!
The other exciting news is that we might be close to FINALLY getting an offer on our house!!! What a GREAT GREAT GREAT birthday present that would be!!
As you can see, there are many exciting things that have happened to us over the past year or so. I attribute all of these great things to my study and practice of The Secret. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just Google it. The main theory behind it is simply the power of positive thinking. When you surround yourself with positive energy, then the things you want and hope for are attracted right back to you. I kid you not, when I started to read this book, I wanted a new job, more money, a baby and quite simply to be happy and content. I HAVE GOTTEN ALL OF THESE THINGS by applying The Secret. Another way to look at it is to call it a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you THINK that bad things are going to happen to you, then bad things are probably going to happen to you. Imagine that if you change your outlook and start thinking about things in a positive light, then good things will only come your way! I have a friend who seems to constantly have bad luck happen to her- I keep reminding her of The Secret and how important it is to think positively, even when things seem horrible. Yet, every e-mail and phone call I ever get is how desperate and horrible her situation and finances seem to be. I know it seems insane, but if she’d just change her line of thinking I KNOW that things will get better for her! Being who I am now, it is so hard to be around this kind of negative line of thinking.
Now that I’ve gone on and on…. my main advice is to be happy and think positively in all aspects of your life and you will be rewarded!!!
