The Secret and Breakthrough

I'm almost finished watching the Oprah show about The Secret, and I just had an "a-ha" moment. Years ago I did the Breakthrough Training (www.accd.org for more information) and it literally changed my life. My kids were 2 and 4 at the time, and I was desperately unhappy. To make this short and sweet, Breakthrough was just about the hardest and best thing I've ever done, and it changed my life. It healed my marriage. It enabled me to continue to stay home with my children. And it helped me to see who God created me to be. What just occurred to me is that much of what Breakthrough teaches is what The Secret is about. Living with intention. Being grateful and seeing what you have. Knowing what's important. Understanding what you're sowing in your relationships and what that will reap.

I'm not saying that Breakthrough fixed everything (darn it!). But it opened my eyes to how I contribute to my own difficulties, and gave me new ways to live. If you ever want more info, just let me know.

Ok, still in PJs (they're pink giraffe print ones, and I love them!), drinking Diet Mountain Dew (yum!), gotta finish watching Oprah...

You have become yourself, largely through believing in yourself, and being smart enough to recognise many of lifes traps, and not get sucked into being a negative person.

You're making a success of yourself, and you deserve to be justly proud of what you've done for yourself and others.

WELL DONE, and keep doing everything you're doing. It makes you such a valuable person to many.

:-) :-).

I've got to watch that Oprah - it's in my Tivo and a friend of mine is raving about it, and has bought some video that goes with it that I will get to watch too. Now I'm even more curious to see what it's all about.

I missed that particular Oprah, but I did see the follow up show. I did sort of have my own "revalation" about 6 years ago, but I wasn't following any books or methods, but my realization was the same. What you put out is what you get back. I just had lunch with a friend who had one of those "ah-ha" moments when she saw the first show. She said it has already changed her life and her relationships. Pretty cool stuff!
