The Law of Attraction. Such a broad subject, yet so specifically designed for every individual. To be honest, it was always something that I think intimidated me. There was so much I wanted in my life and the law of attraction told me I could have it all. Where would I start? What would I need to do? I began my research and looked at success stories. So many people have achieved so many things, but what did I need? Like I said before, I think that the law of attraction is individually designed for all of us and I truly feel that its never ending- mostly because I think that there is always a way we can better ourselves. Thats what the law of attraction is about, right? Creating the best version of ourselves?
When I was in high school, I was your basic negative nelly. I think at the time, and where I went to school, it was just a norm for teenagers. “Okay, its cool not to care about this”…”Don’t get too excited about that”. “I hate my life”, was a common phrase thrown around every day. Its as if we were all just trying to compete over who was having a worse day. After graduating and starting college, I was by myself pretty much all the time. My friends moved away, I wasn’t meeting anyone new in school and instead of being upset about that, I felt relieved. I started recognizing my own wants and what I wanted was to not be so negative about everything. I wanted to see the good in things. And that was it. After that my mindset completely changed. I don’t know exactly when and I don’t know exactly how, all I know is that I became a person who stopped putting a dark cloud over everything. I would have a bad day, and old me would complain hours on end but new me would say “okay, why was it a bad day and was it really that bad?”
I didn’t know it at the time, but for the past two years I’ve been attracting this new outlook on life that I never knew I wanted or needed. I was unknowingly practicing the law of attraction. By adapting a positive attitude, I was attracting so many good things. I started being more present when it came to my family and friends. I started figuring out what I wanted to do in school. I started appreciating the little things in life. I started becoming the best version of me and I felt so good about myself. The law of attraction has allowed me to become more positive when it came to how I thought about myself. Instead of feeling discouraged, I started feeling inspired. I could do anything I put my mind to and my future was in my hands. I put aside fear of other peoples opinions and created this blog. Something I secretly always wanted to start but never felt like I would be good at.
I learned that complaining and being negative gets you nowhere. It won’t help you achieve anything. If you want something you need to work towards it and you need to have a good attitude about it. So this is how the law of attraction is working for me. I don’t think you ever stop using it and if anything, you just begin to recognize when you’re using it.
As I type these words, I realize that this exact post is an act of manifestation. The past couple of days I’ve felt like I haven’t been producing the kind of content that shows who I am as a person. I wanted to write more about the things that matter to me and give people a chance to learn more about me. So, I sat down and I wrote this post and rereading it now, I’m really happy with it because it displays the kind of thoughts that I wanted to showcase. By using the law of attraction, I recognized what it was I that I was lacking on my blog, thought about what I wanted, acted on it, and then through the action, produced this post.
Are you practicing the law of attraction? Do you believe in it? I would love to hear your stories! Happy blogtober day fourteen…
