I have always been a big believer in thoughts becoming things. Also known as manifesting. I was in high school and there was a boy that everyone liked including me. Alas I was not his type…Or so I thought. Anyway long story short, I told myself one day I’m going to date him, and lo and behold a year later it happened. Now stay with me it gets better.
After the boy situation, anything I wanted I would manifest it and in some way it would appear. At 19 I came to New York for a vacation with my aunt and uncle and I fell in love with the city. I remember being so depressed on my way home because I didn’t want to leave. I remember saying to my ex boyfriend (not the same one fyi) one day I’m going to live there. He of course was pissed because we were in a pretty serious relationship at the time. But in my mind I felt like this is where I’m supposed to be, so get on board. Fast forward to 2017 I live in New York and have been here for 7 years.
Now the boy from school may not be the best example. Also I’m sure this is not what Oprah means when she talks about manifestation. However I use the boy and New York example to say, at both points of my life, I realized if I believe in it I can achieve it. Which brings me to today. In June I created a vision board on all the things I wanted to achieve as a blogger. On my vision board was a picture of the sign Who What Wear which is one of my favorite sites. They have cool content and always feature bloggers with great style.
I remember saying to my hubby, one day I’m going to be on there and recently I was featured twice. Once on their Instagram Stories and another time on their site. This may not be a big deal to some but it was pretty major to me, to the point I shed a little tear…ssshhh don’t tell anybody.
Being featured just reinstated to me that if you believe in something and work hard, it will come. If it’s not happening, it’s because you don’t want it bad enough. Now let’s be clear I’m not the type of person that walks around smiling, never having negative thoughts and constantly spreading the ‘good word’. Hell nah. But I do believe in Karma and I do believe in manifesting things you want.
I write this post in hopes that it lifts your spirits and inspires you to write some goals down and smash them. This weekend I am going to put a picture of Times Square up, Im shooting for the billboard next 🙂
Thanks for reading.
