I’m not what you would consider a positive person. I often don’t look on the bright side of things, and angry is pretty much my default setting. However yesterday, I discovered the power of positive thinking.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m planning to move out of home. For the last two weeks, I have been applying for houses. About ten or eleven in total. The first one I looked at was a mess. Cupboard door hanging off, dingy kitchen, unkempt and untidy. I didn’t bother with an application. The second house I looked at was…perfect. As soon as I saw it on the website, I fell in love.
When I went to inspect the house, I fell more in love. It’s teeny tiny, and utterly adorable. Two bedrooms, a little ensuite, an open plan kitchen/lounge area and no grass to mow; it’s perfect for little old me. I submitted an application the next day, and eagerly awaited a phone call.
The thing is, from the moment I set foot inside the house, I knew it was meant to be mine. Something about it felt right to me, and I spent the next week waiting for the call that I knew was going to come. How could it not? The house felt right to me and I felt positive that I was going to get it. The more I thought about it, the more I became convinced. Actually, I got a little obsessed, and drove past it at every opportunity.
I told people the house was going to be mine. I told myself the house was going to be mine. I had a freakin’ dream that it was going to be mine. The more I put it out there, the more it felt true. And, after a week of waiting half anxiously and half confidently, yesterday I got a phone call, and the cheerful real estate agent on the other end of the line was genuinely happy to tell me that I had (of course) gotten the house. Yay! So in the last month I made the decision to move, applied for houses and got approved. All that is left to do now is wait for the current tenant to move, and then I’ll get to live in the literal house of my dreams!
When it comes to ‘new age’ beliefs, there’s a lot of crap floating around, but there are a few I hold in high stead. Regularly cleanse negative energies from your home and person. A healthy body helps maintain a healthy mind. And, after this week, my new favourite is trust the power of positive thinking. As my best friend often tells me, the universe always provides.
