Before The Geeky Taoist and before Buff Beads there was me and a little blog called Advice Over Pie, where I spent hours pouring out my soul into posts about my anxieties and being sick with Ulcerative Colitis. It got very few views, but the writing was therapeutic nonetheless.
In 2012, I wrote a post about stumbling upon The Secret and how it had opened my eyes to a revolutionary new way of thinking. I shared my story on The Secret’s forum and last year I received an email stating that my story was being considered, out of 10 years worth of stories submitted, to be included in a book celebrating the 10 year anniversary of The Secret. I was flattered, but thought nothing more of it.
Yesterday I received my autographed copy of How The Secret Changed My Life with my story, Beautiful Healing, right smack dab in the middle of the book on page 125!
Sooo…that pretty much makes me a published author, yo!
My story is not embellished. They are my words. (Edited for grammar and spelling, thank Eru.) Listening to the audio book of The Secret put me on a new path. Away from the self-depreciating and destructive thought patterns, and towards the path to healing and self-love. Whether you’re into this stuff or not, I promise you that I would not be where I am now had I not read The Secret. It was the guidepost that said, “Hey, you’ve been right all along! Come this way!” And for that I am eternally grateful.
How The Secret Changed My Life is out today in hardcover and for Kindle!
