I have always been an optimist - even when, and sometimes especially when, things were painful or difficult. I always believed that everything happened for a reason and that one day I would have a wonderful life and live happily ever after. It might seem like a fairy tale but it was just what a sad and frightened young girl had to believe to survive.
For many years, I kept a little note in my wallet that said "Something wonderful is about to happen". Not only was it a great reminder for me to focus on the positive but I truly believed it. My entire life has been an incredible transformation - year by year, event by event so I knew anything was possible.
This week as I emptied out my wallet, once again I opened that precious little scrap of paper. This time something was different - a shift has occurred, I felt a surge of energy wash over me that was pure joy. Quickly I grabbed a pen and crossed off the old message and in it's place wrote "Something wonderful has already happened"!
