The Law of Attraction

The day after I got laid off, I woke up and came into the living room to find that my sweet roomie had left me a book to read with a cute little note telling me to enjoy my day off. The book was The Secret. Have ya'll read it?

I haven't made it through the whole book, but the basic premise is the Law of Attraction. Basically, whatever dominates your thoughts is what you will get.

Fact: About 6 weeks before the actual laying off, I started making jokes that I wished they would just lay me off so I could just up and move to San Diego. I actually even went to my bosses and asked them if my job was safe, because I was sensing that change was in the air. I was promised that I would be kept in the loop, which ended up being a lie, but that is a WHOLE DIFFERENT POST. Point being? My friend Holly and I started doing all this wishful thinking and planning our move. It dominated my thoughts until it happened. The laying off, that is.

Fact: Big Texticles texted his way into my life a few days ago. I have told that story countless times now. I blogged it. I had beers and made fun of his text happiness with friends. I belabored over how can a man think it's appropriate to just text someone instead of call???

So what happens last night? I get ANOTHER text. Asking me out. From ANOTHER man whom I have never spoken to on the phone. Seriously.

OK, so I know when one door opens, another closes, and when life kicks you in the ass, make sure it kicks you forward and all. How long does the door get to hit my ass on the way out? My ass is tired, and sore from the kicking.

Oh, and what am I doing right now? I'm in my robe, towel on my wet hair, consciously standing up Big Texticles. I think. I mean we said we could maybe reschedule for Saturday. but left it kind of open....

I don't think that's doing anything good for my karma.

I haven't read The Secret but I watched it online a while back. It sounds like a great idea but since I haven't attempted to put it into practice I can't really say much about it.

Sorry life has been kicking you lately.

I've been thinking about packing up and moving from Atlanta for MANY YEARS now and still haven't done it. I don't know what keeps holding me back. I think it's laziness to be quite honest.

Hang in there!

I haven't seen/read The Secret yet. I have meant to for awhile...which may say something about what I attract - procrastinators?

I think the concept is quite accurate. Your focus becomes reality. Although random events don't count to me...you can only attract things that you are conscious of, working towards. I have no idea if that fits into the context of The Secret, but that is my rambling minute, FWIW.
