About Me

My photo
I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

Attracting Bad vs. Good Energy

Have you ever had something bad happen to you, and then shortly thereafter, something else bad happens to you? Some people describe it as "bad things happen in 3's" or "when it rains, it pours." But what if it's us inadvertently attracting bad energy onto ourselves? What if we have somehow "attracted" bad things to ourselves, and bad things continue to happen because our mind is still focusing on the previous negative situation?

If you have ever read/seen the documentary "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, or read any book by Louise Hay, you know what I'm talking about. It's a belief that goes wayyyy back in time; the belief that like attracts like, and that any negative thinking can bring about negative (bad) energy, thus causing bad things to happen.

Not to say that bad things will never happen to you if you are a positive thinking person, but the positive energy you are attracting to yourself may improve how you react to that bad situation and recover from it.

I've been thinking about and expecting good things to happen, and they are. Most things are little things, like hitting all the green traffic lights on the way to and from work. Or maybe it's my dog not getting sick last month (and me not getting sick from the vet bill). Maybe it's cooking a new food, and it actually turns out well. Good things can happen at all levels; they can be little things or big things. And perhaps focusing on recognizing the good brings about more good things.

February has historically been a bad month for me. Over the years, it was the month I got a severe case of pneumonia, the month the hospital had to re-do a stomach biopsy because the first attempt failed, the month that I had such severe, uncontrollable shooting stomach pains that rendered me completely useless that my physcian put me on morphine (we never did find the origin; it just eventually resolved itself after about a month), the month my grandmother died suddenly, the month I got dumped by someone I really loved, and two years ago, the month I got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

Needless to say, whenever the month of February begins, I usually take a deep breath and tell myself to HOLD ON. This year, I tried a different approach. I decided to be optimistic about the month. You see, I just recently re-watched the documentary "The Secret."

Whatever it is, it seems to be working lately, because my life has been pleasantly uneventful (SUCH a blessing!).
