The Secret, The Salon, & My Friend’s Dilemma

the_secretI am a big fan of The Secret. I love the tenets presented. The main thing that I love is how the Masters explain that The Law of Attraction is just that- a law. It’s not based on your belief system. You don’t have to be Jewish, or a Christian, or a Buddhist, etc., to make it work. It works if you believe it and use it.

Now, you may asks yourself what does any of this have to do with the salon? Well, I’ll tell you.

Yesterday, almost as soon as I went under the dryer in the salon, there were power outtages in Los Angeles; particularly along the Crenshaw Corridor. Since there was no electricity, this presented quite a problem. How was my beautician going to finish my hair. Someone suggested that she call DWP to see how much time we were looking at. Well, the estimate they gave us was either 20 minutes of 4-6 hours. Are you kidding? That is such a great disparity?

Being ever hopeful and having faith in DWP I decided to wait. 10 minutes turned into 20 minutes  into 30 minutes into one hour. I finally decided that DWP was slacking on their job, and I didn’t have time to waste waiting for them to get things together. So, after I’d gotten into my car and prepared to take off, I notice that Sheila, one of the customers from the salon, is flagging me down. So I roll my window down.

“The power came on as soon as you left,” she said. Needless to say, I parked the car and went back into the salon.

Yeah, yeah, yeah! I know you’re asking yourself what this has to do with my The Secret and my friend’s dilemma. Well, I’m going to tell you after I tell you about my friend’s dilemma.

Okay, so here it goes: I was speaking with my friend this afternoon. She was very discouraged and wanted to give up on something she’d been working on. That’s when I related the story of the salon yesterday after I explained how The Secret works. Rhonda Byrnes explained in The Secret that people often give up and think that it doesn’t work, when it does. The problem is one that I’m sure many people have experienced at some point in time. You try to hold on. You do your best; you’re a real trooper. However, you decide that enough is enough and that you simply cannot believe anymore. So you give up. Some time later on, you find out, had you held on a little longer, you would have gotten what you wanted.

That’s how it was for my friend. I told her that it’s always darkest right before the dawn. I didn’t fully understand that saying until I stayed up overnight one time and saw for myself that it truly is darkest right before dawn.

“Don’t give up,” I said. Just hold on a little longer. It will be okay.

“You know what, you’re right. Thanks for the pep talk. I will keep this in mind,” she gratefully said.

I wrote all that to say, “DON’T GIVE UP!” It is always darkest before the dawn. Even though it might not seem like it, your deliverance is at hand. Just hold on. Everything will work out. Sometimes it may not work out the way you want, but it will work out.
