The Law Of Attraction: Write Out Your Future.

Updated on December 20, 2010

My influence for a lot of things in life is my grandmother. I have written about her before, and probably will write about her again. As I was cleaning out a few drawers to my armoire I noticed a folded up note tucked back behind my tank tops and bikinis. When I opened it I realized it was a list I made shortly after I got married. My grandmother had once shared with me about how when she was young she had written out a list of things she wanted in a man. She wrote out every single detail in which she wanted, and got exactly what she asked for. I suppose my list was quite similar, however it was what I wanted out of the future of my marriage. As I read through the note I sat there in awe, staring into the things in which I had outlined. Each and everyone of them was actually true, and I couldn't believe it. Even things that I wrote down sarcastically. My list was as follows:

1. I want my husband to be kind, faithful, and understanding.

Michael is a blessing, really. We both know the dark inner depths of each other. We have no secrets. He is the most understanding and amazing man I have ever met. Faithful, most definitely. Some would say that his kindness is because we've only been together for three yeas. However, I think its just because I am his queen. He puts me above everything, and always looks out for my happiness.

2.  I don't need to be rich I just want enough money to live comfortably.

Another true statement. I don't believe money brings anything but problems in most cases. Of course I have that strange fantasy in my head of being able to buy anything I'd like. However, I don't think that money brings happiness. I think it causes a distortion of reality. I of course want enough to survive and be happy. However, I also have that mystical thought inside my brain of running into the forest and living off the land. I just don't feel the need to surround myself with material possessions.

3. I want to own a house before I am 25

Again, another true one. We bought the house we're living in now in 2008. Its nothing too special, but its home. Its a little two bedroom in Clarksville, Tennessee. I am from a small town, so its kind of strange for me to be living smack dab in the city. Of course its not a huge city or anything, but it is the 3rd biggest in Tennessee. I am 22 (23 in March), and I got my wish of owning a house before I turned 25.

4. I want a black Jaguar

This ones a funny story. Before I married my husband I jokingly told him that I would marry him if he promised to buy me a jaguar one day. Well, surprise surprise, one day he came home with some interesting news. There was a 2002 Jaguar Xtype that he had seen on his way from work, and he wanted to get it. At first, I told him he was absolutely insane. It definitely wasn't cheap by any means. But then he reminded me of the promise he made to me, and I couldn't really say no.

5.  I want to do what I love, and love what I do.

I haven't "worked" in over two years now. When I say "worked" I mean I haven't left the house to work. I am house wife by day, and I freelance in my spare time. I can honestly say that I love taking care of someone. Also though, I love being able to write. Writing has been this huge part of my life ever since I was young. I really believe that I formulate sentences better in writing then if I were to say them outloud. I started off writing on "TeenOpenDiary" when I was around 12 or so. This transferred to writing on live journal, and then to freelance. Even though I don't keep my own personal journal anymore, it is nice to dabble in doing for a living. I am not working on launching my first website, which I am stoked about. However, I was much better at html in my youth. We'll see how this all pans out.

This may turned from a hub about the law of attraction to something much more personal than that. But what I am trying to get to, is that you create your own destiny. The things you want manifest into reality. I mean come on, I even got my dream car! Never in a million years did I think I'd actually have a jaguar sitting in my drive way. So, why don't you give it a try? You can make your list short, you can make your list long and detailed. After you're done with it, put it somewhere. Don't go back to it and routinely check, you need to forget about it all together. In an essence its just like "planting a seed". You're planting thoughts somewhere, to manifest into reality. I am not the spiritual type at all, I am agnostic. However, I do believe there is something out there causing things to happen the way they do. These kind of things should really be taken advantage of.

      Thank you :) See, the jaguar was always my dream car. However, I was completely sarcastic when I put it on the list. I really never thought I'd get it, it wasn't something essential to my well being. Funny though that I did actually get it.

      I like your list. The only one I would change, for myself would be #4. For me I don't care what kind of car I have as long as it gets me where I need to go. The fact htat we all need different things makes the world go round. I enjoyed reading your writing. You have a entertaining style of writing. Voted up and beautiful.
