Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you are able to open yourself up to receive. When you get to the point that you are saying “Enough is Enough” that is when you start to open your mind up to new things.

Today I have a special post for you.
It’s my story of how I had to hit my rock bottom before I was able to open myself up to receive. Maybe your story is similar to mine. Maybe not. But this is how I got started learning about all the woo-woo stuff and opening my mind up to all the possibilities & opportunities that I never knew was possible for me!
So grab a cuppa. And go back in time with me as I tell you how hitting rock bottom was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. And how I have learned to change my mindset to change the person that I had become.
Here’s a short video from me to YOU! I hope you like it! 😉
What Inspired Me To Write This Post?
I work all the time. Most weeks I work 6 days a week. But what’s good about my job ( I am a factory worker btw. I work 2nd shift) is that we can listen to music, podcasts, whatever we want while we work. I work at a machine & I always bring my speaker with me to work so that I don’t get bored. I like my job but it does get monotonous doing the same thing over & over for 8 hrs a day. lol.
So, while I’m at work I listen to podcasts.
All kinds of different podcasts that help me keep my mindset positive. And teach me things that I don’t already know.
Lot’s of Law of Attraction podcasts, woo-woo stuff, & business podcasts for me! lol
Some of my favorite podcasts to listen to:
- The Manifestation Babe Podcast w/Kathrin Zenkina
- The Mind Your Business Podcast w/James Wedmore
- The Mommy Millionaire w/Cayla Craft
- Rise Podcast w/Rachel Hollis
While listening to a podcast the other day my mind started drifting off.
And I started thinking about the time when I really hit rock bottom. When I said to myself enough was enough. (Actually, I probably yelled that because I was pretty upset at the time.)
But anyway, while thinking about that time in my life, I suddenly got a download (for me a download is an inspired thought that came from God) that told me that that time in my life was when I finally opened myself up to receive!!!
It hit me like a lightning bolt! I sat up straight in my chair. And I wrote it down as fast as I could in my memo pad so that I wouldn’t forget to tell you guys about it!
YES!!!! This made perfect sense to me..
I had closed myself off to other ways of thinking during this time of my life. Because after I hit my rock bottom that was the thing that pushed me to start making some changes in my life!!!
I know if you have ever been to this blog that you have probably already heard this story. I have it on the home page of my blog too.
Because I think it’s important for people to see that they can change their circumstances no matter what is going on in their life. And I know that life can get hard sometimes. But it’s all a part of the ebb & flow of life. It’s not just going to be good times all the time. The hard time are there for us to learn and grow from.
My rock bottom was when I was living by myself after my bf of 6 years had died.
I was trying to pay all the bills with a minimum wage job! There was no way. At the time over-drafting my bank account had become normal for me. I mean that’s bad ya know? I would over-draft to pay bills then the bank would sock it to me. And the cycle just kept repeating itself.
Well one day, I went to try to over-draft so that I could get my Rx out of the pharmacy.
ATM wouldn’t let me get the money out! OMG! What was I gonna do?
I was so mad, upset, crying, banging my fist on the steering wheel!
After I borrowed the money off of a friend to get my meds out. I got back home that day.
And I decided right then and there that I was going to make some changes in my life!
I was done! I was tired. I was sick & tired of living that way. And I knew there had to be more to life than this.. And guess what???? There totally was!
And there is for you too.. No matter what is going on in your life right now. If you are in a scarcity mindset. Tired of living the way you are living. You can change things!
The only thing that is stopping you from living the life of your dreams is your mindset!
I had to un-learn so many things. I had been telling myself the same ole story on autopilot for years! And I’m talking years!!! I am now 45 years old. Do you know how many years of scarcity & lack stories that I have been living with and believing??? So much stuff to undo. But it was possible. And I am living proof of that! And I know that if I can do it, you can too!!!
So, maybe you are at a point in your life where you are just tired of it all.
- Tired of the struggle.
- Tired of just getting by.
- On the brink of saying enough is enough of living this way???
- Are you sick of your circumstances & feel that there has to be more to life than this????
Well, that was exactly how I felt at that time in my life.
And this is what I had to do in order to change everything! And YOU can too!
I started researching successful people. I followed them online. I listened to their stories. My favorite people to follow are people that have gone from nothing to living the life of their dreams! Because that takes willpower. That takes motivation. And I wanted to learn how they did it? What changes did they have to make in their life to be able to live the life they are living now????
I was like a sponge. I soaked up everything.
That was when I first discovered the Law of Attraction & Manifesting.
I discovered positive self-talk & affirmations.
I started making G-R-A-T-I-T-U-D-E a daily habit!!! Talk about flipping the switch on your mindset!
Yes, I was very skeptical of all this when I first started. But I told myself that what I have been doing isn’t working, so why not try this way of thinking??? What the hell do I have to lose?? Not a damn thing..
You have to ask yourself: Is what I’ve been doing all this time working? Or is it keeping me stuck? Am I moving in the direction that I want to go? If not, then it’s time to try a new way of thinking!!
So off I went researching & learning, joining groups of other like-minded people.
Even if you are an introvert like me and don’t like to necessarily be around a lot of other people..
There are ways around this. You can talk to people online. Join groups & communities. Whatever you have to do in order to make your life better, you do it!
There are so many introverts that are killing it in business online right now! I mean killing it. That is what inspires me. Seeing other people that are like me absolutely living the life of their dreams inspires me to keep pushing thru!
Keep pushing thru that negative self-talk. That monkey mind that tries to keep you safe. Don’t listen to it!
That is just your flight or fight mode.
We are way past survival mode in this day and age. It is time to rise up and become the person that has been inside of you all this time!
You can do it.. We can do it!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I just wanted to stop for a minute and tell you about the download that I had while working the other day.
Isn’t it funny how God gives us the information that we need at just the right time!
I love it! And I love you! I hope you have an awesome & amazing day wherever you are in the world!
