If it’s the last thing I do with this blog, I’m going to fight and do everything I can to make sure Hillary Clinton becomes our next President. She is an experienced politician, an engaging leader. Did you see the post below about how she spontaneously started waitressing on a stop-over during her campaign? She’s currently campaigning in south Texas where she started her political career, registering Hispanic voters. I was so moved to tears with her last rally. I contributed again! She’s down to earth. Having waitressed and worked her way through school, having gone through the adversity that she’s had to put up with, I can’t imagine a better President to implement universal health care, bring our troops home, and fight for opportunities for everyone. March 4th is the big day. It’s just a few more days away. Please consider contributing or getting the word out. Tell people to look at my blog. Coming up: a post on losing my virginity.

“I’ve waited tables before,” she said.
Mrs. Clinton stopped at the restaurant, a Bob Evans in the southern Ohio town of Rio Grande, on a campaign swing in the Appalachians. Mobbed by diners and news personnel, she slipped behind the counter, where she talked with the waitresses about grits, stuffed pancakes and more.
“I might as well take a few orders,” she said, reaching for a pad and beginning to scrawl with a flourish.
This prompted one waitress to say Mrs. Clinton handled it like a pro.
Mrs. Clinton replied that she had been a waitress before, when she was much younger. An aide said later that Mrs. Clinton worked at a family restaurant in high school, when she lived in Park Ridge, Ill., and did a short stint at a Chinese restaurant when she was in law school at Yale. What is more, the aide said, she washed dishes in a restaurant-lodge in Alaska, on the midnight shift, in the summer of 1969.
I’ve written several posts now on The Secret. For those of you who are just joining me (seems like there are a lot of you out there), it’s this philosophy about asking, believing, and receiving. If you believe, it will come. Hokey, I know. But it seriously works. I’m supposed to be practicing The Secret during Lent. I haven’t done a good job of it. I need reminders every once in a while. I carry the book with me, but it’s hard to stay focused and positive. Anywho…here is a story that came through my email from the folks at The Secret.

From Lauren in California – ‘My Miracle Heart’
I received a call from a stranger about my inheritance. That’s how I found out about my father’s sudden, unexpected death. He was 53. He died from an aortic aneurism from a rare genetic heart disease called Marfan Syndrome. I went to the Chief of Cardiology at Cedars Sinai in Beverly Hills and found out that I had Marfans too.
Marfans is a genetic heart condition for which there is no cure, which often results in death from an aortic aneurism. It often strikes people early in life, usually in their 20s. I was 28.
I was devastated. I had 1st degree heart block and a heart murmur. I would need a pace maker as the heart block progressed to the 2nd degree, but the real concern was my aortic valve and the possibility of a rupture. I wouldn’t be able to have children. My entire life to this point, I had been extremely athletic in competitive sports, from volleyball to swim teams to college tennis. I was completely into nutrition and fitness. After the news, I was truly terrified. Where I used to view myself as strong and positive, I now saw myself as weak and fragile, with what I was told was a “ticking time bomb in my chest”. While I tried to stay my usual positive self, in the back of my mind I was always aware of the imminent danger and my inescapable mortality.
I lived with this fear, getting checked by my cardiologist twice a year for years, until I saw The Secret. I was due for another visit to the cardiologist right around that time. I was awestruck by the woman who cured herself from cancer and the man who healed himself from the plane crash. I decided right then and there that I was going to heal my heart. I believed it and knew it was possible.
I quickly banished any negative thoughts about my heart and refused to let them enter my mind anymore. Every night as I laid down in my bed, I placed my right hand on my heart and visualized a strong heart, and rehearsed in my mind my heart beating strong, looking and sounding the way a strong healthy heart was supposed to. Every morning when I woke up I said, “Thank you for my strong, healthy heart.” I visualized the cardiologist telling me that I was cured. I didn’t tell anyone what I was doing for fear of judgment or disbelief. I postponed my cardiologist appointment for about 4 months to give myself enough time to try this.
I went to the cardiologist, with my medical file full of past electrocardiograms and echocardiograms confirming my physical heart problems. Nervous and excited, I tried to calm myself as I got hooked up to the EKG, then got the sonogram.
The cardiologist came in with the test results completely dumbfounded. There was NO sign of a 1st degree heart block. There was NO heart murmur. There was NO expansion in my aorta. He checked and re-checked the old tests and the new one, now showing a perfectly healthy heart with no physical symptoms of Marfans! He had no explanation. I was ecstatic, but honestly, I was not surprised. It was exactly as I had envisioned. I literally RAN out of the cardiologist office across the lot to my car, feeling stronger and more alive than I ever have in my life.
I had previously bought my Mother a copy of The Secret. I called my Mom and told her exactly how I had used The Secret, and that I now have a healthy, strong, normal heart! I’ve never heard her cry so hard!
I can’t express how grateful I am for my two young adopted daughters. Knowing that I will be alive to love them and raise them is everything to me. I live a life of gratitude and giving. I am truly blessed. Thank you to Rhonda Byrne and everyone else involved in bringing about The Secret. It has literally transformed my life, and continues to bring about miracles.
May the joy be with you,
The Secret… bringing joy to billions.
Sorry, I don’t remember the year you came to our elementary school. I think it was in junior high–seventh or eighth grade. Or was it beforehand? Fifth or sixth. It was so long ago. Whichever year you came as a newcomer, I remember feeling threatened because you were smart and especially good at math.
