When I was growing up in northern climates (read: cold!), I dreamt of one day living in a warm paradise, full of sunlight, azure skies and balmy waters. I had no specific vision of the house itself but one thing I knew for sure - there would be an abundance of cascading bougainvillea all over my garden!
You know The Secret Oprah is talking about? The philosophy that claims that "we create our own circumstances by the choices we make in life. And the choices we make are fueled by our thoughts—which means our thoughts are the most powerful things we have here on earth. So if you really want something, you have to visualize it".
Well, at least in one aspect of my life, The Secret has worked - there is bougainvillea in 4 vibrant colors (salmon, red, burgundy and purple) cascading around my warm paradise...
What's your Secret?
