2017. The year that I moved to Doncaster, a large town in South Yorkshire, England. I have a family friend there. I know both of them since I have studied nursing back in 2000.

I’ve been to Doncaster once to visit them. They were telling me how cheap life is there and the rent is very cheap. I could not believe the difference of rent price from London compared to Doncaster. And it really is.

So, after seven years in London, working hard to pay rent and bills and public transport, me and my husband have decided to move to Doncaster.

When I told my family back home that we are moving, and hoping for a better life- I was hoping for a better job, my step mother started talking to me about how the universe is working for us, and because I worked so hard and I wanted so much a house and blah, blah, blah

” The Universe is giving back to me what I deserve.”

Yeah, sure!

I was not even listening carefully to all of this.

But I remember when she told me to find this book: The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Apparently, this book will explain to me about the Universe and how we can think positively and how I could get a better life just by thinking of this with all my power.

I was just hearing but not listening.

Then one day, when I was working at Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, I went for my break to the canteen and I’ve seen lots of books on the table. One of the books was The Secret. It was the only book that I’ve seen on the table. From all those books; and the table was full of books.

I asked somebody what is with all these books and I was told to help myself if I want any of them.

So, I got The Secret.

Finally, I got The Secret.

I’ve read a few lines while I was eating and that’s all. I brought it home and left it somewhere, there.

The job at the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust was worse than I could ever get (that I was thinking at that time): looking after 12 or more patients, HCAs were not trained to do minimal observations for the patients.

I was depressed!

I am not driving, public transport was not great to get from Doncaster to Rotherham, so I was depending on my husband to drop me off and pick me up to and from work.

Depressed! That’s the word!

I had no one to talk to. Every time I was trying to speak with my sister in law, she was advising me to think positively, and to believe that my life is wonderful, and I have everything, and the Universe is working for me….

Really? The Universe again? Working for me?

All my life I worked hard to get something and now, suddenly, the Universe is working for me!!!!!!!!!!

I managed to buy a house in the United Kingdom, and that was from my work! Not because the Universe worked for me!!!

That’s how I was thinking at that time.

Anyway, our life in Doncaster was not OK!

Back to London

So, me and my husband decided to come back to London- a city where all the dreams come true.

I was traveling about an hour and a half to go to work, I had no kitchen (the house we moved in needed all the refurbishment you could ever think of), but I was happy. I was back in London.

And my son was the happiest child. He was back to London, where all the “good museums were, and good schools and everything.”

So, back to my journey to work!

There was no signal underground and everybody was playing on the phones. I found it depressing.


Reading on the train

And I’ve decided to read on the train. The only book I had at home was The Secret. I do not know why I did not throw away that book when I decluttered the house. I was laughing thinking that I will probably read someday how the Universe is working for me!

The book became more and more captivated; however, I had no time to read at home, but I was happy to go to work knowing that I can read a bit more from The Secret.

And I thought that there is nothing wrong with seeing myself on a holiday next year. I want a holiday and I really need one. Getting money from somewhere? HMMMM… I doubt it; but I can not lose anything. It's nice to dream… Sometimes…

My days at work are not as great as I was hoping. I wanted to change my job. But I have bills and a mortgage to pay; so, I can’t change it just like this. I wanted a “normal job” like my son keeps telling me “Why can’t you have a normal job? Work from Monday to Friday, 9 to 5?” Because I’m a nurse! That’ s all I know. To be a nurse!

The day I’ve decided to change my life!

After a Saturday at work when I was told off by the same nurse in charge (I work with an agency and this does not make my life easier in some wards) I have decided to cancel my Sunday. I called in sick in the morning. I was sick of my job. I was depressed and I wanted to change something. I stayed home and I have decided to watch a movie. So, I found The Secret. I was telling my husband about this movie and I was surprised to find out that he saw the movie a long time ago! Without me!


And then I’ve decided to change my life!

I’ve remembered that I had received an email about a “normal job” and I was keen to try. I called on Monday, few times and nobody answered; I couldn’t even leave a voice message. And I doubted again about this Universe. I called the agency and I told them that I want shifts in a different hospital. I do not want to work in St. George’s Hospital for a period. At least I get a break.

But I was still thinking of that “normal job;” I’ve called again and Surprise! Somebody answered the phone. Disappointed; there are no jobs for people who don’t have a driving licence. So I have decided to start my own blog. To work for myself.




At the end, The Universe does work for me!

And all of these because I have read this book, The Secret, and I have decided to believe it!

That is how I have decided to change my life! That is how you can change your life!

It's’ nothing wrong in believing in a better life! Let the Universe work for you!
