The Law of Attraction

I have become quite obsessed with the Law of Attraction. A little more than a year ago I purchased the book The Secret. I bought it as I buy many books hoping I’ll find the time to read them. I finally sat down and read the darn thing and the book made me excited. So excited that I practically fell asleep in it.

Unfortunately, the next day I woke up and forgot all I had just read. The dread of having to get up for work and go into a place I didn’t really want to be made me sad and instead of being strong and thinking about working at the place of my dreams, I focused on how awful my current situation was.

Needless to say, my situation got worse. Then, my husband got laid off and dreams and hopes went out the window.

A few months ago I picked The Secret back up. I was ready to try this again. I even bought the Chicken Soup for the Soul-Living Your Dreams at a thrift store and began making visualization cards.

So far my miracles have finally started coming. Today my husband got hired. I don’t work at that awful place I did a year ago and things are looking up. Everyday a new miracle comes into my life. So, I want to blog about miracles, gratitude, getting what you wish for and so much more.

Today I begin my acceptance of all of my miracles. I’m receiving them as I type this. I can feel the winds changing and all of my dreams coming true. Let’s go on the journey together. What do you wish for?

Full Disclosure Policy for Famous Ashley Grant

So…Apparently as I’m reading people’s blogs I am finding that there is a rule about Full Disclosure. In order to make sure I am not harassed at a later date after I become hugely famous online for being such an amazing blogger-let’s get the Full Disclosure out of the way!

The Following FTC Disclosure holds true for all of my blogs and websites including but not limited to:

The Famous Ashley Grant and Famous Ashley Grant 2.0

Living the Secret

First, My Amazon Associates Disclosure:

Famous Ashley Grant is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, audible.com, and any other website that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases, at no additional cost to you.

And now, for the rest of my disclosure – The Full Monty

This blog and the other blogs I’m working on are not primarily financially driven, but I hope that they lead me to becoming a millionaire. How’s that for honesty? I began blogging in 2008 for several reasons- to have a place to write how I feel, to show people where to find my articles and links to photographs I have taken, to voice reactions and opinions (goes back to how I feel), to teach people things and hopefully learn things too and to establish a little more credibility for myself as a journalist.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

First, the obvious: I am a content creator. Essentially I will write and/or take pictures for anyone that will pay me and if they don’t pay me I get some form of compensation whether it be in advertising and promotion, food, products or services.

Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal.

Disclaimers all over the place.

This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.

To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
