Sorry if I'm off topic here as I've only read a short bit of this thread, what understand of LOA and my own life's ups and downs is that trusting in our higher self and things will get better, is a major factor,well has been for me anyhow, here's an example of me making things worse by trying to control everything,,,,,,
I emigrated again to australia, this time with very little money and me and my hubby having no job to come to, we have two daughters but took the plunge anyway. We were almost near the end of the money we had and still no job in sight, we applied for anything and everything to no avail, I was crying daily and really stressing out,then one day at a car boot sale I picked up the book you can heal your life,I'd heard of it but never bothered with it, but for some reason I read that book cover to cover then again. It did heal me because I remember driving back from dropping my daughter off at school, coming back I just decided to let all the worry and stress go, I said to myself I will be ok, then a week later I got a job.
Detachment,trust and love has helped me at these life challenging times
