If I was obsessed with one area of my life that I was unhappy about, and gave it more time than the other nine ones, I wouldn't have been happy, would I?
The thing is, I was seemingly doing everything right according to the LoA point of view in this thread. I wasn't completely satisfied with everything in my life, but I was really, really happy, in a way that rose above any dissatisfaction. I went around confidently sure that everything was going to work out, and eventually I was paying my bills with credit cards.
I like to retell the story of 'manifesting' my cat Scotty, 'cause it surprised me that I could describe various features of a cat I would like to have and a week later have somebody call and offer me this fantasy cat I had made up.
At the time this happened, I was basically miserable and stressed. My beloved cat had died three weeks before and I was traumatized over that, plus my financial situation was dire. But instead of 'attracting' more misery and stress, I 'attracted' something that would help make things better.
(I use quotes because I don't really buy into the whole LoA thing.)
