Imagine your life as a blank canvas. Every day you wake up and there it is, a pure white canvas hanging on the wall. The picture (your life) is going to be whatever you create. As it turns out, you are the author and artist that writes the script, draws and creates the context for your particular life. You start from nothing, a blank canvas, and make up the whole thing. It’s entirely up to you: the places you go and people you see; what you like or don’t like; what you do for a living; who you marry. You are the actor, the play, producer, director, stage hand, make-up artist and audience. The whole enchilada!
You awake each and every day to create whatever happens. It’s totally your call. If it’s going to be a great day it’s because you say so. If it’s cloudy or rainy out and you don’t like that and it ruins your day it’s because you say so. It turns out that you are the little man (or woman) behind the curtain and you have been making your life up all along. It’s pretty easy to forget that part because bitching can be fun. We all have a tendency to complain about different aspects of our lives from time to time. But if we can be in recognition of the fact that we are responsible for everything in our life including our individual experience, and that the only person worth complaining too is looking back at us in the mirror then we can see that what we want out of life is up to us alone.
We might not be in total control of all of our circumstances but we can control how we respond to them. It’s all interpretation. It’s how we see it. We were given a brain so we could think and imagine and make up whatever it is that our lives will be. Everybody wants to live well and have a great life. All we can do to have that life is to create it.
