I get Fridays Off
My girlfriend once asked me if I was free to go for a swim on a Friday afternoon. I said sure — I’ve got Fridays off!
Then I laughed because I’m self-employed. Being self-employed means you can make your own schedule.
I didn’t get Fridays off, I made Fridays off.
But when I look at my calendar, it appears to be something that I am at the mercy of, despite the fact that I made it up.
Our experience of life is the same. We make it up using our thinking, and then we believe our thoughts to be reality. We become subservient to our own thought-created reality.
Next time you feel at mercy of something outside you, just look inside yourself to see where that experience is coming from.
