"You create your own reality."
I've been hearing this saying pretty often lately - it's even been acronym-ed - YCYOR. I'll never deny the fact that events outside of our control shape the paths our lives take. However; I have also seen firsthand the power that people have to create or shape their own existence - that frame through which they view everything. What stories, thoughts and beliefs have you created? How do these creations shape the way you view yourself, this world or this life? Certainly, these frames were created for reasons that make sense - but are they working for you? Are they working to inject meaning and purpose into your life? Are they working to cultivate a sense of vitality and presence? If not, could it be as simple as beginning to create something else?
