Here we are, all sharing life at the same time, but with our own reality. Life is made up of experiences, with your reality of life created as a construct of those experiences. Your mental outlook may be optimistic and hopeful; sad and regretful; or spiteful and angry. Emotions will manifest themselves in your construct which creates and alters your reality. If the two of us have similar constructs, we will be led to similar realities.
We can’t always choose life experiences, but we do have the ability to choose our emotional outlook. Change your emotional outlook, and you can alter your reality – positively, neutrally, or negatively.
