Unfortunately reality has nothing to do with what you would like to believe.
Someone said that to me recently.
What I have come to know is this: OUR REALITY IS COMPLETELY ABOUT WHAT WE BELIEVE.
To some, autism is a tragedy. To me, it has been a truly beautiful gift. So the opposite of tragic.
Same situation, differing beliefs. I'm much happier believing the latter and therefore my REALITY is much different.
Knowing that I have complete control over my reality is empowering! I can believe whatever I want in any given situation. Beliefs or so powerful, they can make or break you. And here is the kicker...no matter what I believe, I will suddenly find all sorts of evidence to support it. So why not choose an incredible set of beliefs so that I can have an INCREDIBLE REALITY?!?!?
So, FORTUNATELY, reality has EVERYTHING to do with what you would like to believe. EVERYTHING!
