Passive observer, or active participant?


It’s so easy to start thinking of yourself as a passive observer in your own life. To feel like you are just drifting along, having things happen to you.

That seems okay as long as it makes you happy. But if it doesn’t, you have the surprising capacity to change things. Don’t believe the illusion. You’re an active participant in your life. You have agency and initiative and experience.

If you want things to be different, you can make it happen. Get up and start.
