My daughter is an amazing person especially for a six year old. She is always coming up with entrepreneurial ventures and brilliantly off the wall ideas. Her imagination is amazing and she has created her own world in many ways. Most recently she has asked to have her room repainted to look like “Beezy World” (Beezy is my wife’s nickname for her). The clouds are lower in Beezy World and the blue sky is on top. She has also developed not just one but several languages for Beezy World including Beezy Spanish and Beezy Chinese. It is pretty obvious that she carries this world with her on a daily basis.
Although the creation of a personal world may seem like a childish thing to do, we all do it on some level. We all live in our own version of the world. There are some constants and overlapping but in many ways, we carry our own world along with us. In a very Obi-Wan sense, our world is dependent upon our point of view. For some of us we are semi-passive and the world happens to us. While for others of us, we are active. The world is not what happens to us but rather our influence on our surroundings. So the world is not as concrete as it may seem but is more the result of the ingredients that we add to it.
So the question becomes do you like the world that you carry around with you? Is your Beezy World the one that you want painted in your room? Or is it time to make a change? Since you are the creator of this world, make it what you want it to be!
