My best friends work at a paper company together.
I visit them at their office all the time.
You’d think the regional office of a paper company would be boring.
But it’s one of my favorite places on the planet.
Once, as a practical joke, Jim put all of Dwight’s office supplies in Jello.
It was hilarious.
Another time, Michael burned his foot on a George Foreman grill that he keeps by his bed so he can wake up to the smell of bacon.
It was also hilarious.
Jim and Pam fell in love there.
So did Michael and Carol.
And Michael and Jan.
And Michael and Holly.
I was there for all of it.
They are some of my favorite friends.
And yet, they are fictional characters who don’t exist.
So how is it that I cry everytime I watch the finale, without fail?
These people aren’t real, none of it ever happened, and even if it did, I wasn’t actually a part of it.
So why do I care?
Why am I so sad when it’s over?
Because our thoughts are what create our feelings.
This includes our feelings about other people.
Relationships don’t actually exist, except in our minds.
The love we have for our best friend, the closeness we feel to our husband, the emptiness we feel when someone passes away…
All of these feelings are a result of our thoughts about them.
This is how it’s possible for a wife to feel love for and loved by her husband, and to think that they have a strong, committed relationship…
Only to find out that he has a second family in another city.
She chose to think about her relationship in a certain way-and those thoughts created her reality.
We are all creating our reality in the same way…
Simply by the thoughts we have about it.
This is great news.
This means you can have whatever kind of relationship you want!!
It all begins with a thought!
