Hey Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Happy Monday, Mama. And we have a theme again this week, and I’ve kind of liked having the themes, and then I don’t feel like I have to jam everything in to one episode, I can kind of stagger it out. So the theme this week is about reflections, like how everything that’s going on outside and how you see things in the world, are actually a reflection of what’s going on inside of you. So, it is getting a little woowoo; I know. But if you aren’t a super woowoo person, don’t worry, I’m not going super deep in it. But it is important to understand how we view the world is us. It’s not really reality, and Mama’s Daily Dose is… there is no reality. Let’s get moving, before we get interrupted.
We all see the world differently, because we have all had different experiences in our lives. And we all have different beliefs. And I think this is exemplified mostly in if there is some kind of crime, and the police are investigating it, they know something is up when stories are exactly the same. Because people perceive things differently. And one person may say that the person was tall, and the other person says no, they were short, they were blond, they had brown haired. But if the stories totally line up, that’s when they know something’s up. And the reason is because we don’t really see reality. We all have this TV screen, in our minds. And what we see is what’s playing on that TV screen. And everything that’s going through that is not necessarily what is going on right now. But things that have happened to us in the past, we get triggered by events, and we have these feelings associated with it. So we’re not looking at, “reality,” objectively – we’re looking at it through our TV screen, which is bringing in our feelings, our beliefs, and our past experiences. So I just think it’s super funny when people say, “oh, they’re so out of touch with reality.” You know, we’re all out of touch with reality. Because what we see is our reality, not someone else’s reality. And we’re not going to be in line and we’re not going to have the exact same story that we tell the police because we all have different perceptions and different experiences in our lives. So in the end, we’re all out of touch with reality. The only reality that you know, is your reality that is going on inside of your mind.
