You are an Experiment of One because you have complete control over your thoughts. Which means you have, or can have, control over your emotions and in turn control of your actions.
My girls are away this weekend and I have had a lot of time alone. Not having a baby around means that when you are alone you really notice the difference. Babies fill up a lot of time, space and emotion. They leave a lot of empty space when they’re not around.
I find being alone after such fulfilling time is not the same as being alone after a hard day at work. It’s a subtle difference. One you could miss in all the hubbub and noise of Life. But it’s a difference worth noticing.
You will notice only what you choose to focus on. There was an experiment done which makes this point in a fun way. It’s been recreated by lots of people. Here is one you can watch here.
I’m not going to tell you anything about the test as it will ruin it for you but you will get my point when you watch it.
I like thinking about my Life and myself as an experiment. It gives me licence to try things, measure them, and see if they work. Curiosity is a big part of my make up and I have always asked why. You once asked why a lot too. It might have been educated, or beaten, out of you but it’s still there. Bring it out into the light, dust it off, and get Experimenting.
