At lunch on the next day the guy was even louder about how much he disliked peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. His coworkers rolled their eyes, but then just let it slide.*
Finally though after a few days of hearing his complaining one of his co-workers spoke up, “Why don’t you just get your wife to make you a meat and cheese or tuna sandwich?” That’s when the man looked up with a puzzled look on his face and said, “My wife? I don’t have a wife. I made this myself.”
Is it time to take an evaluation of things that you complain about. Is it your business, or lack of it, your personal relationships, or your health? Are they actually a PBJ sandwich that you have made yourself? Our choices create our experience. We know the truth, “what we sow we reap.“ Are we living a life of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches — of our own making?
It may take some serious reflection to discover the real truth of this. Because the decisions that are creating our life are often unconscious decisions instead of conscious ones. It’s what we don’t know that trips us up or prevents us from experiencing the life we say that we want.
