Face the truth. The reality.
Here’s 1 Thought, 1 Quote, and 1 Question for the week…
1 Thought From Me
Our definition of desirable and undesirable, positive and negative, all originate because we’ve defined the entire scope of our inner experiences based upon our outer circumstances.
A confident person doesn’t fear change as an admission of inferiority.
1 Quote From Another
We are born to a comfortable position enough, if we do not afterwards lose it: the aim of Nature has been to enable us to live well without needing a vast apparatus to enable us to do so: every man is able by himself to make himself happy. External circumstances have very little importance either for good or for evil: the wise man is neither elated by prosperity nor depressed by adversity; for he has always endeavoured to depend chiefly upon himself and to derive all his joys from himself. Do I, then, call myself a wise man? far from it: for were I able to profess myself wise, I should not only say that I was not unhappy, but should avow myself to be the most fortunate of men, and to be raised almost to the level of a god.
― Seneca, Of Consolation: to Helvia, 5
