Happy best day of the week!
I’m not a man of religion, however there’s no denying wisdom can be found in all practices.
I recently came across a bible verse that’s really stuck with me, hopefully it resonates as powerfully for you.
Now let’s get to it; Here’s 1 Thought, 1 Quote, and 1 Question for the week…
1 Thought From Me
Comparison is the root of all unhappiness and inadequacy.
It’s sobering to recognize we all must endure a series of vastly different peaks and valleys in life to arrive.
Everyone is on a journey to meet themselves.
1 Quote From Another
The most important contribution to peace of mind is never to do wrong. Those who lack self-control lead disturbed and tumultuous lives; their crimes are balanced by their fears, and they are never at ease. For they tremble after the deed, and they are embarrassed; their consciences do not allow them to busy themselves with other matters, and continually compel them to give an answer. Whoever expects punishment, receives it, but whoever deserves it, expects it. Where there is an evil conscience something may bring safety, but nothing can bring ease; for a man imagines that, even if he is not under arrest, he may soon be arrested. His sleep is troubled; when he speaks of another man’s crime, he reflects upon his own, which seems to him not sufficiently blotted out, not sufficiently hidden from view. A wrongdoer sometimes has the luck to escape notice but never the assurance thereof. Farewell.
―Seneca, Moral Letters to Lucilius, 105.7-8
1 Question For You
What blindspot does comparison reveal about your deepest inadequacy?
