"If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment." – Marcus Aurelius
This is a great way to look at the stresses and worries of our lives.
All too often we give external forces power over our lives.
We let our lives seep away with worry and stress over events and circumstances external to our control.
Our power lies in what we choose to focus on.
Our days turn on what we choose to let dominate our thoughts.
What came to mind when you first read the quote?
What have you given power that you should revoke?
Let go of whatever it is. Let positivity, hope and faith rule your thoughts today.
Make it a great day.
