When I came across this picture of myself yesterday, I thought ‘this is one thing I do really well’. (since I somewhat berated myself in the previous post)
Stoic : a person who accepts what happens without complaining or showing emotion.
Meditations by Marcus Aurelius is essentially the journal of thoughts by an army gneral, not necessarily intended to be read or published. You can pick it up and read it from any place in the book; put it down and find it again when the timing is right. I highly recommend it. This level of wisdom should not be lost.
