Daily Stoic" Circumstances Don't Care

 This is a great meditation, because I need to fix this in myself.

You shouldn't give circumstances to power to rouse anger, for they don't care at all.

Marcus Aurelius

I look at this as a reminder. A reminder to me that losing it over the TV news, or next outrage, is not a useful emotion. They can be used as motivators, but not rulers of our actions.


PS - I now avoid most of the news. Thank goodness for Tivo's scan feature!
