Daily Touch of Inspirations

June 18th: Prepared and active

Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living

Let Fate find us prepared and active. Here is the great soul —the one who surrenders to Fate. The opposite is the weak and degenerate one, who struggles with and has a poor regard for the order of the world, and seeks to correct the faults of the gods rather than their own. —Seneca, Moral Letters, 107.12


Whatever happens today, let if find us prepared and active: ready for problems, ready for difficulties, ready for people to behave in disappointing or confusing ways, ready to accept and make it work for us. Let's not wish we could turn back time or remake the universe according to our preference. Not when it would be far better and far easier to remake ourselves.
