Any Given Present…

“Don’t let your imagination be crushed by life as a whole.

Don’t try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen.

Stick with the situation at hand, and ask, ‘Why is this so unbearable? Why can’t I endure it?’ You’ll be embarrassed to answer.

Then remind yourself that past and future have no power over you.

Only the present – and even that can be minimized.

Just mark off its limits.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
