Number 364–What I Have Learned…

Quotes and Notes #364, November 3

“You have power over your mind—not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”—Marcus Aurelius, “Meditations”—

If I have found a message through the course of writing 364 of these articles, it is this.

  •           You have power over your mind.
  •           You can control your attitude.
  •           You can find your own happiness.
  •           You can be you—it matters not what others think.
  •           You have great value.

When I go to the grocery store these days and smile at a perfect stranger, they seem to be delighted and they always return the gesture.

The final thing I found—just lately—is the saying, “You are the only you in the world.” I guess I always knew that but didn’t recognize it.
Everything is going to be all right.

John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
