“…Nothing will happen to me which is not conformable to the nature of the universe…” -Marcus Aurelius
I find it comforting to remember that no matter what the universe throws at me it’s nothing new. All things conform to the laws of nature and my experiences are no different than anyone else’s. In this way, it’s unreasonable for me to fear uncertainty in this life. Everything is to be expected.
So, rather than rage against hardship and misfortune, we can choose to embrace our paths and accept the difficulties placed in front of us for what they are—natural occurrences—just a thunderstorm in our lives.
All storms pass. All colors fade. All we have to do is learn to accept it’s just another day.
