Morning Text for Reflection:
Of things some are in our power, and others are not. In our power are opinion, movement toward a thing, desire, aversion; and in a word, whatever are our own acts: not in our power are the body, property, reputation, offices and in a word, whatever are not our own acts. (Epictetus, Handbook 1)

When you wake up each morning, take a few moments to compose yourself and then patiently rehearse the day ahead, planning how you can make yourself a better person, while also accepting that some things lie beyond your control.*
*Stoic Week 2014 Handbook
