Control

Control

Some things are in our control, while others are not.  We control our opinion, choice, desire, aversion, and, in a word, everything of our own doing.  We don’t control our body, property, reputation, position, and, in a word, everything not of our own doing.  Even more, the things in our control are by nature free, unhindered, and unobstructed, while those not in our control are weak, slavish, can be hindered, and are not our own.” – Epictetus

Know what’s not in my control tonight?  The Internet connection is down.  My reaction?  Type this abbreviated blog post on my phone and save the big stuff for another day.
