“Each one of us needs what nature gives us, when nature gives it.” – Marcus Aurelius.
What happens at any given moment may not be what we want, but it is often what we need. Failure is painful, but it often comes with a lesson that we needed to learn. It isn’t that nature gives what we need. It’s that we need what nature gives us. We need to receive what comes our way with openness and equanimity. Everything you receive can be a lesson. It can be a gift to strengthen the soul. Be resourceful and be open to the thought that what you got in that moment. Love the portion you have been given and love when it gets restored to the one who gave it to you. Enjoy today, savor its lessons. Amor fati.
