Thought for the day, Tuesday 11th January

“Know first who you are and what you are capable of…
We are always learning, always growing. It is right to accept challenges. This is when we progress to the next level of intellectual, physical, or moral development. Still, do not deceive yourself: if you try to be something or someone you are not, you belittle your true self and end up not developing in those areas that you would have excelled in quite naturally. Within the divine order we each have our own special calling. Listen to yours, and follow it faithfully.”

Epictetus (55 – 135 CE), Greek Stoic philosopher
