“To what service is my soul committed? Constantly ask yourself this and thoroughly examine yourself by seeing how you relate to that part called the ruling principle. Whose soul do I have now? Do I have that of a child, a youth…a tyrant, a pet, or a wild animal?” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.
We can all be blown off course by events, including allowing our emotions to add some wind to our sails. Be vigilant to what potential error in your ways might be the cause of disappointment to come. In what way is what you are doing now helping you to achieve your aim? If you have positive answers to that question, then affirm your good behaviour. If not, act now to change direction.
