Time to think…about your impulses

“Don’t be bounced around, but submit every impulse to the claims of justice, and protect your clear conviction in every appearance.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

 

Life can sometimes feel like a rollercoaster with its ups and downs, its sudden twists and turns making you feel scared, sick and exhilarated. Unless managed, these impulses can make life feel like a never-ending rollercoaster, even threatening to derail you.

 

Recognise them for what they are – impulses. Regain your composure. Ask yourself ‘who is in control here? What are my guiding principles? What do I choose to do about it?’
