“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?’
