You Can Only Control Your Own Thoughts“You have power over your mind — not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” — Marcus Aurelius

Self-awareness is a very powerful thing. The more and more that I learn about life — through my own experiences and through the stories of others — I realize the importance of understanding.
Understanding not only the world around you, but also understanding yourself.
Throughout the majority of my life, I’ve pent a lot of my time thinking about the things around me: problems I see, people I interact with, things that I want.
But lately I’ve been spending more and more time learning about myself. The best ways I’ve been able to do that:
- Writing (publicly and privately)
- Noticing what makes me happiest
- Noticing who makes me happiest
I’ve been making a concerted effort to become more self aware. And in doing that I’ve been able to better understand what I can control (what to think about) and what I cannot.
Anyways, have an awesome day!
