Many of you know by now I’m a fan of Stoic philosophy. Every morning, my husband and I read a daily meditation from Ryan Holiday’s Daily Stoic. Every now and again, one of them really moves me. Cuts right to the essence of the issues we deal with in life. Today’s quote is one of those messages. Society works hard to create new and better distractions. It is up to us to bring our awareness to how we interact with them so we stay the course in alignment with our values and the people and matters that are most important to us.

What are one or two things you could either take on or let go to ensure you’re not being “yanked by the string” each day?

With love and gratitude,
