Stoic Advice

Take a look at this cartoon of someone asking for an advice from Epictetus, one of well-known Stoic philosophers.

The point is that we could never really know in advance what would happen in the future, so being mindful in the present moment and rejoice in it is the best thing we could do, as past time was once a present time and future time will definitely be present time. It’s all about now and how we choose our mind to deal with anything happens in it.

What do you think about the cartoon? Feel free to share your thoughts through comments below.

Have a great day—filled with great present moments! 😉
