REMEMBER IT’S ONLY FOR NOW
Everything ends. Or, in the words of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius: ‘Run down the list of those who felt intense anger at something: the most famous, the most unfortunate, the most hated, the most whatever. Where is all that now? Smoke, dust, legend… How trivial are the things we want so passionately.’ Remind yourself that it’s all going to be over at some point. Then make a dinner reservation for you and someone you like.
