I was just thinking it is almost the year 2020. Possibly a big deal for some, right? I can just imagine the universe disappointed in the theatrics of man. I remember the year 2000 coming almost 20 years ago and people thinking big things over the year change. In reality the universe may look at it and say, “Big Deal!” sarcastically speaking. One day, year, millennium is nothing special to anyone except for mankind because they live their lives by the clock.
Living life by the clock can make one toxic I believe. They think to themselves that they need to do something before a certain time. This creates anxiety, depression and in turn makes such a person toxic to themselves and others. A toxic person never really enjoys the moment like us Stoics do.
Please remember what I taught you about “Karma” there is no bull shit greater than “Karma”. Do good because you are good and do not do good because you think “Karma” will get you in the end. The same is true of time. Accomplish your tasks and toil in your work for the abundant joy it brings and not because of some time keeper.
Take care never to be toxic to yourself. Sometimes it is easier to see the toxicity in other people but honesty and humility will help us identify any toxic characteristics in our own selves. Hind sight is 20/20 isn’t that ironic? Constantly evaluate yourself to make yourself a better man.
Use good positive words in your daily speech like; awesome, brilliant, beautiful, cool, interesting etc. Avoid complaining toxic words like: I wish, I want, and negative connotations.
Rid yourself of stress and toxic people in your life. You can identify the life sucking toxic people that are never fulfilled in life and constantly complain that someone else has it better. They have an excuse for everything they suffer in order to blame it on someone else.
Take control and responsibility for your own life. When you do this the blessings will never end. Love yourself then you will know how to love another.
“Today I escaped anxiety. Or no, I discarded it, because it was within me, in my own perceptions — not outside.” — Marcus Aurelius.
