Today, let us remember the words of the ancient Stoic philosopher Musonius Rufus: “The only thing that is truly good is the good that is within us.”
External circumstances and possessions can bring temporary pleasure or comfort, but true and lasting goodness can only be found within ourselves. It is up to us to cultivate our own virtues, such as wisdom, courage, justice, and self-control, and to use them to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.
So today, let us focus on improving ourselves and becoming the best version of ourselves that we can be. Let us strive to live a life guided by our values and to use our unique strengths and abilities to make a positive impact in the world. Remember, the only thing that is truly good is the good that is within us, and it is up to us to nurture and cultivate it.
