“Life is neither good nor bad; it is the space for both good and bad.” –Seneca
Life is the canvas. You are the artist.
Life is the blank page. You are the author.
Life is the stage. You get to perform on it.
You create yourself in response to whatever comes.
There is much that you have no control over. Unburden yourself from trying to control what is not yours to control.
But you can craft your response to whatever good or bad presents itself to you in the tiny and vast space of your life.
