Hit The Restart Button – Refresh Your Thinking

Restart Life Button

Your principles can’t be extinguished unless you snuff out the thoughts that feed them, for it’s continually in your power to reignite new ones…

It’s possible to start living again! See things anew as you once did – that is how to restart your life!

…..Marcus Aurelius, from Meditations

Marcus Aurelius reminds us that no matter what happens, no matter how disappointing our behavior has been in the past, our principles themselves remain unchanged. We can return and embrace them at any moment. What happened yesterday – what happened five minutes ago – is the past. We can reignite and restart whenever we like.
