“Live as if you were living already for the second time and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now!”
It seems to me that there is nothing which would stimulate a man’s sense of responsibleness more than this maxim, which invites each of us to imagine first that the present is past and, second, that the past may yet be changed and amended. Such a precept confronts each of us with life’s finiteness as well as the finality of what we make out of both our life and ourselves. (Victor Frankl. Man’s Search for Meaning)
“The last of human freedoms”—the ability to “choose one’s attitude in a given set of circumstances.” This ultimate freedom.
Wishing you peace and wellbeing as you examine the choices you are making and the life you are living.
PS: Remember to hold the ones you love just a little closer and tighter this week (without expectations)
