Think of those who, not by fault of inconsistency but by lack of effort, are too unstable to live as they wish,
but only live as they have begun.”
- Seneca, On Tranquility of Mind, 2.6.b
What’s stood out to me is that we have every right to change our minds (read as revoke consent), even if we’ve committed to a path, it doesn’t mean we’re committed forever… especially if that path turns out to be severely flawed or blocked.
And even if the path is flawed or broken, it could be of such value to you that you double-down, reinvest, and fix the flaws, as well as remove the blockages, remembering that we can only control what we can control. Things beyond our sphere of control are better left to anyone NOT US.
Move when necessary. Stay and fight when necessary.
The more we look to Virtue to guide us, we’ll know when “necessary” becomes “now”.
