We are living in an era of uncertainty. Nothing is permanent, be it our health, job, or relationship. But does this mean we should stop living?

The last few years of the pandemic and losing loved ones have taught us about our limited life and bought us closer.

The current economy talks about recession, and the press publishes news and story about mass layoffs.

Times like these make us more resilient and teach us about a better future. We can seize the opportunity and fight it with brevity or surrender and live in misery, getting sick and depressed.

Some things are in our control and others not. Things in our control are opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever are our own actions. Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and, in one word, whatever are not our own actions.
