Wipe Your Nose

“But my nose is running!”

“What do you have hands for, idiot, if not to wipe it?”

“But how is it right that there be running noses in the first place?”

“Instead of thinking up protests, wouldn’t be easier just to wipe your nose?”

Epictetus – Discourses

It’s easy to sit and think “poor me – why me?”

Life isn’t fair and it never has been. History shows this.

Rather than spending energy and time and saying “why is this happening to me? – what did I do?” – wipe your nose – take the action. Don’t waste time on the problem – just focus on the solution.
