To every other beast in this world today is just like any other. No fanfare will be brought by the birds at midnight and no lion will mark the midnight hour. These are human inventions only. But still for us they have meaning. The new year is at best a preferred indifferent. If it comes and brings glad tidings will you gladly accept the gift of fortune? But, will you also gladly accept whatever challenges she brings to bear as well. Stoicism is a box of tools, a set of trusty items that get better with age. And just like tools they are best when used. You may rue the day you must use them to tackle some problem but you must treasure it's existence. And always keep them keen to be used at a moments notice. You have been given the gift of another year behind you. Be grateful and bear it on your heart that you may not be here tomorrow to see the sunrise, let alone on Dec 31st 2021....
