"life is opinion"

"The universe is change, life is opinion."

"The mind in itself wants nothing, unless it creates a want for itself; therefore it is both free from perturbation and unimpeded, if it does not perturb and impede itself."

~Marcus Aurelius

Wikipedia: Stoicism

Maybe life isn't opinion, but our perception of it is surely.

There are a few things about Stoicism which have always attracted me... Like all philosophies that have touched my life, I have felt free to pick and choose the pieces that rang true, and not necessarily the whole.

There are moments though, when I wish there was some "unified theory"  of me.

Morning will come too early, and I have spent too long on too many catch up things..
