Today’s Daily Stoic writing prompt: Am I cultivating the invincibility of my power to choose?
Right now, my power to choose is driven by the fact that I have a sinus headache and will not be making much of an update today. It was a long, busy day, followed by some creative work (writing the scroll text for the scribal challenge that’s coming up), followed by Toastmasters. Too much looking at screens today has my eyes watering. I’ve taken a painkiller, and I think my best bet is to simply allow myself to choose to relax. There are no must-complete deadlines for the next couple of hours. If the Aleve kicks in, I may try to read a bit. But that’s about it for today.
