Yes, I can relate Hilal. I have experienced making something, loving someone, launching something … and failing royally. Used to kick myself and beat myself around the head and weep, feel bad, etc…you know the drill. Then I have since learnt to forgive myself and move on.
But Marcus Aurelius really got the message. “Beautiful things of any kind are beautiful in themselves and sufficient to themselves,” writes Marcus Aurelius in Book Four of Meditations. “Praise is extraneous. The object of praise remains what it was — no better and no worse…” Great persepective. Loved the post, so please keep them coming Hilal!
