A traveler asked a shepherd: “What kind of weather are we going to have today?”
The shepherd replied, ‘The kind of weather I like.”
The traveler retorted, “How do you know it will be the kind of weather you like?’
The shepherd calmly answered, “Having found out, sir, that I cannot always get what I like, I have learned always to like what I get. So I am quite sure we will have the kind of weather I like.”
Happiness and unhappiness lie in the way we meet events, not in the nature of those events themselves. Happiness comes from deep fulfillment. If you do your work conscientiously and do not worry about what might happen, you will have nothing to disturb you.
Quote: “Very little is needed to make life happy. It is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” – Marcus Aurelius
