Seneca Rewritten for all of Us

Hurry up and live, and consider each day as a completed life...

One who believes every day that life has been complete enjoys peace of mind.
S/he enjoys the present without depending on what does not yet exist...
S/he does not hurl toward an uncertain goal, for s/he is satisfied with what s/he has.
Nor is s/he satisfied with little, for what s/he possesses is in the universe...
"All this belongs to me".

-- Seneca, Roman Philosopher and Statesman via ME Middleton

Taking care of yourself and your gifts is a way of honoring the Giver. Live Now.
