Quote of the Day

“Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.” -Epictetus

Very interesting quote, I have some thoughts about it but what do you interpret it to mean?

  1. For me, I immediately felt a sense of loss because I am struggling to return to my wholeness of self right now. But it was not a bad thing. I see how far I have come and how much I used to bear up under that was not good for me. “Adorning myself accordingly” is about truly being who I am, ensuring that I copy no one and am true to myself both in my own conduct and presentation to the world as well as in how I treat myself. Thanks for the thought of the day, Niki, you have inspired me to do something similar on my blog where not much has been inspiring me lately. May I be accordingly adorned as the free spirit hippie girl I am inside. Happy being YOU! Love this.

  2. Janice, I’m so glad to hear that you were inspired by this quote. I love the idea of being your true self. It’s so easy to want to be somebody or something else, especially when we are struggling in our own lives and hoping for something better. But you were not put on this earth to be a copy, you were meant to be a one of a kind original. I hope you find lots of happiness and remember to seek adventure whenever you can. Life is all about experiences.

    Lots of love,
