Affirmation for July 11-12, 2009: Aristotle

Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way... you become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions. ~Aristotle  Greek critic, philosopher, physicist, & zoologist (384 BC - 322 BC)   Have a great weekend!   Doug       Remember, you can also receive DailyStrength updates by following us on Twitter and Facebook.

This comment by Aristotle rings so true - and fortunately I\'ve been responding. Outta work since Jan. I still get up every morning, go to a coffee shop, get online, look for jobs, study for a class coming up this fall semester, then go to the gym, i.e., I\'m \"acting in a particular way\" so that when I eventually do get a job, the change won\'t be so disruptive. Maybe like Aristotle, I could call myself a zoologist? I\'ll be volunteering for an Animal Protective Association. Well ok, not a zoologist; more like a nurse.
