Daily stoic view events objectively

If you are pained by any external thing, it is not this thing that disturbs you, but your own judgement about it. And it is in your power to wipe out this judgement now. But if anything in your own disposition gives you pain, who hinders you from correcting your opinion? And even if you are pained because you are not doing some particular thing that seems to you to be right, why do you not rather act than complain?

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Natural disaster, terrorists attacks or even people being cut due to redundancy. You can control how you feel and Dont get too hung up because these are not things you can control.
Focus on things you have control over.
