31 Days of Stoicism

A lot has happened since the last time I posted. The big one being I finally graduated, so now I have more time to blog and post. And since this is the start of a new month, I thought why not start with a 30 day challenge to kick things off. So Starting today I will be practicing Stoicism for 30 days. Using a few philosophical practices to help.

Stoicism is an ancient Greek philosophy that stressed that virtue is the sole good and to live according to nature. The main tenant being that there are some things in our control and somethings that are not. It is a philosophy rooted in practice, for the ancient stoics believed that the best indication of a person’s philosophy was how that person behaved.

I will post a more in depth article tomorrow, stay tuned!

“To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream.”

It is the March 1st. The beginning of the third month of the year 2017. Two full months have passed since the start of the new year. Where are you on your goals? Did you make any? Did you give up on them a few weeks in?

Probably. That’s ok. That’s what happens. But what is not ok, is giving up entirely. If you truly made a commitment to the goals you gave yourself, seeing them through is the noble thing to do. The base thing, the low thing, is to give up, quit, and revert back to your old habits. That ends now.

It’s a new month and winter is here. Spring is coming. Where and who will you be on the 21st?
