Using Meditation As A Reset Button

The last few days have been pretty overwhelming for me due to the solar eclipse. I could go into detail about why the moon phases have a huge impact on me, but I’ll blog about that, along with my spiritual awakening, at a different time, when I’m ready to share.

So this morning while enjoying my cup of coffee, I remembered to read yesterday and today’s Daily Stoic, since I forgot yesterday. What I read today is just what I needed to read and be reminded of: the present moment.

Stoicism is Needed in Modern Society

Seriously.

I generally care about the well being of people and want to inspire them to live a great life but sometimes things need to be said in its most original form without wearing a mask and beating behind the bush.

What My Blog Is and Isn’t About

My life. Duh. 😉 It’s about the good, the bad, the setbacks I deal with and how I push forward. I am an advocate of stoicism and to me it is by far the most useful type of philosophy a human can put to use when life gets real ugly. It can be a bit perplexed but I’ll try to simplify it the best way I can anytime I incorporate it into my posts. After all, I’m all about keeping things simple. It’s the stoic way.

We All Have To Start Somewhere

I started this blog, while I was drunk, a couple of months ago without any indication of its future.

All I really wanted was to get my ideas out there, but I slipped. I published maybe 2 posts in November. I had no idea what I was doing. I had no followers, no views and no likes.

Embracing Loneliness

There are times in our life where we may feel alone… and that’s ok.

I’ve felt alone many times in the past but every time I felt that way, I learned something. I learned the value of people in your life and how human bonding plays an important role.

Interesting Finds

I love books. Libraries and bookstores just fascinate me. They are just filled with so much knowledge. Even shopping around on Amazon gets me all excited because there are books there that I can’t find in libraries or bookstores. Books are awesome!

So I was browsing around on Amazon.com to look for some interesting books and not only did I come across interesting books, I came across some interesting book ends. I figure I’d share a few of what I found.
