So… yeah… this is the first time I missed posting my blog on the right and proper day.
I hope my absence did not negatively affect your own quest for joy, and that my one-to-three regular readers will allow me to thank them for their patience.
Looking back on things, I could say that I was out finding my own joy… because I was. I spent an 8 hour day involved in some martial training, and although broken and sore the next day, I’m filled with joy.
So many folx believe that Stoicism is about being emotionless, or not allowing ourselves luxuries, or living a life bereft of joy or mirth. Definitely not true.
Stoicism is about using our inherent ability to fine tune our human experience so we are our most authentic selves, and DOING what we’re supposed to be doing…
… because it’s in this space that dwells the sincerest of emotions, the most luxurious of luxuries, and ultimately, true joy.
(See y’all tomorrow… oh… wait… later on today.)
