LESSONS THROUGH MY EXPERIENCES
The inspiration behind my “Meditations” section of writings is the late Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
Born April 26, 121 AD, Marcus Aurelius served as the ruler of the most powerful Empire at that time from 161-180 AD. Even with the immense responsibilities he was burdened with, he was a faithful follower of Stoicism and Stoic philosophy.
The goal of Stoicism is to find calm and peace no matter what may be going on around you. In a way, separating outside forces from inside forces (emotions).
Instead, these meditations will be little notes and lessons to myself that I have acknowledged and experienced along the way.
Listen, we aren’t that unique.
Sure we all have one-of-a-kind genes, finger prints, etc.
…the pain, struggles, frustrations, and setbacks I might be going through, there is a good chance you have (or will) experience a version of them yourself.
My goal is that these lessons and tidbits help you in your journey.
