Get back on your feet, keep trying, and continue strengthening wisdom

After a completely unjarring holiday montage — a week and a half of life-disrupting partying, excessive consumption, and sleep deprivation — it’s time to re-establish some routines.  I fell off the wagon a bit with my journaling, missing a few days this week and neglecting my blog as well.  But there are a few things…

Now’s the time

I’ve only got a short blog entry on tap for today — it’s been a super busy day and don’t have a whole lot of time to write today. Nevertheless I still wanted to get something out there. This morning I was listening to a podcast where the host talked about living for and seizing this…

Suffering through perspective

There’s a quote from Epictetus that, as of late, has really made an impression on me — and I’ve heard enough commentary on it that I think is worth extra meditation on and visualizing its application in all areas of my life. Epictetus said, We suffer not from the events in our lives, but from…
