Marcus Aurelius

“Our actions may be impeded…but there can be no impeding our intentions or dispositions. Because we can accommodate and adapt. The mind adapts and converts to its own purposes the obstacle to our acting."

MARCUS AURELIUS

Practical Life Philosophy

In our daily lives, we forget this timeless formula: the things that seem to be blocking us are small and the obstacles blocking us are actually providing us answers for where to go next. 

Stoicism explained

Stoicism explained

  • In any and every situation—no matter how bad or seemingly undesirable it is—we have the opportunity to practice a virtue.
  • Stoics like to refer to the phrase amor fati–loving the things that happen to us. 

“There is good in everything, if only we look for it.”

LAURA INGALLS WILDE

Cultivate Stoicism in your life

Stoic philosophy can be cultivated as a practical philosophy:

  • Seeing the good in everything that happens around us, not feeling hijacked or negatively affected by fate and life events.
  • Treating life as an experiment, not being overly attached to things, people and decisions.
