Daily Journey – August 27th: Laugh, or Cry

There seems to always be some humor to be found in any given situation. If you look for the lighter side of things it will help ease the burden of the negative emotions that can overwhelm us during our tragedies and troubles.
 
When my Father passed away there were moments of deep pain and sorrow, but there were, and still are, moments where I remember something that brings a smile to my face.
 
Focusing on these moments has helped the most.

Daily Journey is a collection of my thoughts from reading The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.  My objective is to gain greater control of my emotional responses by reading and sharing my thoughts on stoicism with you all everyday over the course of a next year.  If you would like to explore these topics with me, and others who are seeking to gain emotional control I these articles to the Mastery of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.

Live Skillfully!
